"U Remind Me" as written by Edmund Louis Clement and Anita Clement Mccloud....
Yo, I ain't seeing you in a minute, but I got something to tell ya, listen.

See the thing about you, that caught my eye,
Is the same thing that makes me change, my mind.
Kinda hard to explain, but girl, I'll try.
You need to sit down, this may take a while.
You see, she sorta looks, just like you.
She even smiles, just the way you do.
So innocent, she seemed, but I was fooled
I'm reminded when I look at you, but,

You remind of a girl, that I once knew.
See her face whenever I, I look at you.
You won't believe all of the things that she put me through.
This is why I just can't get with you.

Thought that she was the one for me,
Til I found out she was on her creep,
Oh, she was sexing everyone, but me.
This is why we could never be.

You remind of a girl, that I once knew.
See her face whenever I, I look at you.
You won't believe all of the things that she put me through.
This is why I just can't get with you.

I know it's so unfair to you,
I relate her ignorance to you
Wish I knew, wish I knew how to separate the two
You remind me, whoa

You remind of a girl, that I once knew.
See her face whenever I, I look at you.
You won't believe all of the things that she put me through.
This is why I just can't get with you.

You remind of a girl, that I once knew.
See her face whenever I, I look at you.
You won't believe all of the things that she put me through.
This is why I just can't get with you.

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who's had his heart broke, and is ready to move on, likes this girl but what he likes about her is the same thing that reminds him of the girl that broke his heart, hence his hesitation...

    General CommentThis is what I can gather from this song.

    The Story: Mr. Guy (as we will call him) walks into a bar/club and sees a hot girl (Miss Chick as she will be called). Miss Chick has (just for humour sake) green eyes and brown hair. Despite the fact that Mr. Guy always gets the girls, Miss Chick doesn't seem to have much interest in him. Well she does, but only in a user way. Anyways Mr. Guy is quite p-oed because Miss Chick has been getting overly friendly with every other guy on earth, but him. And quite frankly I'd be p-oed if someone treated me this way as well.

    Flash forward to sometime in the near, or not so near future. Mr. Guy sees another girl (who we'll call Miss Lady) with green eyes and brown hair, just as Miss Chick had. Miss Lady and Mr. Guy seem genuinely fond of each other. The problem everytime Mr. Guy sees Miss Lady, he is reminded of Miss Chick who had treated him so poorly. So Mr. Guy tells Miss Lady that they can never be together.

    The Moral of The Story: First Mr. Guy has some kind of insecurity issue. Although he loves Miss Lady, he still thinks of how bad Miss Chick treated him. Mr. Guy GET OVER IT! As a women if I were to ignore any man who reminded me of all the asses I've met (and there are a few), well let's just say I'd be a Lesbian. In fact if every women thought this way as Mr. Guy did, well the earth would now be populated only by test tubes. Second it shows that Mr. Guy is quite shallow, he can't seem to focus on what a great person Miss Lady is. The only thing he can think of is "she has green eyes and brown hair as that slut that used me did." And maybe it's me, but I find this attitude Mr. Guy has, just as horrible and ignorant as Miss Chick did.

    General CommentThis is a bit difficult to explain. He falls for this girl and then she treats him badly. She uses him and cheats on him. A ways down the road, she comes crawling back and she's changed. He realizes that she's changed and is a whole different person now, but she reminds him too much of the girl she used to be. He can't forget the way she hurt him.

    General Commentyeah , you know, it could be what fairyinblackandwhite is trying to say, it would make sense, very poetic literaturish if you know what i mean,
    but i think i'll have to go with the whole
    'you remind me of a girl i onced liked but got hurt' scenario, and so he's hesitating , but cant ignore the fact he's attracted to the current girl.
