Different Songs

Album: Midnight (2019)

  • Fresh out the box, shiny and new
    Played it so much 'til it went out of tune
    I tighten the peg 'til the tension erupts
    Didn't think that I could give up
    The record I spun when I was young
    Spoke to my heart and fit just like a glove
    But now that it's played out, the needle is worn
    Didn't think that I could give up
    What changed? What changed?
    It's more than just our age
    Or how the music tastes, so I'm asking
    "What changed? What changed?"
    'Cause now we're singing different songs
    Forgetting how to sing along together
    When every note comes out so wrong
    It keeps on getting harder to remember
    The melodies or what the lyrics mean
    'Cause now we're singing different songs
    Forgetting how to sing along together
    We once called it love, devolved into lust
    Jealousy speaks out to silence the trust
    We temper our words 'cause we're scared of the truth
    Humming tunes that we can't get through
    When I hear your voice, I hear someone else
    The stress on my heart's getting bad for my health
    So should we admit that we've both had enough?
    Didn't think that we could give up
    So what changed? What changed?
    It's more than just our age
    Or how the music tastes, so I'm asking
    "What changed? What changed?"
    'Cause now we're singing different songs
    Forgetting how to sing along together
    When every note comes out so wrong
    It keeps on getting harder to remember
    The melodies, or what the lyrics mean
    'Cause now we're singing different songs
    Forgetting how to sing along together
    Oh-whoa-oh-oh (oh-whoa-oh-oh)
    Oh-whoa-oh-oh (oh-whoa-oh-oh)
    Oh-whoa-oh-oh (oh-whoa-oh-oh)
    Can't sing along together
    Face to face, so far apart
    We're worlds away from what we were before, before, before
    We started singing different songs (singing different songs)
    Forgetting how to sing along together
    When every note comes out so wrong (comes out so wrong)
    It keeps on getting harder to remember (hey, hey, remember)
    The melodies or what the lyrics mean (lyrics mean)
    'Cause now we're singing different songs
    Forgetting how to sing along together
    Oh-whoa-oh-oh (oh-whoa-oh-oh)
    Oh-whoa-oh-oh (oh-whoa-oh-oh)
    Oh-whoa-oh-oh (oh-whoa-oh-oh)
    Can't sing along together Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
