5. Ain't the Same

Words and music by Grant Van Leuven

2004 Dumb Sheep Music

Song Sketch Intro:
I was rewarded by work with a trip to LA that included some work presentations to attend. Was able to take my wife and 8-month-old daughter at the company's expense.  Really looking forward to it, together.  Daughter got the chicken pox that week and had to leave them both behind.  Had fun once I was there (Got my picture taken with Sponge Bob at Universal Studios -- was the only non-child in line), but I was pretty bumbed on my trip out on the plane.  Thankfully, got to take them with me the following year. Oh yeah, I went Leon Redbone on ya with this one!

CHORUS
Ain’t the same without you near me
Ain’t the same without you here with me
I pass the lonely hours thinking of you
It ain’t the same without you near me
Ain’t the same without you here with me, my dear
Without you near, it ain’t the same

Passing over patches of Phoenix
In the belly of this big metal bird
The rolling hills of Pittsburgh far behind me now
Where I left you with our little baby girl

CHORUS

Now I know how much I hate to leave you
I was getting ready to have so much fun
But now I just want to buy you and baby presents
And come back to your kisses and your hugs

CHORUS
