    “Changes”

    I still don’t know what I was waiting forAnd my time was running wildA million dead-end streetsEvery time I thought I’d got it madeIt seemed the taste was not so sweetSo I turned myself to face meBut I’ve never caught a glimpseOf how the others must see the fakerI’m much too fast to take that test

    Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes(Turn and face the stranger)Ch-ch-ChangesDon’t want to be a richer manCh-ch-ch-ch-Changes(Turn and face the stranger)Ch-ch-ChangesJust gonna have to be a different manTime may change meBut I can’t trace time

    I watch the ripples change their sizeBut never leave the streamOf warm impermanence andSo the days float through my eyesBut still the days seem the sameAnd these children that you spit onAs they try to change their worldsAre immune to your consultationsThey’re quite aware of what they’re going through

    Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes(Turn and face the stranger)Ch-ch-ChangesDon’t tell them to grow up and out of itCh-ch-ch-ch-Changes(Turn and face the stranger)Ch-ch-ChangesWhere’s your shameYou’ve left us up to our necks in itTime may change meBut you can’t trace time

    Strange fascination, fascinating meChanges are taking the paceI’m going through

    Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes(Turn and face the stranger)Ch-ch-ChangesOh, look out you rock ‘n rollersCh-ch-ch-ch-Changes(Turn and face the stranger)Ch-ch-ChangesPretty soon you’re gonna geta little olderTime may change meBut I can’t trace timeI said that time may change meBut I can’t trace time

    Two of the most dangerous (or exciting) words in the English language…“I’m bored…”

    …nobody really likes change, but the funny thing is, as i get older, i recognize much quicker how change is inevitable, and learn to not stress about it anywhere near as much as the younger me…

    Well done. Admirable restraint. I’d better leave; I feel mine slipping.

    If only we could pick and choose. I was a teen / young adult in the ‘60s. We really thought we could change the course of the world, and really believed we had the charge to do so. We did effect change but it was of the “unintended consequences” type. Funny thing is, the adults in our lives were the generation who really did change the world during World War II and we couldn’t hear a word they said. Years later I learned, while trying to sell one house to buy another during the mortgage crisis of the early ’80s, that we have very little control over change in our own lives much less the wider world.

    Don’t even talk to me about change. I hate that word.

    I agree with Calvin. Things always seem to change for the worst.

    It took me 10 seconds. You go online and waste your time insulting people who have done you no wrong.

    I have said many times that C&H is a politics free zone but some people will turn everything back to politics.

    Some companies do not want to change and stay the same not updating to be more effective.

    We’re probably still paying for the French andIndians wars of the 1760’s and every war since,I shouldn’t wonder!
