Same as We is a 'scena', a 'theatrical monologue', rather than a 'song'. Using text from Alfred Lord Tennyson's The Promise of May, it is intended that the piece be both dramatic and, albeit in a generalised way, illustrative. The music is antiphonal - an unseen voice (a pre-recorded tape) addresses a woman whose voice is thus the same as her interlocutor. Perhaps it is her younger-self (her memory?) or maybe it is her contemporary (her conscience?).
