"Different Than You" as written by Scott Christopher Stevens, Louis Alfred Herrera and Christopher David Skane....
I used to hate you, no reason why
I was so angry, so full of pride
Lost in opinions, and in you with those
I knew everything that you didn't know

And I used to think I would show I was right
When I knew the truth from a lie

I was so stupid when I was young
I was so stupid to think that I was...

[Chorus]
So different, so different than you
So different, so different than you
I know that I said the truth
So different; I'm no different than you

Was I just jealous, bitter, and cold?
Sins I could never... the lies that I told
I have no respect for you, only myself
A memory I'm not so fond of as well

And I can honestly say I was wrong
So can you forgive me so I can move on?

I was so stupid when I was young
I was so stupid to think that I was...

[Chorus]

We are one and the same
Only with different names
Somethings I know are changing
And I know this love I'm hating

We are one and the same
Your blood runs through my veins
For fuck I feel this failing
I love the love I'm hating

I was so stupid when I was young
I was so stupid to think that I was...

[Chorus]

Different than you
Different than you
I know I said the truth
So different; I'm no different than you

    General CommentThis song is about disliking a girl for something she did in the past and holding a grudge because of pride. Turns out you really are a perfect match as much as you don't want it to be. You succumb to the feelings...

    General Commenti actually think this song isnt about his disliking of a girl but how hwe regrets the way he treated an ex girlfriend when he was younger "And I can honestly say I was wrong
    So can you forgive me so I can move on" among other lines.... the lyrics above have errors too

    General Commenti think its about his dad...

    talks about your blood runs through my veins, i think he hated is father when he was a child and he grew up and turned out like his father anyway

    General Commenti think its about being a relationship with someone whos a mess up. and you think your better and know more then them and your a better person then them. but then you break up and time passes and you relize that your everything that person was inside. im guessing he was young, and when your young you think you know your shit but you dont.

    OR

    it could be his dad. they say your like your parents when you grow up. but when your young you hate them. you live what you lived with

    General CommentNot only if it's about his ex gf or father, but it could be about anyone in his life, whether its in a relationship or some one in his family, or whatever and i don't know if the lyrics is about his (the singer's) life... it might be made up but then again it might not be made up.. anyway great song i think there is a music video to this .. go to youtube.com

    General Commenti think that this song is supposed to be about a person who knows this person and is always like oh my god i hate them they so blah blah blah watever.. nd then as they grow up they realize that they are exactly the same... nd they kinda fall 4 the person nd they feel the only way they can get over it is if they can b forgiven for treating them like shit... idk im prob wrong but that was my interpretation

    General Commentthis is one of the many songs by them that I relate to my opiate addiction.
    I was so stupid when I was young, I was so stupid to think that I was so different than you.
    I've done some realy stupid shit, hurt ppl I love with my lies and hope that they can forgive me so I can move on..
