Nothing Stays The Same (Matthews/Elastica)
Published by EMI Music.
This is the album version. Other versions: Donna's home demo.

Justine: "We kept it quite true to the original demo. We wanted it to sound quite 'Velvets', quite a simple arrangement."


took back time, take an instant pleasure
credit is due for the life of leisure
get to work and work gets done
best at being was not best at all

face the facts, being best got bitter
simple tastes won't suit me better
used to matter but that got done
best at being was not best at all

nothing stays the same
always change to remain

less than fine peace of mind
keep in check there is no time

tasks take time and time took effort
packed in pieces and pieced together
tend to work and work gets done
best at being was not best at all

Produced by Marc Waterman/Elastica
Engineered by Tom Rixton/Phillip Bagnall
