  • It's the guy from the one band
    Cigarette in my left hand
    Whole world in my right hand
    Twenty-five and it's all planned
    Night out and it's ten grand
    Headlines that I can't stand

    But you only get half of the story
    The cash, and the cars, and the glory
    No sleep and we party 'til morning
    'Cause nobody cares when you're boring

    I'm just like you
    Even though my problems look nothing like yours do
    Yeah, I get sad, too
    And when I'm down I need somebody to talk to
    Yeah, I feel the same as you would do
    Same stress, same shit to go through
    I'm just like you
    If you only knew

    If I had it my way, pub lunch every Sunday
    Cheap beer and it's okay
    I wanna lay where she lays
    I wanna stay in these days
    Gonna smoke and it's okay

    But you only get half of the story
    The cash, and the cars, and the glory
    Just like everyone else here before me
    'Cause nobody cares when you're boring

    I'm just like you
    Even though my problems look nothing like yours do
    Yeah I get sad, too
    And when I'm down I need somebody to talk to
    Yeah, I feel the same as you do
    Same stress, same shit to go through
    I'm just like you
    If you only knew

    I'm just like you
    When I need somebody to talk to
    I'm just like you
    When I need somebody to talk to

    Every heart breaks the same
    Every tear leaves a stain
    Can't I just be the same?
    Every heart breaks the same
    Every tear leaves a stain
    Let me be the same

    I'm just like you
    Even though my problems look nothing like yours do
    Yeah I get sad, too
    And when I'm down I need somebody to talk to
    Yeah, I feel the same as you do
    Same stress, same shit to go through
    I'm just like you
    If you only knew

    I'm just like you
    When I need somebody to talk to
    I'm just like you
    When I need somebody to talk to
    I'm just like you
    When I need somebody to talk to
    I'm just like you
