Hand me downs
All the things I hate in you
I recently found
In me
I always promised myself
that I'd never be.

Caught your eye
Recognize the loneliness
that you try and hide
I know
Even though he's right there
you still feel alone

I remember
I still remember those days
I know
Wounds heal to scars
and smother the pain
Now you can't feel a thing

It's too hard to
See the worst parts of myself
reflected in you
I'd hoped
that it would be something I
could one day outgrow

Down again
everything just bottles up
and when you pretend
I know
even though he's right there
you still feel alone

I still remember that day
So cold
Wounds healed to scars
You got so old
I hope I never get old

I always wanted to believe
That I'd be
stronger than you were
Burying everything underneath
Hate the way
Hate the way you'll always be
Part of Me

    General Commentpretty straight foward i'd say.
    he maybe hates someone..or the way they are, and he's realizing he's just like them. but he thought he was better than that, but he's now down to their level. that will always be part of him.
    amazing song.
