Still the Same

Still the Same is the first single off my debut EP coming out in March 2022. The lyrics were actually inspired by a book I read where the main character becomes immortal and lives many different lives but remains the same person on the inside. She watches the people she loves grow and change – I wanted to capture this feeling and retell the story in my own way. Featuring a 2000’s indie-pop sound, the song Still the Same will take listeners back to the Y2K era, and tells a familiar story of a person seeing an old lover after a long passage of time. Dramatic strings, electric guitar and piano back the emotional vocal lines — communicating the feeling one has when realising just how fast time goes by, and how different people are after going through their own personal growth.

Lyrics:

Your hair looks longer, you dyed it brown. 

You seem like you’re taller, but I watch from a distance now. 

But you’ve still got that same frown 

I recognised you walking past that old cafe, 

And I saw you wave, 

But I looked away, oh it’s so cliche.  

But I won’t be the first to say…  

 

“Hey, it’s been a while, how’ve you been? Are you married?  

Are you happy with her, like how you said you’d be with me?”  

Wish I wasn’t too shame to say,  

“You’ve changed so much, are you still the same?”  Maybe it’s me, I’m just making a scene.  

We’re old friends, but it’s so hard to act like me.  

Cause I know we’ve grown worlds away, 

I’ve changed so much, but I swear I’m still the same.  

 

Mm, I’ve changed but I’m still the same.  

 

Maybe we’re soulmates but stuck in time.  

A loophole of nothing, 

But I’ll see you in another life…  

Where we don’t have to say goodbye until it’s time.  

For now though, We can’t stick around being close,  But just not enough to say I’m the one you love…  And it hurts but life is tough. 

 

“Hey, it’s been a while, how’ve you been? Are you married?  

Are you happy with her, like how you said you’d be with me?”

Wish I wasn’t too shame to say, 

“You’ve changed so much, are you still the same?”  Maybe it’s me, I’m just making a scene.  

We’re old friends, but it’s so hard to act like me.  

Cause I know we’ve grown worlds away,  

I’ve changed so much, but I swear I’m still the same.  

 

Oh, maybe that’s the price you pay for love and time,  When you combine two souls,  And split them apart. 

Oh-oh 

Oh, maybe that’s the price you pay for love and time,  When you combine two souls,  And split them apart. 

 

“Hey, it’s been a while, how’ve you been? Are you married? 

Are you happy with her, like how you said you’d be with me?”  

Wish I wasn’t too shame to say,  

“You’ve changed so much, are you still the same?”  Maybe it’s me, I’m just making a scene.  

We’re old friends, but it’s so hard to act like me.  

Cause I know we’ve grown worlds away,  

I’ve changed so much, but I swear I’m still the same
