"It's the Same Old Song" as written by Edward Holland, Lamont Herbert Dozier and Brian Holland....
You're sweet as a honey bee
But like a honey bee stings
You've gone and left my heart in pain
All you left is our favorite song
The one we danced to all night long
It used to bring sweet memories
Of a tender love that used to be

Now it's the same old song
But with a different meaning
Since you been gone
It's the same old song
But with a different meaning
Since you been gone
I, oh I

Sentimental fool, am I
To hear a old love song and wanna cry
'Cause the melody keeps haunting me
Reminding me how in love we used to be
Keep hearing the part that used to touch my heart
Saying together forever, breaking up never

It's the same old song
But with a different meaning
Since you been gone
But it's the same old song
But with a different meaning
Since you been gone

Precious memories keep a lingering on
Every time I hear our favorite song
Now you're gone, left this emptiness
I only reminisce the happiness we spent
We used to dance to the music
Make romance through the music

Now it's the same old song
But with a different meaning
Since you been gone
It's the same old song
But with a different meaning
Since you been gone
I, oh I

It's the same old song
But with a different meaning
Since you been gone
It's the same old song

    General CommentEvery couple has a song that means a lot to them. But when the relationship ends, that song isn't as important anymore - and the person that had his or her heart broken doesn't want to hear it anymore. "It's the same old song...but with a different meaning since you've been gone." That's as true as it gets. Powerful oldie, but a goodie.
