Change in Life


Everybody needs a change in life
Everybody needs to think twice
Everyone who's around
Everyone that you see
We are all in bound
To have to change to see clearly
Life won't change unless you change
Things won't go by unless you go by

A change in life could mean possibilities
More open doors and responsibilities
Hoping to ignore what cannot be
Joking towards the lord on a canopy
Life needs changes and I think it's respect
Respect will change life and no one will object
Changes in life is such a natural way
Instead of walking away
Your going to want to stay

Changes happen round and round
Make sure that in life
Your not the rebound
Step up to the plate and take on respect
So no one will see you as the one to disrespect
Do what you have to do to make your way through
Do what it takes to always remain true
Make sure it happens day in and out
Without a doubt and all the way through

Changes in life is about understanding things
Changes in life is growing out of things
Changes in life is an obsessive thing for me
I can't see going without changing
It is important to me
Grow mature and a little bit older
But as I get older I feel a little colder
I want to be old and happy 
Not like a soldier
