SongtextBearbeiten

Just as I thought it was going all right
I found out I'm wrong, when I thought I was right
It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all
I could say day, and you'd say night
Tell me it's black when I know that it's white
Always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

I could leave but I won't go
Though my heart might tell me so
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
Why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

Turning me on, turning me off
Making me feel like I want too much
Living with you's just putting me through it all of the time
Running around, staying out all night
Taking it all instead of taking one bite
Living with you's just putting me through it all of the time

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
But why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
It's always the same, it´s just a shame, that's all

Truth is I love you
More than I wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend
There's been no one who
Makes me feel like you do
Say we'll be together 'til the end

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
So why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
It's always the same, it´s just a shame, that's all

But I love you
More than I wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend
There's been no one who
Makes me feel like you do
Say we'll be together 'til the end

But js I thought it was going all right
I found out I'm wrong when I thought I was right
It's always the same, it´s just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell me it's black when I know that it's white
It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

Über den SongBearbeiten

Der Song wurde von Phil nach dem Vorbild eines Beatles Song verfasst. Ihm war dabei wichtig, einen eingegängigen und guten Popsong zu schreiben.

Der Song handelt von einer Beziehung, in welcher es immer wieder Differenzen gibt (,,I could say day, and you'd say night; tell me it's black when I know that it's white"). Dieses Thema zieht sich durch den ganzen Song hindurch.

Der Song beginnt mit dem Main-Keyboardsound von Tony Banks Yamaha CP-70 Electric Grand Paino. Desweiteren ist der Song sehr einfach gehalten.
