Just Like You Lyrics

Play "Just Like You"
on Amazon Music

I could be mean
I could be angry
You know I could be just like you

I could be fake
I could be stupid
You know I could be just like you

You thought you were standing beside me
You were only in my way
You’re wrong if you think that I’ll...

    I think he is talking about his relationship with his father "On my own, because I can't living with you" So he is living with this person,as a teenager I remember feeling some resentment towards my father and the feeling of "I can't wait to move out", it is kind of a stage of growing up. Of course the lead singer may have had a REALLY bad experience with his father which inspired him to write a song.

    I think this song is about either his mother or father,
    YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE THERE TO GUIDE ME, YOU WERE ONLY IN MY WAY YOUR WRONG IF YOU THINK I'LL THAT I'LL BE JUST LIKE YOU
    it kinda gives off some sort of parental guidence that they never wanted and that they found it in the way and frustrating.
    i love the song but.

    I think I agree with all of the other interpretations...but before I read them I thought that maybe he was talking about his father.

    "You thought you were there to guide me..you're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you"

    that kind of made a "paternal" impression on me. Like maybe his father wasn't so great..and the dad wants him to grow up to be just like him..but he didn't want to because of the example that the dad had set for him by being "weak, stupid, mean and ruthless".

    just a thought :]

    You're you. There's only one you. and that's never going to change.
    screw what everyone around you expects you to conform to.
    yeah. Self explanatory.

    Kaii
    the Whole First Three Days Grace Album Is About Him & His Ex/Gf

    "Just Like You" sounds more like the band dealing with an egotistical, self-serving manager than a father figure... A peer trying to take advantage of a situation by trying to seem like he's holding the golden ticket.

    It's probably about how his dad thought he had the upper hand and tried to lead his life.

    Again, the band explains this one on the website. They said that it's about how someone tries to make you do something, and they expect you to do it, but they(adam,probably) do what they want to do.

    This song is just telling you to be yourself. Individuality is key. If you watch the video, you'll get it like that, everyone standing there wearing the same mask. Yeah, it's common for that band.

    I think the songs more about how he could be just like his father... angry, mean, fake, etc., but he won't, hence "you're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you."

    The song is about the singer's dad being a hypocrite.
