Not The Same

You say it’s not the same
When we’re together.
We look out at the rain and watch the weather.
From our house all windows and shutters.
While our dreams they spill from the gutters.

You say it’s not the same
When we’re together.
We follow moth to flame; we follow to the letter.
As the rain that falls from the heavens
Leaves our love at sixes and sevens.
You know it’s not the same…

But the river deep with words we speak
That would dry up over time
It was once so filled with love that spilled
Flowing freely like the wine.

See the picture in the frame.
We were once together.
See the couple we became
Are they worse off now or better?
Let our words that spill to the paving
Wash away all trace of our craving
And still it's not the same.

Oh the river deep with words we speak
That would dry up over time
It was once all filled with love that spilled
Flowing freely like the wine.

You say it’s not the same
When we’re together.
Slings and arrows taking aim
Com'on girl it's now or never.
With the sky, all flashes and thunder
Spilling light on all that we plundered.

You say it’s not the same
When we’re together.
We look out at the rain
And curse the weather.
Though our joy it gives way to sorrow
Will the sun be shining tomorrow?
Will we fly two birds of a feather
High above all trace of this weather
But something's not the same…

You say it’s not the same
You say it’s not the same
Not the same!
