not that different lyrics – collin raye

she said, “we’re much too different
we’re from two separate worlds”
and he admitted she was partly right

but in his hearts defense he told her
what they had in common
was strong enough to bond them for life

he said, “look behind your own soul
and the person that you’ll see
just might remind you of me”

i laugh, i love, i hope, i try
i hurt, i need, i fear, i cry
and i know you do the same things too
so we’re really not that different, me and you

now she could hardly argue
with his pure and simple logic
but logic never could convince a heart

she had always dreamed of loving
someone more exotic
and he just didn’t seem to fit the part

so she searched for greener pastures
but never could forget
what he whispered when she left

“i laugh, i love, i hope, i try
i hurt, i need, i fear, i cry
and i know you do the same things too
so we’re really not that different, me and you”

was it time or was it truth?
maybe both lead her back to his door
and as her tears fell at his feet
she didn’t say i love you, what she said meant even more

“i laugh, i love, i hope, i try
i hurt, i need, i fear, i cry
and i know you do the same things too
so we’re really not that different
no we’re really not that different, me and you”
