You're Somebody Else Lyrics

I saw the part of you
That only when you're older you will see too
You will see too
I held the better cards
But every stroke of luck has got a bleed through
It's got a bleed through
You held the balance of the time
That only blindly I...

    I think this is a song about being confronted by a past version of yourself. The old version doesn't like what it sees he has become. The main lyrics are the current version speaking, the hook is the past

    This song has several meanings which I think different people will connect to in different ways based on experiences of their own. For me, this song is about change. Two people in love, however, one is blinded in which they will only realize what the other person sees after they grow older and obtain more life experiences. In the song, Flora Cash says "I couldn't believe you were gone." Meaning the old version of what someone knew another person to have completely molded into another person. The person is now unrecognizable emotionally because they've changed so much, or now their true colors have finally shown. This also connects to a larger concept of deception and how deception can be used to fall in and out of love. Finally, when Flora Cash says, "I saw the part of you that only when you're older you will see it too," they are describing a person so stubborn they aren't willing to accept who they truly are or have become. Only after this person has time to grow will they realize who they were.

    I have to agree with a previous interpretation that it’s aboyt a parent watching their child grow into a teenager. The patent notices that their child Is developing an adult appearance, making new friends, listening to different music, discovering romance ect. The parent is telling their child to “go forward slowly, it’s not a race to the end” as if they don’t want them to change so much that they are unrecognizable.

    I think the lime “I saw the part of you that only when you’re older you will see too” I’d yhwir way of telling their child they will always love them. Most teenagers dislike a lot about themselves. They have great qualities but they become obsessed with shallow things like social media and other people’s opinions. They only accept attention from friends and guys/girls they are interested in. The parent is saying that even though their child looks and sounds different, they have certain qualities like their sense of humour, curiosity, or kindness that won’t change no mater what age they are.

    I think it`s about two people who have had a relationship. One of the two did something that made the other person see him/her in a completely different way than before. Maybe the person believed in him/her and was always there for him/her and knew him/her better than anyone else. Mybe the person knew that he/she had dark sides but also good ones, that he/she couldn`t see yet. But the person started racing things. He/She got scared and did something that made the other person stop believing in him/her because he/she started destroying him/her. The person can`t believe that he/she would just go away.

    I heard that it was about Alzheimer's also, and it makes since when you listen to the lyrics and apply it to her developing the disease.

    It's crazy how I think about a person and a ghost.The ghost is the future self of the person who is more mature and knows better.Things happen sometimes which we cannot make sense of but we do when we get older,at least most of it.So the ghost whose the future self of the person,is more knowledgable,knows the decisions the person has yet to make,all the mistakes that the ghost still regrets even though it has been so long,and all the opportunities and closed doors.But sometimes we can never really understand our past self,all the things we did and all the things we really wanted to do but didn't,that's where the person comes in.

    To me it means 2 people who knew each other when young,but are growing older.it is not easy getting older.and perhaps the one person is saying they see the true beauty inside even though the outside beauty fades with time.I am in my late 50's.I have a friend who has changed so much I no longer know who he is.Yet I am stupid and still think of him as being the kind person he was when we were younger.He is not.

    I think this song is about watching a lived one go through the horrible effects of alzheimers. I showed this to my dad(he's 64 years old) and he changed my view of what I thought this song was about. And after his interpretation, I listened to the song and I dont know how I missed it. Him and I think that this sing is about just that. Alzheimers is a horrible disease. We know first hand. Sad song.

    It has to do with a twin flame relationship. One of the twins did not realize who they were until they get older.one recognizes that they hear their own self within the other you look like yourself but you're somebody else.

    i think that this song is about someone really close to you changing in a bad way or a way that you don't like

    When I heard this song it reminded me about when my ex changed me for the worst, one of my friends started noticing me change, a close friend noticed it first but I I denied everything and lied that I was fine. I felt happy for some time before everything happened, I had a horrible anxiety issue. Everyone kept telling me how much I've changed. And I've made everyone uncomfortable with me at the time. When I broke up with my ex and things gor happier after that year, I noticed how horrible I've been acting towards myself and how I've sounded different at the same time sounded normal. That's what I always think when I hear this song.

    According to Cole and Shpresa, the main lyric in the song, you look like yourself but you're somebody else was "more a matter of one speaking to oneself than to another person." They went on to say, "sometimes when we’re dealing with psychological issues, we literally feel displaced internally; alien to ourselves. [The song] ended up taking on multiple meanings and perspectives but the root of it at the beginning was as a sort of self-talk, self-therapy."

    Everybody has the right interpretation. It's about feelings.
    For me it's remind me my ex when we were separated after highschool, I went to college and he went in "prépa", a french ingeneer pre-school. College students are considerated as "idiots" in France so he started laughing at me in front of his friends. He was a good person so it was hard to see him change because of them....

    This song to me means losing an old friend and seeing them as a stranger although you see them how they used to act and sound.

    "Well You look like yourself, but you're somebody else, only it ain't on the surface" and "I saw the party of you that only when you're older you will see too" I would say this is about someone struggling to accept who they are and how they will see their real self as they grow.
