Same Girl - Jennifer Lopez




Experience: I've made it big. My dreams have come true. But if that means changing who I am, and becoming someone different from the kid who dreamed those dreams... is it worth it?

Music Video: Jennifer Lopez back in the Bronx, on the train and with friends back in her very own Castle Hill neighborhood. Meanwhile, her glam self - dressed in white and gold with red nails and lipstick - sings that she knows she "never changed." And her people in the Bronx back her up: she's still "Jenny from the hood."

Meaning of Same Girl: Jennifer Lopez filmed a lot of the music video in her own neighborhood - Castle Hill in the Bronx - and the song is about making it, only to face the accusation that you're not who you used to be. Do fame and fortune have to change who you are? Jennifer says they don't... if you're willing to fight to keep your name.

Ask Yourself: Does success or failure change who you are?


LYRICS:

It’s killing me
I’m losing sleep
And I’m waking up tired (of it all)
3 in the morning
And it's starting already
With my name always involved

I try to get rid of the baggage
Fake friends I call them "has-been"
Yeah they lying on stuff
And I don’t care if they don't show me love (no)

So they want me to lie down
They want me to crawl
They want me to cry now
But I've never fallen off

Why you tryna put the world up on my shoulders?
Get off of me
Get off of me
Too damn grown, I don’t owe nobody
Get off of me
Get off of me
Why you tryna put the world up on my shoulders?
Get off of me
Get off of me
Too damn grown, I don’t owe nobody
Get off of me
Get off of me
Cuz in the end I’m still the same girl (same girl)
Same girl (same girl)
Same girl (same girl)
I’m just the same girl (same girl)
Same girl (same girl)
Same girl (same girl)

Tell me what I gotta do
I'm tryna make it clear to you
Not dealing with the attitude
I’m tired of tryna make you see that I'm still me
Switched up my longitude and latitude
You're in my way, you better move
'Cause I'm on the same ground
I know I never changed
I'm lovin' every day
I know that I'm the same Jenny from around the bay

So they want me to lie down
They want me to crawl
They want me to crack now
But I'm never fallin' off

Why you tryna put the world up on my shoulders?
Get off of me
Get off of me
Too damn grown, I don’t owe nobody
Get off of me
Get off of me
Why you tryna put the world up on my shoulders?
Get off of me
Get off of me
Too damn grown, I don’t owe nobody
Get off of me
Get off of me
Cuz in the end I’m still the same girl (same girl)
Same girl (same girl)
Same girl (same girl)
I’m just the same girl (same girl)
Same girl (same girl)
Same girl (same girl)
