"A Different Kind" as written by and Ronald Aaron Wasserman Kathleen Ann Fisher....
we never play kissy-face in front of strangers
we never run to each other in slow motion
no rolling around on the shore with sand between our toes
but i guess this is

a different kind of wonderful
we’re in love in the real world
it’s not what i thought it would be
but i can’t let this go
a different kind of happiness
doesn’t get more real than this
it’s not what they said it’d be
but i can’t let this go

i didn’t see anything in you when we first met
when i believed i would fall in love at first sight
night after night we bared our souls over coffee
now i think i know you

a different kind of wonderful
‘cause we’re in love in the real world
it’s not what i thought it would be
but i can’t let this go
a different kind of blissfulness
we can’t get more real than this
it’s not what they said it would be
but i can’t let it go

i never saw the fireworks
the stars didn’t fall from the sky
but this is more beautiful than a quick flash

i never saw a rainbow
the stars didn’t fall from the sky
but this is more meaningful than a quick flash

a different kind of wonderful
we’re in love in the real world
it’s not what i thought it would be
but i can’t let this go

a different kind of happiness
it doesn’t get more real than this
it’s not what they said it would be
but i can’t let this go
no i can’t let it go
no i can’t let it go

    General CommentYea I agree... It makes more sense that he means the pain he's talking about is that he is watching someone he loves with someone else and it hurts him pretty bad.
