"Maybe I Can Change" as written by Timothy James Rice-oxley, Tom Chaplin and Richard David Hughes....
Now, will it ever be the same again?
And it will it ever feel right?
The false start, then I try to twist your heart
But I supposed it always knows

I know how I let you down
But maybe I can change this time around
This heart and these hands are mine
Maybe I can change this time


Soon, I'm gonna be an older man
And I will struggle to remember
The blank space when I tried to see your face
The blinded eye, I can't replace

I know how I let you down
But maybe I can change this time around
This heart and these hands are mine
Maybe I can change this time


Oh why can't we go back again?
Rain, rain, will you ever go away?
Come back again some other day


I know how I let you down
But maybe I can change this time around
This heart and these hands are mine
Maybe I can change this time


But I've tired you out with the things I do
But I can change, and change you too
But still somehow, I have to say
"I'm on my way"
Gone

    General CommentI think Tom composed this one in response to Tim's writing of "Hamburg Song" and/or "Broken Toy"... not my absolute favorite b-side from the Under The Iron Sea era, but it's a good song all the same

    General CommentYea, dustfinger that's what I think also.
    I actually think that's exactly what it is. Tom Chaplin did write this in a response to Tim writing songs about him.
    And I love how they do this, what a great band I LOVE KEANE!

    General CommentI think it is very moving that the singer and the songwriter have such a close relationship. I hope, they will be able to solve the current problems they have with each other.

    As I only have the two albums of Keane (I don't own any singles) I have never listened to the song yet but still I think the lyrics are very touching.

    It's only that I don't understand the last three lines:
    "But still somehow, I have to say
    'I'm on my way'
    Gone"

    What does he mean by that? Can anybody help?
