Lyrics

The Same

Written By: Glen MacNeil,Phil Poli

Not a single day goes by
That I don't see her in my mind
A missing face glued inside a frame

I sleep with the porch light on
A torch to rest my hopes upon
She might hear me whispering out her name

I wonder if she ever feels the same

I drive for hours with the radio on
Until it plays our favourite song
It takes me to a special time and place

I look out at a million stars
Find the one we said was ours
As if a wish could bring her back again

I wonder if she ever feels the same

Back in the day we were carefree and crazy
But I fumbled with change when it came
I overreacted I'd take it all back
Did I say I was sorry
I'm so sorry

I wonder if she ever feels the same

Face inside a frame
Whispering her name
Wish her back again

Every day's the same

(C) 2014 MacNeil/Poli
