The Same Old Story
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Now it's the same old story And the same old stage Though the cast is different And you're looking at a different page All the lines seem familiar As you try to memorize your part And when you finally meet the lady You know she's gonna break your heart. Now it's the same old story Though you approach it from a different place And the lady is lovely She wears such a beautiful face And though you try hard to stop it You feel the hopeless situation start You're in love with the lady And you know she's gonna break your heart. It's the same old story Just read between the lines Your heart will end up broken And you'll tell yourself that love is just a state of mind. Well it's the same old story And you know just how it's gonna end You're gonna wind up losing So there's no reason to pretend But you go through the motions And you tell her that you'll never part You say your love will last forever But you know she's gonna break your heart. And though you try hard to stop it You feel the hopeless situation start You're in love with the lady And you know she's gonna break your heart Yea, you know she's gonna break your heart You know she's gonna break your heart You know she's gonna break your heart. It's the same old story You tell her that you'll never, never part You're in love with the lady But you know she's gonna break your heart. It's the same old story I do, I do, I do remember all those lonely nights Sitting and thinking on a cold and empty stage It's the same old story And the same old stage.
