CHANGE

Writer: Holly Knight

 

People talking
and they’re saying that you’re leaving
You’re so unhappy
with the way that you’ve been living
We always wish for money
We always wish for fame
We think we have the answers
Some things ain’t ever gonna

Change (change)
It doesn’t matter who you are
It’s all the same (change)
What’s in your heart will never change

Look in the mirror
And you see how you’ve been taken
You won’t surrender
But now your heart is breakin’
We always wish for money
We always wish for fame
We think we have the answers
Some things ain’t ever gonna

Change (change)
It doesn’t matter who you are
It’s all the same (change)
What’s in your heart will never change

Do you remember
When you got your lucky break
You’re looking back now
And it seems like a mistake
We always wish for money
We always wish for fame
We think we have the answers
Some things ain’t ever gonna

Change (change)
It doesn’t matter who you are
It’s all the same (change)
What’s in your heart will never change
It’s only change (change)
It doesn’t matter who you are
It’s all the same (change)
What’s in your heart will never change
It doesn’t matter who you are
It’s all the same (change)
What’s in your heart will stay the same
You ain’t gonna
You ain’t gonna change (what’s in your heart)
You ain’t gonna change
Doesn’t matter who you are

 
Lyrics

1. CHANGE
 

Originally I wrote Change for my band Spider’s second record. Soon after we recorded it, John Waite recorded it for his solo album, Ignition, and Neil Geraldo, Pat Benatar’s guitarist, producer and husband produced it. In a classic case of six degrees of separation, Patty Smyth sung backing vocals on the tune, all this before I met or wrote songs for Pat or Patty.  Personally, I love John’s version better than Spider, it’s a much more edgy rock track. Change is definitely one for my top ten list of favorite songs that I wrote. -HK

  • CHANGE was featured in the movie and soundtrack for Visionquest
