What Makes Me Different?

The things that we did
Just leave me cold and lonely.
You were never really there,
So why should it matter to you,
What I do?

We used to run around,
Scream and shout lying on the ground,
Watching movies and cartoons.
What is she doing here?
Why did you pick her?

What makes me different?
What makes her beautiful?
What's there inside her,
That makes her shine through to you?
What about me,
What makes me different?
