Change

Check out the audio for this song on our Music page!

I wrote this song a while ago on the guitar. Honestly, I didn't really feel like playing an instrument today, so I flipped my guitar over and tapped an awkward and impromptu beat as I sang.

The lyrics to this song, although maybe not very hopelyfe-esque, are pretty true to my own experiences in life while connecting with others. Sometimes, society and the people around us don't seem to have empathy towards us, and it may feel like the universe is against us. The truth of the matter, however, is that there's always something to be grateful for; it's focusing on those bright parts of life, that will help us through the darker ones. Darkness is only the absence of light, so as we see the light, we can lift the darkness. We can also be the change we wish to see in the world, and although it's definitely easier said than done, it isn't impossible.

Here's to striving for a better us.


Verse 1:

Your words are

Like a voice

That 

Tells me what to know

And who I should be.

It hurts

To know

That you will

Never get how it

Hurts when you 

Break me.

Chorus:

It’s so painfully strange

That some things will never change

And everywhere I go

I lose everything I think I know

But some things will never change

Verse 2:

I have 

So much 

To give

And yet my heart just 

Falls

With every beat.

And every

Time I 

Need your

Strength and love the most 

I get defeat.

Chorus:

It’s so painfully strange

That some things will never change

And everywhere I go

I lose everything I think I know

But some things will never change

Bridge:

You'll shatter, it’s your turn

But you matter, you’ll learn

That fire and fire just burn

And I won’t be healed

Of colours revealed

Just try for an even battle field, but I guess

Chorus:

It’s so painfully strange

That some things will never change

And everywhere I go

I lose everything I think I know

But some things will never change

 

It’s so painfully strange

That some things will never change

It’s so painfully strange

But some things just stay the same.
