Love Remains The Same

Album: Wanderlust (2008)
Charted: 27
  • A thousand times I've seen you standing
    Gravity like lunar landing
    You make me wanna run till I find you
    I shut the world away from here
    Drift to you, you're all I hear
    As everything we know fades to black

    Half the time the world is ending
    Truth is I am done pretending

    I, never thought that I
    Had anymore to give
    You're pushing me so far
    Here I am without you
    Drink, to all that we have lost
    Mistakes we have made
    Everything will change
    But, love remains the same

    Find a place where we escape
    Take you with me for a space
    The city bus sounds just like a fridge
    I walk the streets through seven bars
    I have to find just where you are
    The faces seem to blur
    They're all the same

    Half the time the world is ending
    Truth is I am done pretending

    I, never thought that I
    Had anymore to give
    You're pushing me so far
    Here I am without you
    Drink, to all that we have lost
    Mistakes we have made
    Everything will change
    But, love remains the same

    So much more to say
    So much to be done
    Don't you trick me now
    We shall overcome
    So all that's left is praying

    But we, should have had the sun
    We could have been inside
    Instead we're over here

    Half the time the world is ending
    Truth is I am done pretending
    Too much time too long defending
    You and I are done pretending

    I, never thought that I
    Had anymore to give
    You're pushing me so far
    Here I am without you
    Drink, to all that we have lost
    Mistakes we have made
    Everything will change
    Everything will change

    I, oh I,
    I wish this could last forever
    I, oh I,
    as if we could last forever

  • Sarah from Norfolk, Vathis song was actually written about me and the songwriter of the lyrics wrote it at the point where he gave up on trying to win my love and win me from my fiancee. although we both have moved on and have families now, our love for each other still remains the same
  • D from Edmonton, AbThis song really makes me think of my boyfriend (cliche right?) but it really fits our situation. He is in the military, and whenever he goes on tour(or even on training for a month) it just really makes me think of him and wonder when I can see him or even when the next time I'll be able to hear his voice is.
  • Misael "smiley" from San Benito, Texas, TxI must have been distracted when you first shared this song. It wasn't until recently that I really payed attention to the words and realized it hit a nerve and I realized the song is all about what happened to us while we were going through our painful divorce. I just had to dissect it and explore the feelings I have had for the last few years. My private enterpretation of the song is in caps below. All these things I have felt and lived, some even still. I share them with you hoping to win your understanding only.

    Love Remains The Same- My Personal Interpretation

    Misael "Smiley" Garcia 11-10-08



    A thousand times i've seen you standing (I PICTURE YOU EVERYWHERE I GO)
    gravity like a lunar landing (YET YOU DISAPPEAR LIKE GRAVITY THAT CAN'T BE SEEN)

    make me want to run till i find you(MY MIND RUNS CRAZY LOOKING TO FIND YOU)
    shut the world away from here, drift to you, you're all i hear(FORGET ABOUT EVERYTHING, LET MY EMOTIONS LEAD ME TO YOUR VOICE AS I DAYDREAM THAT YOU CALL ME LIKE YOU DID SO MANY TIMES IN MY LIFE, MY EAR WAS TRAINED TO HEAR YOUR VOICE)

    everything we know fades to black(EVERYTHING THAT IS FAMILIAR TO OUR ORDINARY WORLD FADED TO BLACK AS IN THE END OF A SCENE)

    half the time the world is ending, truth is i am done pretending(HALF THE TIME IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AND THE SIMPLEST THINGS OVERWHELM ME WHEN I AM WITHOUT YOU, I FEEL MY OWN MORTALITY IS BEFORE ME, THE TRUTH IS I HAVE TO ADMIT AND I AM RESOLVED TO WHAT'S HAPPENED TO US AND HOW IT'S CAUSED ME TO LOSE MYSELF.

    i never thought that i had any more to give, pushing me so far here i am without you(I FELT SO TAKEN FOR GRANTED, YOU PUSHED ME TO LIMITS I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD GO, LIMITS THAT SCARED ME BEYOND MY GREATEST FEARS! AND THE GREATEST FEAR IS THAT I STAND ALONE TO FACE THEM, WITHOUT MY BEST FRIEND!

    drink to all that we have lost, mistakes that we have made(DRINK AS IF TO CELEBRATE , UNDERSTANDING OUR GREAT LOSS AND ACCEPTING THAT IT'S OVER, TO THE FACT WE HURT EACH OTHER AND UNDERSTANDING HOW)

    everything will change, love remains the same(EVEN THOUGH EVERYTHING IN OUR LIVES WILL CHANGE, AND WE ARE NO LONGER ARE TOGETHER, OUR LOVE WILL REMAIN THE SAME)

    find a place where we escape(AS I DRIVE AND THINK OF YOU, MEMORIES OF BED AND BREAKFASTS, VACATIONS, AND SPECIAL PLACES WE WENT, OR IN A CORNER OF A BAR, NO ONE TALKING JUST ALONE SEEING PICTURES IN MY MIND)

    take you with me for a space(IN MY MIND, I STILL TAKE YOU PLACES TO KEEP YOUR MEMORY ALIVE IN MY HEART)

    a city bus that sounds just like a fridge(NOTHING MAKES SENSE ANYMORE, LIFE'S A BLUR AND THE PAIN AND CONFUSION MAKE ME SEE THINGS SO DIFFERENT)
    walk the streets through seven bars(WENT FROM BAR TO BAR LOOKING TO FILL THE VOID AND BECAUSE ACCEPTANCE WAS EASIEST TO FIND THERE)

    i had to find just out where you are(I HAD TO UNDERSTAND HOW YOU FELT AND WHERE YOU FIND YOURSELF WITHOUT ME)

    the faces seem to blur they're all the same(NO MATTER WHO I SAW, I SAW TRACES OF YOU IN EVERYONE I SAW, NO USE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO'S NO LONGER THERE.)

    half the time the world is ending, truth is i am done pretending(HALF THE TIME IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AND THE SIMPLEST THINGS OVERWHELM ME WHEN I AM WITHOUT YOU, I FEEL MY OWN MORTALITY IS BEFORE ME, THE TRUTH IS I HAVE TO ADMIT AND I AM RESOLVED TO WHAT'S HAPPENED TO US AND HOW IT'S CAUSED ME TO LOSE MYSELF.


    i never thought that i had any more to give you're pushing me so far here i am without you I FELT SO TAKEN FOR GRANTED, YOU PUSHED ME TO LIMITS I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD GO, LIMITS THAT SCARED ME BEYOND MY GREATEST FEARS! AND THE GREATEST FEAR IS THAT I STAND ALONE TO FACE THEM, WITHOUT MY BEST FRIEND!

    drink to all that we have lost, mistakes that we have made(DRINK AS IF TO CELEBRATE , UNDERSTANDING OUR GREAT LOSS AND ACCEPTING THAT IT'S OVER, TO THE FACT WE HURT EACH OTHER AND UNDERSTANDING HOW)

    everything will change, love remains the same(EVEN THOUGH EVERYTHING IN OUR LIVES WILL CHANGE, AND WE ARE NO LONGER ARE TOGETHER, OUR LOVE WILL REMAIN THE SAME)

    so much more to say, so much to be done (I NEVER SAID THE RIGHT WORDS OR COULD I EVER SAY ENOUGH TO GET YOU TO UNDERSTAND MY HEART)

    don't you trick me out, we shall overcome (DON'T PLAY ANYMORE GAMES WITH MY HEART, WITHOUT EACH OTHER, OUR HEARTS WILL FIND A WAY TO OVERCOME IN THE END)



    cause our love stays ablaze (BECAUSE OUR LOVE WILL BURN FOREVER)



    we should have had the sun (WE SHOULD HAVE NEVER LOST THE WARMTH BETWEEN US)
    could have been inside (INSIDE EACH OTHERS LIVES)
    instead we're over here (INSTEAD OF ALL ALONE)


    half the time the world is ending, truth is i am done pretending (HALF THE TIME IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AND THE SIMPLEST THINGS OVERWHELM ME WHEN I AM WITHOUT YOU, I FEEL MY OWN MORTALITY IS BEFORE ME, THE TRUTH IS I HAVE TO ADMIT AND I AM RESOLVED TO WHAT'S HAPPENED TO US AND HOW IT'S CAUSED ME TO LOSE MYSELF).

    too much time to love defending, you and i are done pretending (WE WASTED TO MUCH TIME WE SHOULD HAVE SPENT LOVING EACH OTHER, DEFENDING OUR OWN HEART AND FEELINGS, YET WE NEEDED TO ADMIT WE NEVER HAD TO DEFEND THEM TO EACH OTHER)

    i never thought that i had any more to give
    you're pushing me so far here i am without you (I FELT SO TAKEN FOR GRANTED, YOU PUSHED ME TO LIMITS I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD GO, LIMITS THAT SCARED ME BEYOND MY GREATEST FEARS! AND THE GREATEST FEAR IS THAT I STAND ALONE TO FACE THEM, WITHOUT MY BEST FRIEND!)

    drink to all that we have lost, mistakes that we have made (DRINK AS IF TO CELEBRATE , UNDERSTANDING OUR GREAT LOSS AND ACCEPTING THAT IT'S OVER, TO THE FACT WE HURT EACH OTHER AND UNDERSTANDING HOW)

    everything will change, everything will change(THE PAIN WILL GO AWAY, THE PAIN WILL GO AWAY!)

  • Heather from Quincy, IlI feel like this is a song about a person in love that has to leave, not knowing if they will ever be able to be with thier true love again(Prison) , but realizing what could have been. So sad!!
