"One in the Same" as written by and Jim James....
On the way back home...
How long did it seem?
Three days or four?
Snow glazed all the trees
My mother held me...
Like a motorcycle, so warm...
We sang melody...
Campin' out all night...
Slow moves in the light...
Of all the things that you've seen...
Was the motorcycle so warm you sang melody?
At that moment I'd know...
Just how close we could be
And though it always was mine...
It always seemed new to me
Ten thousand colors in all...
Eyes like caves on my cheeks
To all the people I've loved...
Don't think poor of me
It wasn't till I woke up...
That I could hold down a joke
Or a job or a dream
But then all three are one in the same
And all then are one in the same
And all us are one in the same

    General CommentWhat a song and ending to this spectacular album. The Harmony this band has on tracks like this, rollin back, etc. is very euphoric. The Lyrics jim writes are even better! lol

    General CommentI think this is the most beautiful song by My Morning Jacket. I saw Jim James perform it with Conor Oberst and M. Ward. It was excellent.

    General CommentI LOVE IT "It wasn't till I woke up...". Telling a good joke, keeping a job, and realizing a dream..all important but equally only as important as the person telling, holding, or realizing them.
