Sublime's, "Saw Red"
The Lyrics:
Every day I love her just a little bit more
And she loves me the same.
He needs to compare how much she loves him to something. Using "the same" without a comparison is incorrect Example: "Every day I love her just a little bit more and she loves me the same as the last time I asked her how much she loved me." It just doesn't have the same ring to it....

Sublime's, "What I Got"
The Lyrics:
Lovin' is
Is what I got.
It should be: Loving is, it's what I've got OR's what I have.
