Justin McRoberts – Change lyrics

I've been waiting here so long for this
For you to give that old idea the slip
And see how those who are alive have lived

Some would say it's sweeter than the life you've lived of late
But that its sweetness is the bitter taste
Of giving everything you are away

You're going to have to change
Change the way you see
You'll have to change your mind

I'll bet you wanted more from life than living it
You'd like to swim but you just can't commit
And you're afraid that you might drown in it

But diving in, even in knowing that you cannot swim
You've got to die before your life begins
And underwater learn to breathe
