All The Same lyrics
by Sick Puppies.

I don't mind where you come from
As long as you come to me
I don't like illusions I can't see
Them clearly

I don't care no I wouldn't dare
To fix the twist in you
You've shown me eventually
What you'll do

I don't mind...
I don't care...
As long as you're here

Go ahead tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's all the same

Hours slide and days go by
Till you decide to come
And in between it always seems too long
All of a sudden

And I have the skill, yeah I have the will
To breathe you in while I can
However long you stay
Is all that I am
[ All The Same lyrics found on http://www.completealbumlyrics.com/ ]

I don't mind...
I don't care...
As long as you're here

Go ahead tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's always the same

Wrong or right
Black or white
If I close my eyes
It's all the same

In my life
The compromise
I close my eyes
It's all the same

Go ahead say it you're leaving
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's all the same

Here, we have another great video... so we get inspired

Hehe, very good song, I think - I have listened it on and on when I saw the videos of free hugs. When Free Hugs were going on here in Nova Gorica, I tried to participate in them, but unfortunatelly I was working. You cannot hug and work as a waiter in a crowded bar in the center of Nova Gorica (Splendid bar). But it was really fun looking people hugging each other ...
Good work!

I think that "free hugs" it's a great idea because permit you help another person that needs affection and company and everyone can participate.
