"Roll With The Changes" as written by and K. Cronin....
As soon as you are able, woman I am willing
To make the break that we are on the brink of
My cup is on the table, my love is spilling
Waiting here for you to take and drink of

So if you're tired of the same old story
Oh, turn some pages
I will be here when you are ready
To roll with the changes, yeah, yeah

I knew it had to happen, felt the tables turnin'
Got me through my darkest hour
I heard the thunder clappin', felt the desert burnin'
Until you poured on me like a sweet sun shower

So if you're tired of the same old story
Oh, turn some pages
I will be here when you are ready
To roll with the changes, ooh

So if you're tired of the same old story
Oh baby, turn some pages
I will be here when you are ready
To roll with the changes, baby
Roll with the changes
Ah, you know you know you know you got to

(Keep on rollin') Oh yeah
(Keep on rollin') Ooh roll with the changes
Keep on rollin' (Keep on rollin', keep on rollin')
Oh, now roll with the changes, oh, baby

(Keep on rollin') Oh, babe (Keep on rollin')
Oh, you got to learn to roll with the changes
Got to, got to, got to, got to keep on rollin'
(Keep on rollin'), got to learn to, got to learn to
Got to learn to roll

(Keep on rollin', keep on rollin', oooh)
(Keep on rollin', keep on rollin', oooh)
(Keep on rollin', keep on rollin', oooh)
(Keep on rollin', keep on rollin', oooh, aah)

    General CommentOn the surface, it's a guy telling a girl he's tired of the way things are, he loves her and acknowledges she's not ready to make the same changes that he is, and is willing to wait for her to come around.

    On a deeper level, it's saying that the things that stand in your way in life don't have to stop you from achieving what you want. You have the power to change whatever you need to in your life and that nothing need hold you back.

    Along with 'Right Now' by Van Halen, one of the most inspirational songs I have ever heard...

    General CommentA whole lot of meaning and look at my signature. This song is who they are and my faorite truck dad had in the 1950's was a REO. I live 38 miles from REO, Indiana.

    The organ/key board tapping is unreal and I get goose bumps when all this art work is heard around two to three times a say 130 miles South of Champaign/ Urbana, Illinois. One reply was just waiting for another for this super timeless hit!

    General Commentthis song is about Kevin telling this woman, that if she wants to change up to something new and exciting, she should try him, and roll with whatever comes along in the relationship.

    General CommentDon't ever let life get you down. This is the most hopeful song I have ever heard. I am working at Post Pentagon Row for construction. This building was near completion just before September 11, 2001 and the head maintenance supervisor was on the roof when the plane hit the pentagon 1/4 mile away. The shockwaves knocked him down. All construction equipment was taken from here to the Pentagon to help our country. We get knocked down, we get back up and fight another day. This was a wonderful choice by GM in the days after /11.

    General CommentThis is a song about a guy wanting to express his love, and giving his lover a choice. It is about a physical relationship that has turned to something more. His lady has been in bad relationship after bad relationship. He is telling her that if she wants to break the cycle, she needs to look in a new direction. That direction is him.

    He is not being forceful. He is laying down the facts the way he see's them.

    "So if your tired of the same ol' story, turn some pages". "I'll be here when you are ready, to roll with the changes".

    He is saying.. "Stop banging on the same door". "I may not be the right one, but I'm different from all the other guys you have dated". "Roll with the changes

    My InterpretationI think the Christian imagery (a cup overflowing, rain in the desert) is too obvious to ignore. Viewed from that perspective, the first verse is God speaking to a woman - knock and the door shall be opened unto you.

    The second verse is a straightforward testimonial - I'm a church musician, and I would play this song in a contemporary service anytime.
