No matter where you been
Those people try to do you in
Every day till dawn
There's some thievin' goin' on

Oh no, it hurts me so
Just the same old thing
Just the same old thing
No matter how much love you try to bring
It's just the same old thing

You got a callous heart
From being torn apart
Now you labor every day
Your love life drifts away

Oh no, it hurts me so
Just the same old thing
Just the same old thing
No matter how much love you try to bring
It's just the same old thing

    General CommentLove the woodwind on this as well.

    Can anyone hear a hint of Led Zeppelin's "The Ocean" in the solo of this?

    (Compare 1:51 of The Ocean to Same Old Thing from 2:13).

    General CommentSeems to me this song is about someone who is tired of giving out so much love and only getting betrayed in return.
