Audio

"My Same" is a song by British soul singer Adele released on her debut album 19. It was written and produced by Adele. The song was written solely by Adele and produced by Jim Abbiss. It appears as the tenth track on the album.

It charted in Germany after German singer Lena Meyer-Landrut had performed it on the talent show contest Unser Star für Oslo (Our Star for Oslo), in which the German entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 was determined. Lena also covered it on her album. It charted at #61 in Germany.

BackgroundEdit

"My Same" was written while Adele was studying at the BRIT School. Originally intended solely for a demo she recorded for a class project, it was later submitted to XL Recordings after they had discovered and signed Adele. The demo also included rough versions of "Daydreamer" and "Hometown Glory." It featured two versions of "My Same," one of which was labelled a "jazz version." An early demo of "My Same," assumed to be the jazz version, has since appeared on the Internet.[1]

According to Adele during her performance filmed for Live at the Royal Albert Hall, "My Same" was written after she had a falling out with her best friend, Laura. She also said that they had since rekindled their friendship. Laura was present at the concert and was briefly shown in the audience during the performance.[2]

Adele played the guitar on the album version of the track.

You say I'm stubborn and I never give in
I think you're stubborn, 'cept you're always softening
You say I'm selfish, I agree with you on that
I think you're giving, I think way too much, in fact
I say we've only known each other a year
You say, "Pfft, I've known you longer my dear"

You like to be so close, I like to be alone
I like to sit on chairs and you prefer the floor
Walking with each other, think we'd never match at all
But we do

But we do
But we do
But we do

I thought I knew myself, somehow you know me more
I've never known this, never before
You're the first to make up whenever we argue
Don't know who I'd be, if I didn't know you
You're so provocative, I'm so conservative
And you're so adventurous, I'm so very cautious
Combining
You think we wouldn't, we do

But we do
But we do
But we do

Favouritism ain't my thing, but
In this situation, I'll be glad
Favouritism ain't my thing, but
I'll be glad to make an exception

You say I'm stubborn and I never give in
I think you're stubborn, 'cept you're always softening
And you say I'm selfish, I agree with you on that
I think you're giving, I think way too much, in fact
I say we've only known each other a year
You say, "Pfft, I've known you longer my dear"

You like to be so close, I like to be alone
I like to sit on chairs and you prefer the floor
Walking with each other, think we'd never match at all
But we do
