The ending was improvised in the studio and it's probably better than anything else I could've planned to end the album with.


I find it strange that you feel so lonely
And the reason you say is that too many have wanted you
And you find it strange that I feel so lonely
Because... no one gives a damn
So how could it be that we both feel the same
When such different things have happened to us?
Is it so simple or could it be deeper?
Is it my gender or is it my sex?

Sometimes I feel like the world is too big
And all I really want is to understand everything
I've said it before and I'll say it again: we live in a world split in half
But how do I get to the other side of this chasm?

I wish I could say that we are the same
But I fear that we aren't and I wish I knew how
Try as I might and try as I do -
And I do, but I can't understand what it's like
Call it mystique or call it what you will
But what gets me down is I'm not allowed to try
Who cares that I'm male or if you're a girl?
You can be me but why can't I be you?

I can't feel the pain that you feel inside
I can't know what it's like or share in your thoughts
Perhaps we experience life in a different way
Words can't express all the feelings caught in between

I just wish I knew how it feels, what it's like
I suppose that you could ask the same of me
I just want to know and understand everything
But how can we meet and share what we know?
