"Not That Different" as written by and Karen/scott Taylor-good....
She said we're much too different
We're from two separate worlds
And he admitted she was partly right
But in his heart's defense he told her
What they had in common
Was strong enough to bond them for life
He said look behind your own soul
And the person that you'll see
Just might remind you of me

I laugh, I love, I hope, I try
I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry
And I know you do the same things, too
So we're really not that different, me and you

She could hardly argue
With his pure and simple logic
But logic never could convince a heart
She had always dreamed of loving someone more exotic
And he just didn't seem to fit the part
So she searched for greener pastures
But never could forget
What he whispered when she left

I laugh, I love, I hope, I try
I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry
And I know you do the same things, too
So we're really not that different, me and you

Was it time or was it truth
Maybe both lead her back to his door
As her tears fell at his feet
She didn't say "I love you"
What she said meant even more

I laugh, I love, I hope, I try
I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry
And I know you do the same things, too
So we're really not that different, me and you

    General CommentMaybe she is beautiful and he is not that good looking. Maybe she is rich and he is not. He is saying that they're both human, with the same wants, needs, and desires in life. They have the same basic functions. They laugh, they love, they hope, they try, they feel, they need, they fear, they cry, they can be together, if she would give him a chance. It turns out that she realized he was right. This doesn't happen all the time in life. A guy who doesn't look hot, while the woman does, doesn't often find love with her. A guy who is possibly poor or middle class doesn't usually hook up with a rich girl. Maybe an inspirational song to some, but it doesn't usually work out. It tries, though! One of those sweet songs that say "hey, if you get right down to it, everyone is the same, and we can be together." It's got a positive message, but like i said, the below-average looking guy doesn't usually get the hot chick, and the lower-class fellow doesn't usually find love with the ritzy chicks. Still, a nice song.
