"Sarah" as written by and Raycharles Jack Lamontagne....
When we first met we were kids, we were wild, we were insects
And after a while, I grew coarse, I grew cold, I grew reckless
I hold this memory, hold you so close to me, whispered were we always happy
Lately it feels like I'm asleep and I just can't wake up
Pacing the floor, want to call, but I can't so I hang up
Sharing a secret on the train with a lady who's crying has ruined her make up

Now I see just how young, how scared I was
Eyes closed tight, throwing punch after punch at the world
Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same
Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same

Said goodbye to all the places I used to go
Said goodbye to all the faces I used to know
Nothing lasts forever
I guess by now, I should know
I should know

There ain't a thing I can say that will ever repair
And you, who had so much advice, and yet couldn't share
Maybe someday, we will look back at this and we'll smile, but right now I can't bear

Now I see just how young, how scared I was
Eyes closed tight, throwing punch after punch at the world
Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same
Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same

    General CommentThe lyrics on the recorded version are more like this (one or two words near the beginning I'm not certain about):

    When we first met we were kids
    We were wild, we were restless
    But after a while I grew coarse
    I grew cold, I grew reckless

    I hold this memory I pulled you so close to me
    Whispering "Will we always have?"

    Lately it feels like I'm sleeping
    And I just can't wake
    Pacing the floor
    Want to call, but I can't
    So I hang up

    Sharing a seat on the train
    With a lady who's crying
    It's ruin(??) to me

    Now I see just how young and scared I was
    Eyes closed tight, throwing punch after punch at the world
    Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?
    Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?

    Said goodbye to all the places I used to call
    Said goodbye to all the faces I used to know
    Nothing lasts forever, I guess by now I should know
    I should know

    There ain't a thing I can say
    That will ever repair
    And you who had so much advice
    And yet wouldn't share it

    Maybe someday we will look back on this
    And we'll smile
    But now I can't bear it

    Now I see just how young, how scared I was
    Eyes closed tight, throwing punch after punch at the world
    Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?
    Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?

    General CommentYeah, the lyrics I uploaded were from the original version that he was playing live in 2005.

    The version on the album sucks ass. He ruined that song.

    Sharing a seat on the train
    With a lady who's crying
    It's ruined her make-up

    Song ComparisonI think the lyrics are based on a live performance recording:

    When we first met we were kids, we were wild, we were restless
    And after a while, I grew coarse, I grew cold, I grew reckless
    I hold this memory, hold you so close to me, whispered,
    "Will we always last?"
    Lately it feels like I'm asleep and I just can't wake up
    Pacing the floor, want to call, but I can't so I hang up
    Sharing a seat on the train with a lady who's crying has ruined her make up

    Now I see just how young, how scared I was
    Eyes closed tight, throwing punch after punch at the world
    Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?
    Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?

    Said goodbye to all the places that I used to go
    Said goodbye to all the faces that I used to know
    Nothing lasts forever...
    I guess by now, I should know...
    I should know.

    There ain't a thing I can say that will ever repair
    You had so much advice, and yet couldn't share.
    Maybe someday, we will look back on this and we'll smile,
    but right now I can't bear it.

    Now I see just how young, how scared I was,
    Eyes closed tight, throwing punch after punch at the world.
    Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?
    Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?
