Never Be The Same
Christopher Cross 1980
  (Shakedown 301)   Pat Carnathan

OPENER    Basic

Circle to the left
It was good for me, it was good for you
But now nothing either of us can say or do

Left allemande your corner dosado your own
Left allemande your corner weave that ring
I loved you then; I guess I'll love you forever
And even though I know we could never stay together
*I'll think of how it could have been
If we could just start all over again!


FIGURE (Twice for heads, twice for sides)    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands and then
Find your corner lady touch 1/4
Split circulate, single hinge, fan the top
Everybody do a single hinge, scoot back
Well, the boy run right, eight chain 1
Left allemande your corner swing and promenade
*No one will ever touch me that way
The way that you did that very first day


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I'll never be the same without you here
I'll live alone and hide myself behind my tears

Allemande left, weave the ring
No, I'll never be the same without your love
I'll live alone and try so hard to rise above


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*No one will ever touch me that way
The way that you did that very first day

*Time and again, it does me no good
Love never feels the way that it should


NO TAG

(lyrics for Opener)
It was good for me, it was good for you
Now nothing either of us can say or do
Can change the way you feel tonight
Sometimes love just slips out of sight
I loved you then, I guess I'll love you forever
And even though I know we could never stay together
*I'll think of how it could have been
If we could just start all over again!


(lyrics for Middle Break and Closer)
I'll never be the same without you here
I'll live alone and hide myself behind my tears
No, I'll never be the same without your love
I'll live alone and try so hard to rise above
