We all know what it it feels like to have oceans, real or imagined, in between us and those we love.

lyrics

12. JUST THE SAME
Words and music copyright 2000 by Britt Arnesen

The snow on the treetops glows in the darkness
Though I'm alone here in the shadows
The seabeach splashes call my name

Blue sea, the open ocean.
Give me faith, and I'll walk across.

Oh let me know it's not so far
And I'm not really all that cold.
Just let me know you'll be there waiting
Understanding just the same.

Just the same, just the same
Just the same, just the same
Though I've broken every promise
You understand me just the same.

We say, "I love you"
But that's only a voice
And I told you I'd never leave you
You'll notice that it's my choice

And now I'm standing on the edge
Of an ocean between you and I
I just close my eyes and let the wind surround me
I hear you calling from the other side
With your arms outstretched before you
Ready to give me another try

Let me try, let me try
All I need is another try
Though I've broken every promise
You're still waiting to give me life

But I can't breathe here
Trapped by the need to need you
The only way is to take that step

I know you'll be there waiting
Understanding just the same

Just the same, just the same
Just the same, just the same
Though I've broken every promise
You understand me just the same.

Just the same, just the same
Just the same, just the same
Though I've broken
Though I'm broken
Though I'm broken
Through I've broken every promise
You understand me just the same
You'll always love me
Just the same
