"The Same Thing" as written by Keyshia M. Cole, C. Brown and Antonio Rey....
Open your eyes
You've been left
Open your heart
Cause you know best

Pull close the ones that leave you alone
Welcome home'

Write down those words you wanted to hear
Compliments yea the messages is coming clear
Spend my days contemplating
Kill to buy you a ring
Ain't love a funny thing'

I knew there was something wrong
I was just too scared to say it
I knew one day you'd finally see
The monster was me

Cause I was so busy sayin' that I was better
You're falling apart and I was barely together
Breaking up your past, did you feel ashamed'
Well I was doing the same things
My whole life you said I wouldn't forget it
And God damn right you know I still don't regret it
Breaking up your past, did you feel ashamed'
Well I was doin' the same things

Spending nights telling lies to anyone who believes
Spending days writing plays for your drama king
Pull them close so they all feel sorry for you (For you)

Are you sick of all those things they thought you should be
What you want, what you hope, what you think you need
Its what I give, its what I got, that's what I kept for me
Ain't hurt a funny thing'

I knew there was something wrong
I was just too scared to say it
I knew one day you'd finally see
The monster was me

Cause I was so busy sayin' that I was better
You're falling apart and I was barely together
Breaking up your past, did you feel ashamed'
Well I was doing the same things
My whole life you said I wouldn't forget it
And God damn right you know I still don't regret it
Breaking up your past, did you feel ashamed'
Well I was doin' the same things

So hard to be right when everything you do is wrong
Singing out its getting harder to breathe
Starting over when you thought that you were done (I'm done)
Selling out so that you know it all feels the same
When there's no one left there's just you to blame
Give me a sign, piece of mind, a glimmer of truth
I'll shut it down with just a moment left cause'

Cause I was so busy sayin' that I was better
You're falling apart and I was barely together
Breaking up your past, did you feel ashamed'
Well I was doing the same things
My whole life you said I wouldn't forget it
And God damn right you know I still don't regret it
Breaking up your past, did you feel ashamed'
Well I was doin' the same things

So hard to be right when everything you do is wrong
(Well I was doin' the same things)
Selling out so that you know it all feels the same
(Well I was doin' the same thing.)

My whole life you said I wouldn't forget it
And God damn right you know I still don't regret it
Breaking up your past, did you feel ashamed'
Well I was doin' the same things

    General CommentThis is the best new song from one less reason. I think it's about a guy finally saying he was the reason they broke up.

    General CommentYeah, this is definitely my favourite One Less Reason song.

    "Cause I was so busy saying that i was better
    You were falling apart and I was barely together"
    I feel like it was like, he felt he wasn't the reason the relationship gradually declined, but the more he thought about it he realised that both him and her both contributed evenly. He was in the same boat as she was and he was too busy putting on a tough act, while really he was falling apart inside he just didn't show it.
