"Never Be The Same Again" as written by Rhett Lawrence, Melanie Chisolm, Paul Cruz, Lisa Lopes and Lorenzo Martin....
Come on. Ooh, yeah.
Never be the same again.

I call you up whenever things go wrong.
You're always there. You are my shoulder to cry on.
I can't believe it took me quite so long.
To take the forbidden step.
Is this something that I might regret?

(Come on, come on)
Nothing ventured nothing gained.
(You are the one)
A lonely heart that can't be tamed.
(Come on, come on)
I'm hoping that you feel the same.
This is something that I can't forget.

I thought that we would just be friends.
Things will never be the same again.
It's just the beginning it's not the end.
Things will never be the same again.
It's not a secret anymore.
Now we've opened up the door.
Starting tonight and from now on.
We'll never, never be the same again.
Never be the same again.

Now I know that we were close before.
I'm glad I realised I need you so much more.
And I don't care what everyone will say.
It's about you and me.
And we'll never be the same again.

I thought that we would just be friends (oh yeah).
Things will never be the same again. (Never be the same again)
It's just the beginning it's not the end. (We've only just begun)
Things will never be the same again.
It's not a secret anymore.
Now we've opened up the door. (Opened up the door)
Starting tonight and from now on.
We'll never, never be the same again.
Never be the same again.

Nite and day.
Black beach sand to red clay.
The US to UK, NYC to LA.
From sidewalks to highways.
See it'll never be the same again.
What I'm sayin'
My mind frame never changed 'til you came rearranged.

But sometimes it seems completely forbidden.
To discover those feelings that we kept so well hidden.
Where there's no competition.
And you render my condition.
Though improbable it's not impossible.
For a love that could be unstoppable.

But wait.
A fine line's between fate and destiny.
Do you believe in the things that were just meant to be?
When you tell me the stories of your quest for me.
Picturesque is the picture you paint effortlessly.

And as our energies mix and begin to multiply.
Everyday situations, they start to simplify.
So things will never be the same between you and I.
We intertwined our life forces and now we're unified.

I thought that we would just be friends.
Things will never be the same again.
It's just the beginning it's not the end.
Things will never be the same again.
It's not a secret anymore.
Now we've opened up the door.
Starting tonight and from now on.
We'll never, never be the same again.

(Come on, come on)
Things will never be the same again.
(You are the one)
Never be the same again.
It's not a secret anymore.
We'll never be the same again.
It's not a secret anymore.
We'll never be the same again.
Never be the same again.
Never be the same again.
Never be the same again.
Never be the same again.

    General Commentoh yes.... I think everyone experiences things like that at least once... I also fell in love with my best friend once... ahem... best friend at that time... of course things changed after some things went on between us and everything changed after we crossed this "border"... I don't know, but I think I wouldn't do it again...

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs of all time. It is the song shared by myself and one of my best friends. We have been falling apart over the years, and I bought the CD import single for her as a Christmas present. It's just too bad that Left Eye is not with us anymore. I'm a huge fan of TLC as well.

    General CommentI can relate to this song so much as well, I guess we've all have been there. But my situation was a little different, since we started flirting since the day we met and we kissed and everything, but in a couple of months it did naturally evolve into something else and become only good, soooo close friends. We were like that for like two years and a half!!! until we separated for a while...and then when we got close again I could see something different in him...and once he invited me over to his house like he did a million time before and he had apparently prepared it all to make me fall for him, and he kissed me again and I just couldn't fight it. But, exactly like this song portraits it, it was NEVER the same again...the relationship you used to have either turns into "real love", or you grow more and more apart. For me, he remains the image of my first lovemaking, and for a while I escaped him, and it all simply became strange between us. He started to see me like "another girl on his list" and I could never change -or wanted to change- that, once you get that point, you can't go back...so think deeply about it before you do it...
    The sad part is that I lost (though I still speak to him, and he still thinks of me as a friend in a way -or I hope so-) my closest person...but maybe it just had to happened. But don't get sex come between you and a friend you care for...If then you don't end up as a close you will end up confused...and a little bit used as well.

    "Is this something that I might regret?"

    So this song remains one of the closest to me, and I remember listening to it while sunk within confusion...and I am still are.

    General Commentwell, i see none of you have consider the lesbian meaning this song carries.. i mean, check these parts:

    ''And I dont care what everyone will say
    Its about you and me''

    it sounded so obvious for me.. but i guess i might be wrong...

    i thought i could be a story about two best friends (girls) and one of them falls for the other and later realises her friend is in love with her too...

    ''Its not a secret anymore
    Now weve opened up the door''

    - it's not a secret anymore-> they have revealed their feelings to each other

    -Now weve opened up the door -> it sounds like coming out of the closet!

    and the most obvious part is as i said before:

    ''And I dont care what everyone will say
    Its about you and me''

    i mean, what could be wrong if you start dating your best friend, i know my mother would be pleased!!!!
    and out friends also the same, like the perfect ending for a relationship that started like friends... BUT NO, she says that she doesnt care what everyone will say, that means people will actually have opinions and critics, and no good ones, as she doesnt care, i think i would care for good opinions...

    that's what i thought, i just registered to share my opinion,,, thats it
