"Not Like The Other Girls" as written by Lauri Yloenen, Pauli Rantasalmi, Aki Hakala and Eero Heinonen....
No more blame
I am destined to keep you sane
Gotta rescue the flame
Gotta rescue the flame in your heart

No more blood
I will be there for you my love
I will stand by your side
The world has forsaken my girl

Should've seen it would be this way
Should've known from the start what she's up to
When you've loved and you've lost someone
You know what it feels like to lose

She's fading away
Away from this world
Drifting like a feather
She's not like the other girls
She lives in the clouds
And talks to the birds
Hopeless little one
She's not like the other girls, I know

No more shame
She has felt too much pain in her life
In her mind she's repeating the words
All the love you put out will return to you

Should've seen it would be this way
Should've known from the start what she's up to
When you've loved and you've lost someone close to you
You know what it feels like to lose

She's fading away
Away from this world
Drifting like a feather
She's not like the other girls
She lives in the clouds
And talks to the birds
Hopeless little one
She's not like the other girls, I know [Repeat x2]

    General Commentthis seems like a guy who knew a girl who wasn't happy but he wanted to try and change her but ultimately, he couldn't and she commited suicide "No more shame, She has felt too much pain, in her life" & "she lives in the clouds and talks to the birds, hopeless little one".

    General Commentat first i thought it was about somebody with autism, then i realised it was about somebody suffering from a mental illness which could lead to suicide... i hope he helped her in the end

    General Commentit could be about someone with depression and stuff.... fading away - withdrawing from everyone, drifting like a feather- floating without a purpose from one place to the next, lives in the clouds - spends all her time in her head dreaming about what should be or what is wrong with her life, she talks to the birds - doesnt have anyother friends and so she talks to birds?? this song reminded me of me thats what it means to me.. i talk to inanimate objects and animals all the time.. usually better than talking to people.... doesnt nessessarily mean that she killed herself

    General CommentIt could be about a father singing about his daughter ("the world has forsaken my girl") and maybe someone she loves has done something to her and shes now suffering maybe? ("In mind she's repeating the words, All the love you put out will return to you ")
    The lines:

    I should have seen it would be the way
    I should have known from the start what she's up to
    When you've loved and lost someone
    You know what it feels like to lose

    Could mean that the father didnt approve of them dating but they did anyway and now its all fallen apart he has to look after his daughter and these lins:

    She's fading away
    Away from this world
    Drifting like a feather
    She's not like the other girls
    She lives in the clouds
    She talks to the birds
    Hopeless little one
    She's not like that other girls I know

    could mean that because shes so broken hearted shes losing weight, losing friends. drifting into her own world basically her world has fallen apart and shes not like the other girls anymore

    General CommentNo I don't think its about a father...it must have been her boyfriend...and he's saying even though he knew she had problems that he loved her so much it didn't bother him and he just wanted to be with her...but then she committed suicide

    General CommentAm I the only person who has friends who I turn to in a time of emotional need? I've suffered from an emotional illness and a loss that threw me into my own world. This is a song the people around me would listen to. One of my bestfriends, as a matter of fact. We were family. They, were biding their time. Waiting for me to come back to them. Understanding, loving and never wavering in their conviction, even though, I know now, my silence and distance caused them their own problems. They were willing to suffer for me.

    I think this has nothing to do with suicide. I think it's a song of waiting and showing confidence that she will come back. Give her time. Give her love. She'll come back when you least expect it. Forever changed, but still who they all love.

    General CommentThe song is meant as a uplifting message, there is sadness but it is overcome. I believe is it about a girl with troubles in her life that will not take it anymore. Basically the moral is whatever troubles come your way, will make you stronger in the end.

    General CommentHe needs to help his girl through her suffering, but apparently he's loved someone who committed suicide before and he should have known. She can't understand why she gives so much love to the world but only pain is returned. He wants to save her, but he's powerless and now she's going to fade away...

    It's so sad! I get all choked up every time I hear it.

    General CommentIm almost sure its not about suicide, I rememeber reading somewhere an interview whith lauri and that he commented on this song that its specially for a friend of his that has so much troubles in her life that its almost like a grey cloud following her around. Its not about someone who commited suicide, its just about someone who is really sad and has suffering so much that she is loosing her "flame" her soul... sad but true
