"Some" as written by and Doug Martsch....
Some people think he's good looking
Other people think he's not
Some people don't even know his name
Other people know it by heart
Some people think he likes to go out dancing
Other people not
One guy I know thinks he's hard to get along with
But a lot of people think he's fine
Yeah, a lot of people think he's fine

And he don't even know
Just sees how each day goes

Some people say she's funny
Other people say she's dumb
Some people say she's stuck-up
Others say she's shy
Some people like her for her charm
Some people take her for granted
Some people want to steal her heart
Yeah, some people want to steal her heart

And she don't even know
How could that be so?

    General Commenti just found this band and i really like this song. i agree with A Raging Bull. everyone sees everyone in a different light. Even though you can share the same general opinion of people you can never feel exactly the same way someone else does about a specific person. you dont love your mom like your dad does and you don't think of your best friend the same way you think of your girlfriend or boyfriend. There are people you hate that others like and vice versa. its just how life works and this song explains it in a very simple way.

    General CommentThis is a really beautiful song, I love it. Doug is an extremely talented guy, and BTS rocks. Life is all summed up in this song, opinions..how we see and feel about others and the differences in those feelings and opinions.

    General CommentThis is a very poignant song about the perceptions of people from others; and how that will never be the whole truth. People have a social facade and that facde in many ways lends itself to who the person actually is, but there are many things hidden that only the person can see; but the longing from others to know, wholly and truly, who another person is...seems almost impossible to know without having to be them.

    General CommentIts about how you appear, in some or most ways, different to every person you know; friends, family, acquaintances. Everyone has a slightly different opinion of you, which leads you to question what your really like, or who you really are. Your sense of identity is compromised. Every new day you observe and question yourself. One of my favorite built to spill songs because i can completely relate to it.
