A missed step by the river's edge
A chosen word but it took too long
Your last chance is all he said
You won't miss it 'till it's gone

A ghost in the distance
Where the ocean meets the land
A fallen angel in a trance
A conversation you don't understand

Change, everybody wants it
Just a little hope and honesty
Change, everybody needs it
Open up our hearts so that we can see

A young man with a blue beard
Counting days that seem too long
Can't wait, wait another minute
For my fifteen minutes in the sun

Gotta sweep this act I follow
Dust off this passion play
Believe in fate cast off this sorrow
It's just a stone's throw away

Change, everybody wants it
Just a little hope and honesty
Change, everybody needs it
Open up our hearts so that we can see

Some will think I'm crazy
Some will think I'm strange
I'm trying to satisfy this hunger
Somebody stop this pain

No signs of redemption
Can't take the guilt they live
Gonna live and die in this world
Pushing and pulling 'till something gives

Change, everybody wants it
Just a little hope and honesty
Change, everybody needs it
Open up our hearts so that we can see

Change, everybody wants it
Just a little hope and honesty
Change, everybody needs it
Open up our hearts so that we can see

Visions of such temptation
We can never take it too far
That's the price of the true sensation
To find out who we really are

Keep digging, digging for answers
Keep searching you can't give in
Will we ever understand
A truth we cannot comprehend

Change, everybody wants it
Just a little hope and honesty
Change, everybody needs it
Open up our hearts so that we can see

A missed step by the rivers edge
A chosen word but it took too long
Your last chance is all he said
You won't miss it 'till it's gone

Change, change
Change, everybody wants it
Just a little hope and honesty
Change, everybody needs it
Open up our hearts so that we can see

Change, everybody wants it
Just a little hope and honesty
Change, everybody needs it
Open up our hearts so that we can see
