Scott Youngberg: Listen to the Music

The Difference

(Scott Youngberg)
February, 2011
Written and composed by Scott Youngberg

This Started as an idea I had for a song called "Snowflakes." Then writing continued.

I ended up chucking the title and all references to it and ended up with "The Difference"

You never know where you'll end up when you start!

You might be early or always late

You might always worry or be quite sedate

You might be winning or losing at some game

(But) Everyone is different, which makes us all the same


Some people set out to be masters of their fate

Others never go out, they sit at home and wait

But we all originate from the same template

Every individual has similar DNA


          One and one are two

          Two and one make three

          One can make a difference

          When no one else can see


           Standing still or still evolving

           We all have our different problems

           Stand together – We can solve them (with)

           The difference

            It’s what we have in common.


She likes to drive, He sits at a desk

He wants to travel far, She never leaves the nest

You’re a master of your craft, maybe the best?

Either way you’re different, just like all the rest


          One and one are two

          Two and one make three

          One can make a difference

          When no one else can see


Different people. Different Names.

Aren’t you glad we’re not the same?

Come the day - The whole world may

See the difference

Another way
