"Ever the Same" as written by and Robert Kelly Thomas....
We were drawn from the weeds
We were brave like soldiers
Falling down under the pale moonlight
You were holding to me
Like a someone broken
And I couldn't tell you, but I'm telling you now

Just let me hold you while you're falling apart
Just let me hold you so we both fall down

Fall on me
Tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you forever in me
Ever the same

We would stand in the wind
We were free like water
Flowing down
Under the warmth of the sun
Now it's cold, and we're scared
And we've both been shaken
Look at us
Man, this doesn't need to be the end

Just let me hold you while you're falling apart
Just let me hold you so we both fall down

Fall on me, tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same
Call on me
I'll be there for you, and you'll be there for me
Forever it's you
Forever in me
Ever the same

You may need me there
To carry all your weight
But you're no burden I assure
You tide me over
With a warmth I'll not forget
But I can only give you love

    General CommentI read a recent article at the time of the albums release where Rob said he wrote this for his wife during a time when she had a 'lingering illness'. It didn't describe the illness but I think it is a very pretty song that shows he wanted her to know that he was going through this with her and he'd be right by her side during it all.

    General CommentI think that the song tells us that life is hard sometimes and that you should allow somebody to share the pain with you when you are in dire need of help or assistence. he is showing that there are people in your life that would be able to assuage your miseries and save you from oblivion.

    General CommentThe illness is some kind of rare immune system disease os some sort. I believe Mari is alright now, but I have to imagine it was a hard point for both Rob and Mari. Man, first Rob's mother gets sick and spawns a great song, then Rob's wife gets sick and spawns a great song. Poor Rob. But this is a beautiful song, and it gives hope that Rob could have more solo success. Maybe his softening isn't a bad thing?

    General CommentI can see how it relates to a loved one being sick. The first time I heard this song, I immediately thought of my Mother, who has Alzheimers. Its a great song!!! By the way, Rob Thomas's new album is awesome.
