  • (They'll never try, they'll never see
    What it's like to be the other)

    Never really knew what it meant
    Just always knew that I was different
    'Cause I see a woman in the mirror
    But she's not in my reflection, yeah

    Took a lot for me to realize
    To open up and understand why
    Why everybody looks at me like
    I'm not what I ought to be

    I feel it all, the rise of the fall
    Pulling me under, me under
    With the last breath I breathe
    I swear I'll scream
    Until my lungs burn
    I am the other

    They'll never try, they'll never see
    What it's like to fight, it's like to be
    The other, I am the other
    We'll never hide, we'll never fear
    What it's like to fight, it's like to be
    The other, we are the other

    I've been scratching at the surface
    Trying to find out where the hurt is
    Now that I'm dancing with my demons
    I'm making everybody nervous

    I have to walk the path in front of me
    'Cause I'm not one for following
    And I will not apologize
    Or lie for who I am

    They'll never try, they'll never see
    What it's like to fight, it's like to be
    The other, I am the other
    We'll never hide, we'll never fear
    What it's like to fight, it's like to be
    The other, we are the other

    I feel it all, the rise of the fall
    Pulling me under, me under
    With the last breath I breathe
    I swear I'll scream
    Until my lungs burn
    I am the other

    They'll never try, they'll never see
    What it's like to fight, it's like to be
    The other, I am the other
    We'll never hide, we'll never fear
    What it's like to fight, it's like to be
    The other, we are the other Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
