Same Old You

Album: Four the Record (2011)
  • So here you are
    In your borrowed car
    Kicking rocks around
    Looking at your shoes
    It's the same old you

    Tell me where you been
    And where you're going to
    Where were you last night
    Boy listen up when I'm talking to you
    It's the same old you

    Another lonely night
    With that same old whiskey morning

    It's the same old you
    When you get to drinking
    The same old you
    When you're on the town
    The same old you
    In church on Sunday
    Getting high when the sun goes down

    Well this time I done some thinking
    And I think I'm done with you
    Cause until I get to leaving
    It's just the same old me too

    Well your mama's gonna cry her eyes
    There ain't gonna be no wedding day
    What's she gonna say?
    When I tell her how I had no choice
    The same old you couldn't even raise your voice
    And ask me to stay
    I wouldn't anyway

    So you can keep your ring
    And I'll keep my daddy's name

    It's the same old you
    When you get to drinking
    The same old you
    When you're on the town
    The same old you
    In church on Sunday
    Getting high when the sun goes down

    This time I done some thinking
    And I think I'm done with you
    Cause until I get to leaving
    It's just the same old me too

    Cause until I get to leaving
    It's just the same old me too Writer/s: BRANDI M. CARLILE
