I met her in a room of strangers
Laughing as I painted her with mind
Now we meet in darkest places
More sacred than any place
You and I could find

Just like you, only sweeter
Just like you, but more refine
Just like you, without the bitter
Unlike you, she never lies

It's a fresh touch, a new way
A language of our own brought to life
A slow serenade to the broken
Drowning out years
Holding back the tide

When she turns in the shadows
She calls to me
And seems to me
Like you from time to time

(She's) Just like you, only sweeter
Just like you, but more refine
Just like you, only deeper
Just like you, but more alive
(She's) Just like you, but I can feel her
Unlike you, she never hides

The soft pulse
Shakes the whole room
Quiets the sound of the crowded mind

And then she comes in the shadows
She feels to me
Like it used to be
Before we had to try

(She's) Just like you, only sweeter
Just like you, with more inside
(She's) Just like you, without the bitter
Unlike you, she never lies

Ressurrections just a whisper from your lips
And it's coming through
Hard to think of even one thing that I could miss
When it comes to you

Just like you, only sweeter
Just like you, but more refine
Just like you, without the bitter
Just like you, with nothing to hide
Unlike you, she never lies
Unlike you, she doesn't hide

Just like you, only sweeter
Just like you, with more inside
(She's) Just like you, only deeper
She's just like you, but more alive
(She's) Just like you, but I can feel her
Unlike you, she doesn't hide
Unlike you, she never lies
Unlike you, she's always right here..

    General CommentLYOS makes me think about comparing two people... one is a bad relationship you just got out of where you always felt like you were the only one trying and were getting sh*ted on in the process... the other, new one, is the opposite of that old one...

    It almost feels like a letter or a conversation with the old girl with how he keeps saying "She's just like you only ..." better :-P

    General Commenti agree.
    but it also feels like he isn't completely over the first relationship. and he has to keep reminding himself that this one IS better for him.

    General CommentI agree, nicholie, it does seem like he's reminding himself. And i think that perhaps he didn't realize just how bad the first relationship was until he found the new girl, and he can now see just how much better it could be.

    General Commentpersonally i agree wiht nicholie. i think it sounds like hes not totally over the first relationship and hes trying to reassure himself that what hes doing is for the best. great song.

    General Commenti hate to be annoying about the lyrics, but instead of:
    "just like you with more refine"
    it should be:
    "just like you with more inside"

    i have the cd, and in the pamphlet it has some lyrics, so i'm sure those are right.
