Same Old Lonely Song


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is the first song I wrote specifically for The Applesauce Project, the first ASP song I ever played with/for other musicians, the first song I recorded (Garageband, using mostly MIDI instruments), and the first I ever shared online.

It's also one of my personal favorite Applesauce Project songs. Enjoy (or not, don't let me tell you what to do)!

John Mietus: Backing vocals, guitars (6- and 12-string acoustic, Epiphone Casino), MIDI keyboards, tambourine
Mark Sexton: Lead vocals, drums
Alan Crouch: Bass

Lyrics
Well I heard that you decided we are through
And I can’t deny I know the reasons why
You say that you are unhappy
I guess I’ve known all along
And I find we’re singing that same old lonely song

Well you know that we pretended not to see
That we drift apart, and not just in our hearts
Where once before was affection
The tension grows just as strong
And I’m tired of singing that same old lonely song

I don’t know how this could happen
Where things took their turn
I won’t forget throughout my life
The lessons we have learned

So it’s time to say we’ll go our separate ways
‘Cause we can’t abide the pain we feel inside
I never intended to hurt you
You never meant to do wrong
But we can’t keep singing that same old lonely song

I don’t know how this could happen
Where things took their turn
I won’t forget throughout my life
The lessons we have learned

So it’s time to say we’ll go our separate ways
‘Cause we can’t abide the pain we feel inside
I never intended to hurt you
You never meant to do wrong
But we can’t keep singing that same old lonely song
No, we can’t keep singing that same old lonely song
