"Same Book But Never the Same Page" as written by and Andrew Wade Jeremy Mckinnon....
I've lost a part of me
Cause I am just an open book for everyone to see
I always leave empty handed. I can't keep the things that mean the most to me
I'm walking steady on a tightrope clinging only to the words that I wrote
I might be temporarily blind but I'm not stupid

Can you tell me how you feel and look me in the face? I've always wanted to know
I'll go and drop my guard, you put me in my place. (In my place, put in my place)
I can't stand it. I don't get it. Nothing ever seems to work when you're around
You always build me up to break me down

I'd give you everything but that would never be good enough and that's alright with me
You take me for granted. I tried to help you be who you wanna be
I'm a sucker for a complication
And those that are weak at the seams
You weren't worth my time. You weren't worth my time
But still I let you take it from me

Can you tell me how you feel and look me in the face? I've always wanted to know
I'll go and drop my guard, you put me in my place. (In my place, put in my place)
I can't stand it. I don't get it. Nothing ever seems to work when you're around
You always build me up to break me down

Why do I always do this to myself? Always depending on everyone else
You know it's gonna drive me crazy. You're just a notch in the wall that made me
Why do I always do this to myself? Always depending on everyone else
You know it's gonna drive me crazy. You're just a notch in the wall that made me

Can you tell me how you feel and look me in the face? I've always wanted to know
I'll go and drop my guard, you put me in my place. (In my place, put in my place)
I can't stand it. I don't get it. Nothing ever seems to work when you're around
You always build me up to break me down
You always build me up to break me down
I said you'll always build me up to break me down

You break me down!
You break me down!
We never met on middle ground!
You break me

    My InterpretationThis is what interpret the song as:

    I think this song is about a guy who always gets screwed over by people and he does not know why. When people screw him over, he starts blaming himself and he gets really upset and frustrated. People always get his hopes up and then they let him down. He loses himself in the process of trying to make friends. He does whatever he can to try and keep them around. This guy doesnt get anything out of these short term friendships, he doesnt learn his lesson or anything. He is extremely dependent on other people in life.

    "Ive lost a part of me cause I am just an open book for everyone to see."
    Here, he is saying that he lost part of himself and who he really is in the process of trying to make friends and keep them.

    "I might be temporarily blind but im not stupid."
    This means that deep down, he knows he shouldnt change himself and be someone hes not to get friends. But he is so desperate that he is blinded by it all.

    "Can you tell me how you feel and look me in the face?"
    Here, he is asking one of his fake friends to just be honest with him and stop being fake. He just wants to be like everyone else.

    Overall, he doesnt understand why he cant make any friends or why people always screw him over. It seems that everytime he makes a friend, they are good for a while and then all of a sudden they leave him. In reality, he doesnt want to admit it but he has a disorder where hes obsessed with people and being liked. He has compulsive urges to make friends and those short term friendships alwags seem to die. It drives him literally crazy.

    That was my interpretation :)
