Go on to the street to the cars in the pouring rain
Go on to the bus that left us in the dust and the flames
And when the son meets the father
It'll be something smarter for the pain
But you will always be the same
You will always be the same

Go on little girl, feet twirl, go and make him smile
Go on like the rumbling drums of the march of time
And when the son meets the dad
It'll be pretty bad for the pain
But you'll always be the same
You will always be the same
You will always be the same

Go on to the ones with the smoking guns in the heat
Go on to the wars we won, they came home, they made up
And when the father meets the son,
And the blood makes us better than the gain
You will always be the same

    General CommentThis is definately one of my favorite Ryan Adams songs. It's simple yet creative and beautiful at the same time. This song, to me, is a song of hope and reasurrance. It seems as though he's run into some trouble in a certain relationship. What he's basically saying is that whatever happens, in the end she'll still be the same, wonderful girl he's always known.

    General CommentI remember when I first heard this song on Demolition a few years ago. From the simple yet powerful lyrics to the background rolling bassline make this one of his greatest pieces. I just graduated from university not to long ago, and this song really helped me get through the new changes in my life.

    Rock on, Mr Adams.

    General CommentThis song was written about Beth Orton, a musician Ryan worked with around 2002, along with Carrie Hamilton, who contributed to a few songs on "Demolition". He says this song was to Beth commenting on whatever happened, she'd always mean the same to him.

    General CommentFrom Ryan in 2002, "The best song ever written about Beth Orton. And I've written several. I was in Stockholm on tour with her, straight after we'd recorded 'Brown Sugar' for the 'Uncut' Rolling Stones CD. I recorded nine songs in one sessionwhile we were there and this was one of them. I was listening to Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell and a lot of stuff like that. I think the sentiment is lovely. What I was saying was that the world can get fucked up as hell, but you will always mean the same thing to me."
