"Some People Change" as written by and Dulaney/sellers/thrasher....
His old man was a rebel yeller
Bad boy to the bone
He'd say: "Can't trust that other fella."
He'd judge 'em by the tone of their skin
He was raised to think like his Dad
Narrow mind full of hate
On the road to nowhere fast
Till the grace of God got in the way
Then he saw the light an' hit his knees, an' cried, an' said a prayer
Rose up a brand new man
Left the old one right there

Here's to the strong
Thanks to the brave
Don't give up hope
Some people change
Against all odds
Against the grain
Love finds a way
Some people change

She was born with her mother's habit
You could say: "It's in her blood."
She hates that she's gotta have it
As she fills her glass up
An' she'd love to kill that bottle
But all she can think about
Is a, a better life, a second chance
An' everyone she's letting down
She throws that bottle down


Thank God for those who make it
Let them be the light

(Let them be the light)
(Some people change)


Some people change

(Some people change)

    General CommentThis song sends chills up my spine when I hear it. So many people have gone through so much because of some of the following: addiction, abuse, loss of a loved one, racism, etc. These things can consume a person and it is wonderful to see people come out of it and make that "change". I prayed that my brother would be one of those people...but I was wrong. He didn't make it. I remember one day I was praying, I wanted God to heal him (break him from his addiction to alcohol). I must admit that I had my doubts. I saw my brother go through many "bad days". Actually, the majority of his days were bad. Then one day, I felt God put this on my heart - "Stop waiting for him to 'mess up' and believe that I'm changing him." Wow, that hit me hard!!!
    When my brother died in a car accident last year, my heart ached and I couldn't understand why God would let that happen. I had a very personal relationship with God and I believed (and still believe) that He hears me when I pray, but I couldn't understand how Him taking my brother could be an answer to my prayer. Well, my brother is a better place now - and all those things are in the past...no more pain, no more sorrow, no more addiction - "changed" forever. When he was here, I prayed that he would be the "light" and help people see what God could do in one's life - so really, I understand what the words in this song mean. Some people change - and they come out of the predicament that they are in.

    General CommentThis song always reminds me of my grandfather. Everyone on his side of the family is a raging drunk and he was no exception. He was a military man and drank and fought and abused his many children. Many years later, he heard a priest speaking and realized what he was doing wrong. You can see in his eyes now that he's a different man. Some people really do change.
