You and I
We’re two of a kind
I hate to say it but you’ll never relate
What makes you tick?
It makes me smile.
You said that I should get away from it all
And bury my head in the sand if I want to
I think you…should thank me now.

You were lying wide awake in the garden
Try and you'll get over your stardom
And I could never see you depart us
And you’re my baby
You’re just another girl.
Just another girl.

I never mind the way I had to see ya
My working on a day show never explains why I see you And I feel your pain.
I love to wear my work inside of my head
I can’t complain but you should never react the way you did
I feel your time.

You were lying wide awake in the garden
Try and you'll to get over your stardom
And I could never see you depart us
And you’re my baby

You were lying wide awake in the garden
Try and you'll get over your stardom
And I could never see you depart us
And you’re my baby.
You’re just another girl.
You're just another girl.
You're just another girl.

    General CommentThe beautiful thing about Pete Yorns songs are that he doesn't talk about perfect love, but he speaks of faulty love with endearment. I guess sometimes the faults are what attract us to people, even if they are what inevitably seperate us. I can't wait for his new CD to come out!

    General CommentTo me the song isn't contradicting at all, because after all, isn't your baby, just another girl to someone? Wasn't she that to you at some point? I think it's just about this girl he saw for a while whom maybe he apparentaly fell for in a way, though I don't know how in love he really has to be.
    The song is meaningful to me in that it takes it all down to square one, he's got this memory of watching her sunbathing in the garden and it's passionate for him, but at the same time, now she's just another girl. Everything he mentions is in past tense which leads me to believe it's not really meant to be a romantic song, though the music does facilitate that.
    It's a great, gorgeous song however you interpret it, just my own way of looking at it.

    General CommentGood song. It's depressing in some ways. I like to listen to it and everytime it rises to many levels.

    General CommentThis is so amazing his voice and the tune alone make it beautiful, but then the lyrics are absolutely captivating. The first line is the greatest. "You and I, we’re two of a kind, I hate to say it but you’ll never relate, what makes you tick? It makes me smile." It's so like my entire life.

    General CommentThis was the first Pete Yorn I had heard and I immediately fell in love with it. I love the almost magical feel of the "You were lying wide awake in the garden trying to get over your stardom..," line.
