Same
What you gonna get?
For all you've got
When you treat the one you love like they are nothin'
Who you gonna call?
While you're on your own
You build the bet you burn, in your home
You had somebody who loved you
What did you do?

To some other kind of thrill with the feeling gone
Say you're gon' be fine
While you're on your own
You left the one you love right there alone

Overall Meaning

In "Same To You," Melody Gardot sings about the consequences of mistreating someone who loves you, warning that you're likely to have the same thing done to you in return. The song is a reflection on the karmic nature of relationships and how our actions towards others can come back to haunt us. The opening lines pose the question, "What you gonna get for all you've got, when you treat the one you love like they are nothing?" suggesting that if you don't treat your partner with love and respect, you'll end up with nothing in return.


The chorus repeats the phrase "the same to you," as if to hammer home the point that what goes around comes around. The verses speak directly to the person who has left someone they loved for someone else. The song suggests that this is a foolish and selfish act that will ultimately lead to that same person being left and hurt, as they did to their previous partner.


Overall, "Same to You" is a powerful reminder that we should treat those we love with respect and kindness, as we will reap what we sow in our relationships. It's a warning against being reckless with people's hearts and taking love for granted.

Lo mismo para ti :

Lo que se va a conseguir
Por todo lo que tienes
Cuando tratas a la persona que amas como si no existiera ?
A quien vas a llamar
Cuando tu está en su propia casa
Quemaste el lado de su cama.

Tenías a alguien que te quería
¿Qué hiciste?
tenías a alguien que te quería
lo que D'ya ponerlos a través de ahora la miel?
Dejaste a alguien que te quería
Ahora se va a hacer lo mismo están para usted
Señor, que van a hacer lo mismo para usted

Lo mismo para ti
Lo mismo para ti
que van a hacer lo mismo ahora
Lo mismo para ti
Lo mismo para ti

que van a hacer lo mismo ahora.

Lo que se va a conseguir mientras se mueve en
a algún otro tipo de emoción,
pero la emoción se ha ido
di que va a estar bien mientras estès
que dejó el amor allí mismo, por sí solo.

Tenías a alguien que te quería
¿Qué hiciste?
tenías a alguien que te quería
lo que hace ponerlos a través de la ahora dulce
Dejaste a alguien que te quería
Ahora se va a hacer lo mismo estándo tu

Ellos van a hacer lo mismo ahora

Magnifique !!!

What you gonna' get for all you got
when you treat the one you love like they are not
Who you gonna call while you're on your own
you built the bed you burned right within your home

You had somebody who loved you
what did you do
you had somebody who loved you
what d'ya put them through now honey
You left somebody who loved you
Now they gonna do the same to you
Lord, they gonna do the same to you
(the same to you...)
What you gonna get while you're moving on
to some other kind of thrill but the thrill is gone
say you gonna be fine while you're on you're own
you left the one you love right there alone

You had somebody who loved you
what did you do

you had somebody who loved you
what d'ya put them through now honey
You left somebody who loved you
Now they gonna do the same to you
Lord, they gonna do the same to you
(the same to you...)
