Not The Same Lyrics

Artist: Ben Folds
Album: Rockin' The Suburbs

You took a trip and climbed a tree
At Robert Sledge's party
And there you stayed 'till morning came
And you were not the same after that

You gave your life to Jesus Christ
And after all your friends went home
You came down, you looked around
And you were not the same after that

(Ahhh ahhh)
You were not the same after that
(Ahhh ahhh)
You were not the same after that

You see 'em drop like flies from the bright sunny skies
They come knocking at your door with this look in their eyes
You've got one good trick and you're hanging on you're hanging on...
To it

You took the word and made it heard
And eased the people's pain and for that
You were idolised, immortalised
And you were not the same after that

Walking tall, you'd bought it all
And you were not the same after that
Till someone died on the waterslide
And you were not the same after that

You see 'em drop like flies from the bright sunny skies
They come knocking at your door with this look in their eyes
You've got one good trick and you're hanging on you're hanging on to it

(ooh ooh ooh ooh)
(YOU WERE NOT THE SAME!)
(ooh ooh ooh ooh)

You see 'em drop like flies from the bright sunny skies
They come knocking at your door with this look in their eyes
You've got one good trick and you're hanging on
you're hanging on:

You're hanging on:
You're hanging on:

Simply beautiful. Saw Ben do this last night in Rochester, and the beauty of the audience's harmony part (which he taught in like 60 seconds before starting the song) was like nothing I've ever heard at a concert. And as usual Ben's got some heavy lyrics buried in the melodies here. He's a one-of-a-kind musician.

According to Folds, "Not the Same" is based on a true story of a person he knew who, under the influence of LSD, climbed a tree at a party, stayed in the tree overnight, and when he came down the next morning was a born-again Christian.[1]

Just when you thought nobody could do it quite as good as Ben does it himself... the lead singer in this arrangement has a heart-melting voice! What a beautiful start to a fantastic album.

Amo este tema ♥

The ensemble that I'm in is doing this as a warm-up and it's so much fun!
by Den C Ti on 5/17/2012 9:23am
This song was perfect.
Ben's voice had this shy and innocent appeal and it was fun for the audience too.
It's such a catchy song that just warms you up all over.

Believe it or Not, The Weather Channel played Annie Waits during the sever thunderstorm warning. That lead me to this CD , Why am I finding out about it just now? and from the Weather Channel ? A musical Masterpeice.
