I wrote this song for my girls, Gemma and Claire, to let them know I've always been there for them and always will.

Just the Same

1.  (c g, f c, am f, c g c)

 

You’ll remember your first faltering steps

When you reached for me ‘til you were safe

And then you crossed the world on your own

But my hands were behind you just the same

 

2. (c g, f c, am g, f  c g c)

 

Then your steps moved to a run on the ground

And no fear was in your mind as you fell down

I wiped the tears from your eyes

And was there just behind you just the same

 

Chorus   (c f, c f, c f, c g c)

 

And oh but you felt alone

And oh you thought that you were grown

And oh but you were never alone

I was there behind you just the same

 

3. (c g, f c, am f, c g c)

 

You’ll recall the first steps into your youth

When you opened your heart to the world

And the pain of times you lost a love

But I was there beside you just the same

 

4. (c g, f c, am f, c g c)

 

And when life’s fears slowed your steps

And you thought you could walk no more

And with the fear of losing all you loved

I was there beside you just the same

 

Chorus    (c  f , c f,  c f,  c g c)

 

And though you didn’t know it

And although you didn’t want these hands

And although I didn’t show it

I was there right beside just the same

 

5         (c g, f c, am f, c g c)

 

Now your own reach for you on life’s path

And you are there right behind them just the same

And you’ll remember your own faltering steps

And how I was there behind you just the same

 

Chorus   (c f, c f, c f, c g c)

 

And oh but you felt alone

And oh how you had grown

And oh you were never alone

I was there beside you just the same

 

6              (c g, f c, am f, c g c)

 

When their life’s fears are upon you

And your troubles bear heavily on you

And you fear your burdens will drown you

I’ll be there beside you just the same

 

Chorus       (c f , c f,  c f,  c g c)

 

And when I am gone

And you find yourself alone

Just think of my love for you

And I’ll be there beside you just the same

 

 

(repeat)
