Lyrics

(Quealy,Gullbergh)

Of all the joints in all the world s
She walked into mine
Passed me by the jukebox
I had one more play
The girl knew what was on my weary mind
She leaned in hit E-10 and just walked away
I went back to the bar alone
And didn’t have to look
To know what song she chose
I listened to it once and I got out of there
Twice was more than I could bear

We played the same song at the same time
And I knew then, her heart
Was bleeding just like mine
We weren’t only, feeling lonely
Love hurts when it goes wrong
But we played the same song

Standing in the pouring rain
I haled a passing cab
She wasn’t far behind me coming out the door
Her eyes were saying, “why not split the fare”?
We got in, pulled away and didn’t say much more
‘Til we stopped outside her old brownstone
The one we used to share
And we were lost in time
Somewhere between confusion and regret
She looked at me and said

We played the same song at the same time
And I knew then your heart
Was bleeding just like mine
We weren’t only, feeling lonely
Love hurts when it goes wrong
But we played the same song

We laughed and cried about the good old days
We kissed goodbye and went our separate ways, but

We played the same song; all the same lines
We knew then our hearts
Were bleeding right in time
We weren’t only, feeling lonely
Love hurts when you’re movin’ on
But we played the same song
