Music Monday : Ever The Same by Rob Thomas

I recently read that Rob Thomas wrote this beautiful song for his wife about her struggle with chronic illness (an autoimmune disease).

I know of another song that he wrote about this topic as well.

It’s such a raw, honest, and true sentiment which describes the emotional impact that chronic, invisible illnesses, and pain have on both the person who suffers from it and their significant other.

I think it somehow made my heart simultaneously break and smile all at once. It really hit home for me as both a chronic illness & pain patient and the supporting spouse of someone suffering with pain.

I love this song, lyrics, and meaning so I will be exploring more of Rob Thomas’s music, which I have rarely listened to before now. Enjoy!

Lyrics
We were drawn from the weeds
We were brave like soldiers
Falling down under the pale moonlight
You were holding me like someone broken
And I couldn’t tell you but I’m telling you now

Just let me hold you while you’re falling apart
Just let me hold you and we’ll both fall down

Fall on me
Tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same

We would stand in the wind
We were free like water
Flowing down
Under the warmth of the sun

Now it’s cold and we’re scared
And we’re both been shaken
Yeah, look at us man
This doesn’t need to be the end

Just let me hold you while you’re falling apart
Just let me hold you and we’ll both fall down

Fall on me
Tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same

Call on me
And I’ll be there for you
And you’ll be there for me
Forever it’s you
Forever in me
Ever the same

You may need me there
To carry all your weight
But you’re no burden I assure

You tide me over
With a warmth I’ll not forget
But I can only give you love

Fall on me
Tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same

Call on me
And I’ll be there for you
And you’ll be there for me
Forever it’s you
Forever in me
Ever the same

Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same
Ever the same
