"The Other Side Of Me" as written by and Anouk/van Veen Teeuwe....
Do I really want to know myself
Do I want to see
Why I'm wonderin' every morning, who's it gonna be today

Staring in the mirror, come tell me, who's that under my skin
And what's the reason they're here for
Tell me what is my own true face
Tell me what is my own true face

But hey here I come
I'm the show's main attraction
I'm a beautiful creature
That's what I am, yeah that's what I am

But the other side of me
I can't explain why I've become
Negative as can be
I'm wonderin' where it's coming from
I know I can't do without it, sure makes me what I am
So I will never stop believin'
In that I love myself someday
In that I love myself someday

But hey here I come
I'm the show's main attraction
I'm a beautiful creature
Yeah that's what I am, Hey that's what I am

    General CommentI love it... So recognizable...
    The bad thought about yourself, negative feelings... Your own "demons" like they call it. Sometimes they're there and you can't put them away they make you feel bad.

    On the other side, there are times that you are proud of yourself, for the things that you do in your life, and the good things you do to other people (I guess it's personal about her own but I like to enlargen the theme a bit so I can find myself in it...). And then you think that thát part is really what you are.

    So you're going back and forth (I don't know the right english expression for the expression I mean, hope it's clear) between those two sides of you, and wondering which is the real you.

    But you have to realise it's both parts of you, the negative part and also the light, cheerful part. And they both makes you what you are, and you need the dark part to realise the good things.

    Probably this sounds very cliché but I wanted to comment on this because it helped me throug some hard time and to accept my negative aspects of myself, and seeing my positive parts more.

    Thanks for this song!
