You Said the Same Thing About Me (Stripped)-New Release

0

So… I’m still figuring out the best way to release new music and let people know about it. Communication is such an art, and it’s an art that I’m not too proud to admit that I’m still learning 🙂 The stripped version of my song “You Said the Same Thing About Me,” is now available on all streaming sites.

I’ve already released this version of my song on my YouTube channel, so many of you have heard it. If you haven’t already, please listen to it! I feel like I didn’t realize how emotional this song was until I changed the way it was presented. (They do say that presentation is everything). It’s weird to see something that you’ve created from a different point of view; To realize that everything we are and everything that we produce has layers and chapters; It’s almost like a different translation of something that I thought I already understood… and I like it better. In short, after recording this song this way, I feel that it is the way that it was always meant to be communicated. I love the original version, but this version makes me feel so much more.

If you don’t already know, I love doing this. I love writing music. I love singing. I love recording. I love performing. I love every part about it. But most of all, I love the way that music can connect people. And when my music connects me to people, and people to other people, that is real, genuine, pure magic. Thank you for bringing magic to my life. I really don’t care if I make money doing music. If this is a side-project forever, I will still do it forever. Thank you so much to telling me, showing me, reminding me that what I do has meaning. That incredible gift that you give to me is worth more than anything. Thank you.

You Said the Same Thing About Me

by Abby Berman

I cannot imagine

I cannot even fathom

You loving her.

Don’t bother with her name

Because they’re all just the same,

And I don’t need to know.

Tell me she’s the one,

Tell me she’s your dream,

Tell me she’s your home,

She’s your everything.

Then tell me

You know you’ll love her tomorrow.

I cannot speak…

It hurts my heart to think

You’d spend your life with her.

And you pretend with ease-

You’re just so eager to please

Is it exhausting?

Tell me she’s the one,

Tell me she’s your dream,

Tell me she’s your home,

She’s your everything.

Then tell me

You know you’ll love her tomorrow.

Because you said the same thing about me.

And I know, I know you think you love her.

And I know, I know you think you need her.

But I know, I know you better than that,

And you said the same thing about me.

Looking through our past,

What I was sure would last,

Is just laughable.

And from you there’s no denial

It was real all the while

It’s just insulting.

Tell her she’s the one,

Tell her she’s your dream,

Tell her she’s your home,

She’s your everything.

Then tell me

You know you’ll love her tomorrow.

Because you said the same thing about me.

And look, and look at where it got us.

I could have done, I could have done without the heartache.

I could have done, I could have done without a lot of things.

And I could have used a little more affection.

Maybe a little more, a little more truth

Because I really, I really loved you,

And you had me fooled

You had me going for longer than I care to admit.

I cannot imagine,

I cannot even fathom,

You loving her.

For more than just a while,

I was your reason to smile.

That’s all I’ll ever know.
