"The Difference" as written by and Ben/taube Glover....
I checked the map to make sure that I got it right
But still I don't know where You're taking me tonight
And I've tried so hard to mix the old life with the new
But there's not in between if I'm gonna follow You

There's gotta be a difference
It's gotta be significant
If You're really inside changing my life
You would shine, You would be evident
If there's a difference
There's a difference

Here I am, I've got this baggage by my side
But I am ready now to leave it all behind
So I'm taking this moment to tell You I'm open
I'm taking this moment to give You everything

We're not meant to be another face in the crowd

There's gotta be a difference
It's gotta be significant
'Cause You're really inside changing my life
And it's so evident that there's a difference
There's a difference

    Song MeaningI'm usually not good with this whole song meaning thing but I'm catching on, either that or Philmont songs are easy to interpret, haha.

    Let's get down to business:

    "But still I don't know where You're taking me tonight
    And I've tried so hard to mix the old life with the new
    But there's not in between if I'm gonna follow You."

    If you're going to follow Jesus, you have to leave your old sinful life behind and give ALL of you to him, not just part or little bits. THE WHOLE YOU! And now he's finally saying this time I'm truly going to live my life for you.

    By "The Difference" he means that there has to be some difference in his life if he follows the Lord. There's got to be some form of evidence of Christ in his life. When you give and devote your life to Christ, there WILL be a difference and it WILL be significant. :)

    I <3 Philmont songs, they have such rad beats and lyrics; they make a lot of sense and are easy to understand!

    General CommentI agree with RelientKisrad. I will add my 2 cents worth. If we focus on the line "I've tried so hard to mix the old life with the new, But there's not in between if I'm gonna follow You" and the chorus, it can be broken down into this: When non-christians know you are a christian, they watch you very closely. They ask themselves what is different between you, a christian, and them. If we really have a relationship with Jesus Christ, people should be able to see it through your actions. They should see a significant difference beween you and the rest of the world and if the Lord is in your heart changing your life it should be SO obvious.
