Have you ever heard the saying

"You can't step into the same river twice."

It's always moving...changing

I hope that it's alright

That the girl you thought you knew

Has changed overnight

There was nothing you could do

She's already out of sight


I'm not the same girl, you loved yesterday

Watch as pieces of me slowly die away

And the colors you're used to seeing slowly fade to gray

Don't be surprised if you find yourself in disarray

I'm not the same girl you knew... not the same girl you loved yesterday.


I've watched love fall apart

They crawl away with broken hearts

In my opinion they were doomed from the start.

People change like the seasons

There's never really any reasons

Why they come and why they go

They just tend to break and so...

They leave a mess behind them...



But darling let me tell you

The beauty of the game

Is never knowing what lies ahead

It will never be the same

Through love and change you

Find new reasons to love and adore

If we stayed forever frozen in time

Romance would be a bore

There would be no spontaneous kissing

Surprises would be missing

There would be no constant listing

Of reasons that we fall in love in the first place...



Your not the same man i loved yesterday

I'll watch as pieces of you slowly die away

And the colors I'm used to seeing will slowly fade to gray

I'm not surprised that, I find myself in disarray

Your not the same man i knew ... the same man i loved yesterday....
