Pick me back up just to throw me back down
Apologies too like when you're up against the wall
Compassion heals while duplicity kills

You say that I'm different, you say that I'm different
Yhe only thing different is the way I feel about you

You moved up the ladder at a very rapid speed
We mived methodically and calmly
When you got to the top you see enemies

You say that I'm different, you say that I'm different
The only thing different is the way I feel about you

If I knew back then what I know now that it would all turn out like this
I'd sit back and I'd watch you squirm
Cause you say I'm different, I'm different
The only thing different is the way I feel about you

    General CommentThis one is for my ex-boyfriend Antone. "Pick me back up just to throw me back down". That is what you always did to me. But this time I am not gonna go back. I don't love you! "The only thing different is the way I feel about you". I hope that other girl makes you happy, but I know she won't.

    General CommentI think it says "too late" not "too like"...It makes more sense anyway.

    General CommentThis song is about a bad relationship breakup and is a response to a "You've changed... you're different... you never used to be like this, etc" comment. It's not that I've changed, it's that I no longer feel the same way about you so I'm obviously going to act differently towards you.

    General CommentI always thought of it as being more about a friendship that went bad than about a girlfriend, but I guess it could be either.

    General CommentI was under the impression that this song was about Green Day...or bands that were in a similar situation. Think about it.
