Never Be the Same

I know you, who are you now?
Look into my eyes if you can't remember
Do you remember? Oh

"Fang," you whisper desperately. "Do you remember me? Do you remember us?" He looks into your eyes, searching.

"Who are you again?"

"Max. My name is Max. And yours is Fang," you cry. "What happened?"

"Nick!" a female voice calls.

He looks sorry for you. "I hope you find the man you're looking for," he says before leaving. You reach out for him, but he's already gone.

"Fang!" you sob, tears cascading down your cheeks. "Fang."

I can see, I can still find
You're the only voice my heart can recognize
But I can't hear you now, yeah

He laughs at her joke, oblivious to you. You can recognize that laugh anywhere. Your heart thumps painfully as he leans across the table to kiss her. That should be you. Not her. You turn away from the scene, heading home.

I'll never be the same
I'm caught inside the memories
The promises
Our yesterdays
When I belonged to you

He grins at you as he leans down for another kiss.

"I love you, Maximum Ride," he murmurs.

"Fang?" you ask. "Promise you'll never leave me."

"I promise."


I just can't walk away
'Cause after loving you
I can never be the same


Your heart longs to go and hold him, but you resist. You've never been the same since the accident. He broke his promise. He left you, you remind your heart. If only you could believe it.


And how can I pretend I never knew you?
Like it was all a dream, no
I know, I'll never forget
The way I always felt with you beside me
And how you loved me then, yeah

You snuggle into his side, feeling the way your bodies mold perfectly together. Your heart is warm, knowing that he won't ever leave you. And as you fall asleep, you have no idea what is to come.

I'll never be the same
I'm caught inside the memories
The promises
Our yesterdays
When I belonged to you
I just can't walk away
'Cause after loving you
I can never be the same

The doctor walks in, holding his clipboard with a grave face.

"Miss Ride?" he asks you.

"Yes?"

"Fang here hit his head pretty hard. I'm afraid that he won't be able to remember anything. We believe that he now has long term memory loss. I'm sorry." As he walks out of the room, Fang stirs.

"Fang?" you whisper. He moans, and then looks at you quizzically.

"Do I know you?"


You led me here
But then I watched you disappear
You left this emptiness inside and
I can't turn back time
No, stay
Nothing compares to you
Nothing compares to you
I can't let you go
Can't let you go
I can't let you...

I'll never be the same
Not after loving you
Not after loving you, no

I'll never be the same
I'm caught inside the memories
The promises
Our yesterdays
When I belonged to you
I just can't walk away
'Cause after loving you
I can never be the same
I can never be the same
I will never be the same

I just can't walk away
No I can't walk away
From you

"Nick," you call. He turns to you, his smile fading. He walks over to you, a puzzled look on his face. A wave of fright comes over you, causing you to doubt your theory. You push it away hastily, putting a smile on your face.

"Nick," you repeat. "Do you remember the day that you said that you hope that I find the person I'm looking for?"

"Yes," he says slowly.

"Well, you're him. I'm your fiancée. You promised me that you would never leave me. but you did when you hit your head. You forgot all about our past, everything."

"I'm sorry. I think you—" You cut him off by kissing him. He pulls away, looking bewildered.

"Max?" he asks you quietly. You nod, a real smile spreading across your face.
