about

Written and recorded 2005 for GMB. Gender roles are bogus. Few things frustrate me more than statements like "boys will be boys". The lyric is flawed (I don't like the bit about not being able to reconcile anymore), but the point remains that most divisions are arbitrary.

lyrics

My world is my world
And it's not quite yours
I've always wondered
What the difference is
Was there once a time
That they were the same?
Can I ever know
Or understand you?

We are so similar
But there are certain things
I must say, we can
Never reconcile

I can try to change
But I never really can
I am stuck right here
So far from you
I can try or pretend
But it's just not the same
We're all lost
In a world split in half

I want to comprehend
What must be impossible
I can never win
Oh, what's the difference?

My world is my world
And it's not quite yours
I've always wondered
What's the difference?
