Indeed, after loving and losing, one is never the same. Etheridge captures these emotions so well in "I Will Never Be The Same". She is a true poet; she consistently is able to find just the right words to express feelings many of us share. Although this is among songs written in her "coming out" era, the songs can be appreciated by many. One can see in her lyrics, the torture and the rapture with which she has loved. Rarely has Melissa Etheridge written a song that I haven't enjoyed but, this one is one of those songs that stays with you.
