"Nothing Is The Same" as written by and Mark Farner....
When I was feeling 'bout sixteen, I never had no idea.
Listen to me if you want to know what I mean, your expression will let me see.
I never knew what I was looking for, I never had the time.
And now that time has opened up my door, now I'm looking forward just to see what, just what's mine.

When I was feeling 'bout eighteen, it's then when I began to see.
No matter how hard you push on the door, it won't open without the key.
Opportunity only knocks once, if you shut it out it's a sin.
And when something keeps right on poundin', then, my friend, you'd better let it in.

Now I feel just a little bit old and, sadness fills my brain.
I can flash to future years and nothing is the same.
Nothing is the same.
Nothing is the same.
Nothing is the same.

    General CommentThis is song really hits because at the time I am 16.

    "When I was feeling 'bout sixteen, I never had no idea.
    Listen to me if you want to know what I mean, your expression will let me see.
    I never knew what I was looking for, I never had the time.
    And now that time has opened up my door, now I'm looking forward just to see what, just what's mine."

    Up until this point I never really had any goals or purpose in my life until I found love. This song just hits me right in the heart.

    General CommentOne of my favorites from GFR, I believe this one doesnt mean to be complex. Its about how your opinions and your goals change when you get older. I certainly changed a lot my points of view and goals.
