"Changes in the Weather" as written by and William Benoit....
Closing in on happiness 'till my thoughts turn the other way
I'm chasing a dream that spins me out of control
Simplistic intuitions free me from the grip of society
Don't wanna live my life like it's a movie roll

But I feel it in the air
On the highest mountaintops
Just wanna hold that breath forever
I'm dancin' in the clouds
With my feet still on the ground
I couldn't say a dream could get much better
And then the rain comes pouring down
And you wake up to the sound
Of changes in the weather

I close my eyes for a moment
I'm taken to that timeless zone
I'm feeling lost and helpless in a sea without a breeze
The unobtrusive feelings are slowly catching up to me
I wish the wind would bring me someone so I wasn't so alone

But I feel it in the waves
As they crash on over me
Just wanna float out here forever
With a six-string in my hand
And my feet buried in the sand
I couldn't say a dream could get much better
And then you watch the sun go down
While you wake up to the sound
Of changes in the weather

Oh oh yeah

When the lights have all gone out
Thoughts of the day get tossed about
The images you see
Become a false reality
And your dreams become the pictures
And those pictures fit together
Flashing scenes of pious hopes
And things you can't remember
Running towards the water
A silence fills the air
Happiness overcomes you
'Till you realize you're not there

But I feel it in the air
On the highest mountaintop
Just wanna hold that breath forever
I'm dancin' in the clouds
With my feet still on the ground
I couldn't say a dream could get much better
And as you watch the sun go down
You wake up to the sound
Of changes in the weather
Changes in the weather

    General CommentI absolutely love this song! I can't believe no one has commented on it yet! Barefoot Truth is an amazing band!

    As to the meaning of the song, I'm afraid I'm at a loss.

    Perhaps he doesn't want to live his life like a dream, a fantasy, a "movie roll". I guess he just wants that simplistic, natural life--REAL life and not all the fake and unreal aspects like in Hollywood or on TV.

    I'm not entirely sure about the actual meaning, but I guess this is a start. Does anyone else have any ideas?

    My InterpretationI think "The Ocean" is somewhat of a response to this song. Here he seems unsatisfied with life and resorts to dreams, but then realizes that those dreams aren't real. In Ocean, it seems as if Will is saying that life is good as is.

    "Every now and then
    I sit and I think about this life
    And I say "yeah, how could anyone want more?"

    I got the notion put your body in motion
    Come on now we'll float away on the ocean
    There's a lot of candy in this store."
