still the same

This song reminds me of my best friend ever. Sadly, we drifted apart after he left to join the Marines and I moved to Georgia. I haven’t been able to catch up with him since. His name is Brian Garmen. He had a sister named Heather. So if by chance any of you should know him, please direct him my way. We had a lot of crazy times together. Ah, a bit of nostalgia on this day of Memorial.

Still the Same
Bob Seger

You always won everytime you placed a bet
You’re still damn good
No one’s gotten to you yet
Everytime they were sure they had you caught
You were quicker than they thought
You’d just turn your back and walk

You always said
The cards would never do you wrong
The trick you said
Was never play the game too long
A gambler’s share
The only risk that you would take
The only loss you could forsake
The only bluff you couldn’t fake

And you’re still the same
I caught up with you yesterday
Moving game to game
No one standing in your way
Turning on the charm
Long enough to get you by
You’re still the same
You still aim high

There you stood
Everybody watched you play
I just turned and walked away
I had nothing left to say
‘Cause you’re still the same
You’re still the same
Moving game to game
Some things never change
You’re still the same
