Lyrics

One and the Same
Words and Music by Craig Bowers

3 o'clock, I've got the coffee on, looks like it's gonna be a long, long night
Tossing, turning, staring at the ceiling with a feeling that I just can't fight
Because I know that I can't keep from sleeping
And that's when those dreams come creeping in
Where the one who loves you and the one you love
Are one and the same

Every day I put on a show so that you won't know what I'm feeling inside
I half listen to a story that you tell and say 'I wish you well' but you know that I lied
Can't you feel these signals I'm sending?
For me there's just one happy ending
Where the one who loves you and the one you love
Are one and the same

They say there's a million worlds out there
Where everybodys dreams come true
In all my dreams, and imaginary scenes
All I want is you
All I need is you

Now the clock keeps ticking the words keep sticking in my throat and I can't let it out
I'll never ask you to make that choice my baby, that's not what it's all about
So I'll just be your good friend, but my heart will always pretend
That the one who loves you and the one you love
Are one and the same

I'm the one who loves you, I'm the one who cares
