Nothing changes

Nothing changes I want to be different The young they all cry Not follow the rules Of those who’ve passed by Stand-up be counted Live life that’s free I want to be different I want to be me I’m looking for changes To the way life is led Not following guidelines That do in my head My opinion should matter My voice should be heard But these are just echoes Of yesterday’s words I want to be different The old ones did say Not following blindly But find a new way Mistakes from the past Is a road not for me This is my life And I’ll set myself free Yesterday’s gone A change now has come The old ones all shouted While they were still young They thought they were different With this future they saw But soon found their speeches Had been heard before
