Lyrics for singles by Bob Seger

Turn the Page
Still the Same

Turn the Page

On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha
You can listen to the engine moanin' out it's one note song
You can think about the woman, or the girl you knew the night before

But your thoughts will soon be wandering, the way they always do
When you're riding sixteen hours and there's nothing much to do
And you don't feel much like riding, you just wish the trip was through

Here I am: on the road again
There I am: up on the stage
Here I go: playing star again
There I go . . . turn the page

Well you walk into a restaurant all strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you as you're shaking off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you, but you just want to explode

Most times you can't hear 'em talk, other times you can
All the same old cliches: "Is it a woman or a man?"
And you always seem outnumbered, so you don't dare make a stand


Out there in the spotlight you're a million miles away
Every ounce of energy, you try to give away
As the sweat pours out your body like the music that you play

Later in the evening as you lie awake in bed
With the echoes from the amplifiers ringin' in your head
You smoke the day's last cigarette, remembering what she said



Still the Same

You always won every time you placed a bet
You're still damn good --- no one's gotten to you yet
Every time they were sure they had you caught
You were quicker than they thought
You just turned your back and walked

You always said "the cards will never do you wrong"
The trick, you said "must 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  [still the same, still the same]
Moving game to game
No one standing in your way
Turning on the charm
Long enough to get you by  [still the same, still the same]
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
'Cuz you're still the same
