When you love someone deeply for a long time, losing them is something that is difficult to face. If they are gone, your love for that person will always stay the same. For some people, even if years have gone by, they still feel the same. Nothing can take away the love they feel for that person, especially if that person is the one you always thought to be the person you were supposed to spend the rest of your life with.

The Song’s Content

Ray Price’s love song “The Same Old Me” is all about loving the same person the same way as you used to. The narrator knows that his ex-lover has found someone new, however, he still wants her back. When he saw her, the love he felt for her became more intense. The narrator will take his ex-lover back if ever she will come running back to him. Even though he did all he can to forget about her, nothing changes. He always ends up loving her the same way he loved her when she was with him.
