Just the Same

Delta Spirit

And I think back to the night we met
We weren't looking for love
Just looking for a friend
And you drove me home with a beer between your legs
You said you hated your life and you wanted to get away
And I loved you just the same

It was 4AM and you parked your car
And I had no intention of taking it too far
But you reached out your hand
Then I pushed it away
And I leaned over your seat and I kissed you anyway
And you kissed me back like you had something to prove
Well it was a fleeting moment, but it felt so true
And I loved you just the same

And you flew out to see me again
Were we gonna be lovers?
Or just be friends?
And I remember walking around Central Park
Couple of glasses of wine before it got dark
It was after dinner that I kissed you again
And I still know now what I knew back then
That I love you just the same

And you escaped to be with me
You were so young and I was so naive
And the plan was to take our time
But then everything changed and we jumped in blind
And I remember these beautiful times
We were young and in love and felt so alive
And I love you just the same

When you'd come home drunk and you could barely stand
And I'd strip your clothes off and I'd hold your hand
Then I'd walk you to bed 'cause you could barely see
And we'd lie down 'til you fell asleep
And I love you just the same

And the hardest part is your broken past
And it breaks my heart for the shadow it casts
And I'd kill 'em if I could, if you'd just say the word
But would that be enough for all the pain and hurt?
And I wonder if there's anything I can do or say
But sometimes what's done cannot be changed
But I love you just the same

And I lie in bed and I can't stop my mind
From thinking of us and what we left behind
And I know there's nothing that we can do
Until you forgive me and I forgive you
But all I want is you to change your mind
And we could start again, maybe with a little time?
We could love each other just the same
We could love each other just the same
