"Today" as written by William Brice Long and Tommy / James....
Another day it's all the same
Another way to make it sane.
And here we are another breed.
Another train to make it seem all ok.

In and out of all these towns.
Spins me round, it takes me down, takes me down.
Lyin here oh what to do.
Same ole stuff it's the same old tune, the same old
tune

Give it up, give it out,
Give it in, or give it down.
But it's all the same
same old song, it's the same old thing
Cuz it waits, it waits on you.

Go to sleep, go to bed.
Lay it up, put down your head.
The day is o'er and the night has fallen
We'll do it all again, yeah we'll do it all again.

Give it up, give it out,
Give it in, or give it down.
But it's all the same
same old song, it's the same old thing
Cuz it waits, it waits on you.

    General CommentI interpret this song as a sort of... We do the same thing everyday. We don't try to change what's going on or who we are, it's all like a monotonous schedule that we perform everyday.
    I take it this way because a lot of his songs seem to have some sort or universal meaning to them. I feel that it may have something to do with how we act in our everyday lives just doing what we're supposed to, and not trying to change how things are run or who we are as people.

    General Commentreminds me of a middle school kid during the lazy days of summer - he has a crush on some girl who doesn't seem to notice him or something. The chorus makes it seem like no matter what he does, he registers the same response from her (give it up, give it out...same old song, same old tune). At night he goes to sleep, it's another day gone by and the next day he'll just do it all over again to try to get her attention. Cute song. Found it on iTunes.

    General Commenthow come i can't find the full lyrics to this song anywhere? i'm so sick of lyrics sites just copying and pasting what other lyrics sites have.

    the chorus is not complete, in this or any other one i can find. as it says above, the first few lines are:

    "Give it up, give it out,
    Give it in, or give it down.
    But it's all the same
    same old song, it's the same old thing"

    but then there's two additional lines, ending with "a-okay" or something that sounds like "a," and THEN "cus it waits, it waits on you."

    i'd very much like to find the actual lyrics, instead of copied-and-pasted crap. so if anyone knows it, please help. i'll keep thinkin too
