Different Lyrics

(Verse one)
I'm looking at you from a distance
I'm wondering how all my feelings changed
Do you remember even half the shit we used to do
And how it used to be
I wish it was different
All these feelings ???
But I still believe
(I mean what are you saying then, damn)(chorus 1)
That it could be different
(You know I miss the butterflies, the look in your eyes, how they would shine)
It could be different
(And now it feels like it's over baby)
That it could be different
(If you would realize that you need to set aside just a little time to..)
It could be different
I know we can make it better baby(Verse Two)
No I can't keep living on memories
What if where this is turning
This isn't meant to be
We used to get lifted
The love we craved it so insatiably
And lately I've been missing all the little things(Rap One)
Maybe I got comfortable with the way you was treating me
Hot meals cooked up, way you would feed me
I'm selfish, how could I let my fear defeat me
Scared of something different, and I see you complete me
But ay I don't like to argue a bit
I promise I'll change if I ain't gotta hear your lip
Oh I'm sorry, I'm saying
But you don't respect
You don't listen you're no different
(Shit, Gotdamn it)
Save your breath(Chorus 2)
That it could be different
(I know you saying I should change, through out time I ain't the same in my ways)
It could be different
(and now it feels like it's over babe)
(I see you're feelings start to fade, it's all my fault huh' your feelings ain't the same)
That it could be different
(Ma, why is you mad, acting like everything I do is bad)
It could be different
(You got some issues too, listen it ain't nothing we can't get through)
I know we can make it better baby(Bridge)
You're high I'm low
And still this distance seems to grab a hold
I miss you so and making love still feels like coming home
We fuss we fight I leave
You might But then you make it right
But still at night I can't stand the sight of you not in my life(Chorus one)
That it could be different
(You know I miss the butterflies, the look in your eyes, how they would shine)
It could be different
(And now it feels like it's over baby)
That it could be different
(If you would realize that you need to set aside just a little time to..)
It could be different
I know we can make it better baby(Rap2)
Lets take it back to the picnics at Tillman
Flicks with the children
Talks by the lake
Walks through your building
The feeling of fresh love
Can't dismiss this
I know that you miss it
My permanent missus
Permanent Kisses
The flirting and wishing
Before all the back and forth huffing and hissing
Hear me and listen
I remember our mission
So I'm willing to change if you say that I'm different(Chorus 2)
That it could be different
(I know you saying I should change, through out time I ain't the same in my ways)
It could be different
(and now it feels like it's over babe)
(I see you're feelings start to fade, it's all my fault huh' your feelings ain't the same)
That it could be different
(Ma, why is you mad, acting like everything I do is bad)
It could be different
(You got some issues too, listen it ain't nothing we can't get through)
I know we can make it better baby(chorus 1)
That it could be different
(You know I miss the butterflies, the look in your eyes, how they would shine)
It could be different
(And now it feels like it's over baby)
That it could be different
(If you would realize that you need to set aside just a little time to..)
It could be different
I know we can make it better baby
