"Stay The Same" as written by and Neil Tolliday Simon Mills....
I'm looking to see if I can
And you're looking for me to begin this
Just try to pretend if you can
While they're waiting for me to unwind.
Again...

But I can't find a way
No, I can't find a way
To just try and
Just try and erase this love

(Cause we stay the same,
We stay the same)
Now I'm looking to see
(We stay the same)
If you're sad or just lonely
So next time I can be ready for

I'm waiting to find out when
And I'll be trying to see my way in to this
Just try to pretend if you can
While they're waiting for me to unwind... Again

But I can't find a way
No, I can't find a way
To just try and
Just try and erase this love

Just call I know you're always around
(We stay the same)
And I can't seem to escape this feeling
(We stay the same)
Now I'm looking to see
(We stay the same)
If you're just sad or lonely
So next time I can be ready for

    General Commenti think its about two people after a break up. he is trying to see if he can forget their relationship, and she's waiting for him to begin a new relationship with her. Both of them cant forget their past relationship (they STAY THE SAME) "I'm waiting to find out when" its about him trying to see when can he talk to her again/ be back with her again.

    General Commentman, these lyrics are the ones i first heard, but i just listened to another version where it's like "no i can't find a way, to just try and, just try and explain myself"

    the other version was different at other parts too, but i think i like this version better for some reason.

    General CommentYeah...this is the older version of the song. The newer version has lyrics that are a little different:

    I'm looking to see if I can
    And you're looking for me to begin, this...
    Just try and pretend if you can
    While you're waiting for me to unwind, again...

    But I can't find a way,
    No, I can't find a way
    to just try and explain myself

    (Because we stay the same)
    We stay the same
    Looking to see if you're..
    Sad or just lonely so next time
    things will be different.

    I'm waiting to find out when.
    And this waiting is starting to hurt my head.
    Just try and pretend if you can.
    Because if we fall,
    we'll fall hard again.

    But I can't find a way...
    No I can't find a way..
    to just try and explain myself

    (Because we stay the same)
    We stay the same
    (For now I'm..)
    Looking to see if you're
    sad or just lonely
    so next time...things will be different

    Just calm down
    (Stay the same)
    I'm always around
    and I can't seem to shake this out
    (And I'm still)
    Looking to see if you're
    sad or just lonely
    so next time...things will be different
