"Never Be The Same" as written by Mike Seminari, C. Todd Nielsen, Jasen Rauch, Rob Graves and Jason Mcarthur....
I know you, who are you now?
Look into my eyes if you can't remember.
Do you remember, oh?

I can see, I can still find
You're the only voice my heart can recognize
But I can't hear you now, yeah.

I'll never be the same
I'm caught inside the memories, the promises
Are yesterdays and I belong to you.
I just can't walk away
'cause after loving you
I can never be the same.

And how can I pretend I've never known you?
Like it was all a dream, no.
I know I'll never forget
The way I always felt with you beside me
And how you loved me then, yeah.

I'll never be the same
I'm caught inside the memories, the promises
Are yesterdays and I belong to you.
I just can't walk away
'cause after loving you
I can never be the same.

You led me here,
Then I watched you disappear.
You left this emptiness inside
And I can't turn back time
No, stay!
Nothing compares to you.
Nothing compares to you.
I can't let you go,
Can't let you go.
I can't let go.

I'll never be the same,
Not after loving you,
Not after loving you, no.

I'll never be the same
I'm caught inside the memories, the promises
Are yesterdays and I belong to you.
I just can't walk away
'cause after loving you
I can never be the same.

I can never be the same.
I will never be the same.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
I just can't walk away.
No, I can't walk away from you.

    Song MeaningEpitomizing the “innocence” side of the album, “Never Be the Same” naturally overflows with upbeat energy, optimism, and a chorus that can’t be forgotten. “On the surface, it’s about a relationship that changes you forever,” says singer Michaei Barnes, whose soothing vocal performance resonates with depth and passion. In its deeper subtexts, the song is about standing in the crossroads between the past and the future, fighting forward without forgetting battles past. “Whether it’s a recovered addict looking back on that which once controlled him or a person simply reflecting on something lost or nearly lost, the song is about those issues that make up the chemistry of who you are,” explains guitarist-songwriter Jasen Rauch. “You've overcome it and it’s no longer a part of your life, but if you hadn’t gone through it, you wouldn’t be who you are today.”

    General CommentI think that this song is talking about Jesus's love for us. He thinks that god has left him but he still loves god and wnats him back.

    My InterpretationThis simply could be about a child trying to reconnect with a parent that has left or been out of there life for long time.

    General CommentYou cant forget about your past. Your past, whatever that might be, is what has gotten you here.
    That past can be negative or positive. If it's negative, if you wouldnt have gone through your it
    and hadnt overcome it, you wouldnt be where you are today. If it's positive, you dont know how you made it through life without it but your so glad its here now.

    Either way, its about progressively moving forward. Dont look back in regret, but always remember
    your past because without it, you wouldnt know where you are going.

    MemoryI tend not to normally care what songs are about, sometimes it is interesting how song lyrics speak to you as a person, and click with memories of your past.

    This sings to me because there was someone who I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. I wanted to give everything to her.
    But she left, ended up not feeling the same about the relationship, and that was that.

    My point is, my relationship with her, and the break up, and the pain that came with it for months after changed me.
    Not only that, while I'm finally over her, I'll still love her... and part of me will still want her, but still, I'll move on, having changed, hopefully for the better. :)

    Song MeaningThis song is one of my favorites..as is the band.
    It's talking about someones past love kind of making their way back into the others life..or at least trying to.
    "I know you, who are you now. look into my eyes if you can't remember..Do you remember?"
    This song helped me with a hard sitiuation that I went thru recently and did a lot for me.

    General Commentgood song. love the end of RED's songs.

    i think it means that when you breakup with someone you can't just forget about it and walk away. your always going to have a place for them. and how you will always miss the times when you were together.
    regret nothing.

    General CommentI think this song is amazing mostly because its totaly my feeling in song form. I want to take christian interpritation but all I can think of is how it hit home in the relationship way. it says to me that you'll never forget that person you were with even if you've both moved on. Because you never stop loving them. I don't care what who you are or what you say. But there's forvere feelings for them.

    General CommentI cry everytime I listen to this song. I think of New Moon for some reason too.
    I know it's a Christian song but I can't help but think how his love has left him in some way. The same with Bella and Edward. He left her suddenly (I'm caught inside memories, the promises, our yesterdays when I belonged to you) She can't stop thinking about him, and she hears his voice wherever she goes. She definitely will "Never Be the Same" without him. ♥
