The Same Love That Made Me Laugh
Bill Withers Lyrics


Your love is like a a chunk of gold
Hard to gain, and hard to hold

Like a rose that's soft to touch
Love has gone, and it hurts so much

Well and why
Must the same love that made me laugh
Make me cry?
Well, now you think of love as sitting on a mountain
Think of it as being a great big rock
Won't you think before you started to roll it down
Because once you start it, you can't make it stop

I've given all I have to give
And if you don't want me
I don't wanna live

Well and why
Must the same love that made me laugh
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?

Why you wanna make me wet my pillow
And just cryin' like a weeping willow
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry? Why? Oh, why?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me mess up my pillow
I'm just cryin' like a weeping willow
Now, why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?

Your love is like a a chunk of gold
Hard to gain, and hard to hold

Like a rose that's soft to touch
Love has gone, and it hurts so much

Well and why
Must the same love that made me laugh
Make me cry?

Well, now you think of love as sitting on a mountain
Think of it as being a great big rock
Won't you think before you started to roll it down
Because once you start it, you can't make it stop

I've given all I have to give
And if you don't want me
I don't wanna live

Well and why
Must the same love that made me laugh
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?

Why you wanna make me wet my pillow
And just cryin' like a weeping willow
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry? Why? Oh, why?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me mess up my pillow
I'm just cryin' like a weeping willow
Now, why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?

Winds of March Journey/Perry tribute band

I'm still working on that neat lil drum fill at the 1:30 mark. I don't just want it technically perfect, I also was that feel, that nice smooth feel.

Plus, I'm already singing it, so...yes, I know it's a funny song for a lil white girl :) people that taught me drums, known me for 17 years, had no idea I could sing there. That's the point.

My impetus is two-fold. 1) there's not a lot of female drummers. 2nd I want to be endorsed and get all my drum stuff free, then play in front of people and get paid for it. I'm with Zappa in terms of music: all the good music was already written by guys wearing wigs.

Then, my favorite sticks have been discontinued and that's extremely disturbing. I like Firth maple HS2 Highlander pipe band sticks. Very big, very light and very durable. Biggest sticks I've ever seen. Also lightest I've ever had my hands on. I don't chew up my sticks because I only have 7 pairs. If I want them chewed up, I'll give them to the dogs.

Bill, seriously, you rule. This is one of the best songs ever written. Period.

Criminally underrated

Jordan Rios

You'd be surprised how many people have heard Bill Withers songs but don't actually realize that one man was behind what happens to be a very eclectic range of hit songs.

When I wrote that this is criminally underrated, I was talking about this amazing song and this great album which really doesn't get as much attention as it deserves. I mean this song hasn't even cracked 350,000 views on Youtube or 5,000,000 plays on Spotify for example. His other hits obviously dwarf this in views and plays. And that's the thing about Bill Withers' catalog is that his biggest hits drastically overshadow most of his best work that goes under the radar like this song. To me, this is some of the best music ever and it doesn't look like it's gotten nearly enough appreciation. People don't talk enough about how talented Bill was and how amazing his story is and how deftly he was able to change his music through the years (post-Still Bill) to not just stay relevant, but create timeless enduring songs that didn't follow trends of the time.

tldr version: Most of Bill's best work doesn't get the enough recognition and Bill doesn't get enough recognition for as much as he's given the world.

How is he underrated? He's won numberous Grammys and was named one the greatest song writers ever

Frankie Hansen

Yeah Right.

Junior Edge

Does not get the recognition he deserves

Your love is like a a chunk of gold
Hard to gain, and hard to hold

Like a rose that's soft to touch
Love has gone, and it hurts so much

Well and why
Must the same love that made me laugh
Make me cry?

Well, now you think of love as sitting on a mountain
Think of it as being a great big rock
Won't you think before you started to roll it down
Because once you start it, you can't make it stop

I've given all I have to give
And if you don't want me
I don't wanna live

Well and why
Must the same love that made me laugh
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?

Why you wanna make me wet my pillow
And just cryin' like a weeping willow
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry? Why? Oh, why?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me mess up my pillow
I'm just cryin' like a weeping willow
Now, why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
