The Change Lyrics

by Garth Brooks

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm
While a thousand more go unspoken for
And they say you, what good have you done by saving just this one?
It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm

And I hear them saying you'll never change things
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
But it's not the world that I am changing I'll do this
So this world will know that it will not change me

This heart still believes, the love and mercy still exist
While all the hatred rage and so many say
That love is all but pointless in madness such as this
It's like trying to stop a fire with the moisture from a kiss

And I hear them saying you'll never change things
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
But it's not the world that I am changing I'll do this
So this world will know that it will not change me

As long as one heart still holds on
Then hope is never really gone

I hear them saying you'll never change things
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
But it's not the world that I am changing I'll do this
So this world we know never changes me
What I'll do is so this world will know that it will not change me
