Story

written 6/7/82----- We would work on all these schools in Newark and Jersey City in the summertime and on lunch break I'd always find where the pianos were. I think I may have written this one on one such afternoon break. My dad would have been none too pleased if he had known what I was doing when I was supposed to be working...My buddy and scaffold partner Phil Castaldo sat there listening while I wrote this one that day.

Lyrics

I Ain't Been The Same Well everyday I have to face myself up to the fact that you ain't coming back and everyday I have to find new ways to convince myself I'm better off this way oh but it's hard and I ain't been the same and every morning if the sun ain't shining it makes it that much harder ever since we parted and went our seperate ways I'm still trying to make a break away oh but it's hard and I ain't been the same no no no and everyday I have to find new ways to convince myself I'm better off this way oh but it's hard and I ain't been the same I ain't been the same I ain't been the same no no no no
