I know that everything changes
Yeah, it's strange how time marches on
Well, maybe there'll be some time in the future
Oh, tell me
(I'm not wrong)
Tell me I'm not wrong

Oh, if I could stop time
It would be a frozen moment just around Christmas
When all of mankind reveals its truest potential
And there is sympathy for the suffering
And there is sympathy for those who are suffering

And the world embraces peace and love and mercy
Instead of power and fear and as sure as I'm standing here
I swear it really does appear that a change comes over us
Yes, some kind of change comes over us

And it's glimpsed, it's glimpsed it for one shining moment
And this change, well, feels like a change that's real
But then it passes along with the season
And then we, we just go back to the way we were
Yeah, we go back to the way we were

And say it isn't so
(Say it isn't so)
Tell me I'm not just a dreamer
(I'm not just a dreamer)
Tell me 'cause I'm talking with a friend
And he knows how it ends

He says it's easier, he says that
That's just the way we are
That it's human nature
And that's just the way we are

Say it isn't so
Say it isn't so
Say it isn't so
...
