Forever The Same

Album: The Art of Falling Apart (1983)
  • He's in a world of his own
    He's in a world of his own
    He'd like the time to play with his mind
    He'd like the time to go
    He sees the things that pass him by
    And the things that he never owned
    Everyone has and he has not
    So he lives in a world of his own

    He cries, he lies
    He's cool, he's kind
    He heads out on a Friday night,
    He gets drunk and he starts a fight
    And he loses his mind
    And he loses his sight
    Because times are hard
    And money is tight
    Because he has the pressure
    He has the blame
    Life never changes
    Forever the same

    He's in a world of his own
    He has a child but he doesn't know
    He wanted love, so he loved himself
    And he's at an all-time low
    He's in a world of his own
    He's in a hell of his own
    He watches the clock and watches the time
    Watches life slip by on the assembly line
    And the youth he's never known

    He cries, he lies
    He's cool, he's kind
    He heads out on a Friday night,
    He gets drunk and he starts a fight
    And he loses his mind
    And he loses his sight
    Because times are hard
    And money is tight
    Because he has the pressure
    He has the blame
    Life never changes
    Forever the same

    Forever the same
    Forever the same

Rick Springfield

Rick SpringfieldSongwriter Interviews

Rick has a surprising dark side, a strong feminine side and, in a certain TV show, a naked backside. But he still hasn't found Jessie's Girl.

Gentle Giant

Gentle GiantSongwriter Interviews

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.

Whoa man! Do you know which band came up with these cosmic lyrics?

Peter Lord

Peter LordSongwriter Interviews

You may not recognize his name, but you will certainly recognize Peter Lord's songs. He wrote the bevy of hits from Paula Abdul's second album, Spellbound.

Amanda Palmer

Amanda PalmerSongwriter Interviews

Call us crazy, but we like it when an artist comes around who doesn't mesh with the status quo.

Lou Gramm - "Waiting For A Girl Like You"

Lou Gramm - "Waiting For A Girl Like You"They're Playing My Song

Gramm co-wrote this gorgeous ballad and delivered an inspired vocal, but the song was the beginning of the end of his time with Foreigner.
