"Feel So Different" as written by and Sinead O'connor....
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change
Courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference
I am not like I was before
I thought that nothing would change me
I was not listening anymore
Still you continued to affect me
I was not thinking anymore
Although I said I still was
I'd said I don't want anymore
Because of bad experience
And now I feel so different
I feel so different
I feel so different
I have not seen freedom before
And I did not expect to
Don't let me forget now I'm here
Help me to help you to behold you
I started off with many friends
And we spent a long time talking
I thought they meant every word they said
But like everyone else they were stalling
And now they seem so different
They seem so different
They seem so different
I should have hatred for you
But I do not have any
And I have always loved you
Oh you have taught me plenty
The whole time I'd never seen
All you had spread before me
The whole time I'd never seen
Oh, I mean it was inside me
Now I feel so different

I feel so different
I feel so different
I feel so different
I feel so different

    Pretty sure it's addressed to God, with most of the relevant questions in tow.

    General CommentI think it is addressed to an ex. She is telling him that she is happy now and has become a new person since she was with him.

    In the first verse she is telling about trying to not let him affect her. She had given up on him ("was not listening anymore"). She then goes on to say "I don't want anymore" which could be either that she doesn't want another relationship or that she doesn't want anymore from him "because of bad experience" meaning her experience was that when she wanted more, she was let down.

    The second verse is about her new freedom. I think "freedom" means happiness. She never thought she would be so happy. She says "don't let me forget now I'm here" because she knows she won't always be happy and it is easier to remember pain than happiness. She always wants to remember how she feels when she is happy. Then I think the lyrics are wrong and it's supposed to be "help me to help you to be whole new" meaning she wants him to be happy too.

    In the last verse she tells him that even though he did not treat her well she has forgiven him. She still loves him but is happier without him. She will always care for him. What she learned ("you tought me plenty") is how to appreciate her freedom and happiness. She also learned that she doesn't need a man to be happy which is a lesson every girl should learn. You have to be happy with yourself before you can be happy with others.

    General CommentI think it's about a end of a relationship that she still cares about, but in someway was a bad experience. I think she was fighting against his own heart...

    Anyway... Love sucks!! Love hurts!! ;-(((((
