Well, I've been going through the motions
Wonder if anyone can see
That I been looking for something
Have you been looking for me

I ain't the same no more
In fact I have changed from before
No, you ain't gonna find me
Oh no, cause I'm not who I used to be

Well, I used to be a little girl
Just a smiling, feeling free
I wasn't worried bout nobody
Nobody worried bout me

But, I ain't the same no more
You'll find I have changed from before
No, you ain't gonna find me
Cause I ain't who I used to be

I said I'd never grow old
I can't remember how that used to be
I find myself without the power
I find myself without the glory

Listen! I ain't the same no more
You'll find I have changed from before
You ain't gonna find me
Oh no, cause I'm not who I used to be
Oh, no, no, I ain't who I used to be
Oh, no, no, I ain't who I used to be
Oh, no...

    General CommentI love this song. First poster is right.. it's obvious what the song is trying to say. It holds a similar meaning for me. After being diagnosed with a life altering disease in my early 20's - I changed and started looking at life differently. Suddenly the people I surrounded myself with.. they just didn't make sense to me anymore and I didn't make sense to them. The ideals I held close growing up weren't as important. I opened my mind and found that life has a lot of gray areas. And that's okay. I found new meaning in life... this song is awesome. That's just what it means to me. All music is subjective! Brittney, the lead singer, reminds me of Janis. She's not scared to get all ugly in the face with it - it's awesome... The notes that she sings don't even have to be perfect because you're not listening to that.. you're listening to the feeling behind them.

    MemorySaw them in Portland recently. Britney's energy is absolutely insane... the woman is an amazing lead singer. She made me cry a few times, it felt like she took the deepest of my feelings and exposed them to myself and it was the most refreshing feeling in the world. The crowd was amazing too, everyone was there to see and enjoy this band. Excited to see them again in July!

    My InterpretationAnother great song. I think it's pretty obvious this song is about growing up and losing the immortal feeling you have when you're young.
