"Never Gonna Be the Same" is a reggaedancehall song written by Sean Paul for his third album The Trinity (2005). It is the fifth international single taken from the album. It is a tribute to his murdered friend, Daddigon. It was a split single with "Give It Up to Me", which was released in its place in the US. The single reached the top 10 in France upon its release. It was digitally released in the UK on 10 July 2006, with its physical release on 17 July 2006. The single peaked at #22 there, Paul's lowest chart peak there since the first release of "Gimme the Light".

This single is on the popular "Seasons Riddim", a huge dancehall instrumental, on which other artists such as Morgan Heritage, T.O.K., Gyptian, and Wayne Wonder have recorded.

The song refers to several notable Jamaicans who are deceased, including Father Bogle, Simpleton and Peter Cargill.

The hook and bridge of the song was originally used on Das EFX's 2003 album How We Do, on the track "The Memories Remain", which Sean Paul was featured on.
