"Changes" as written by and Roland Orzabal....
Everything changes in a way
Makes me smaller than I ought to be
All around me instigates
I know I'll never be the same
But everything changes a part of me
Breaks and falls where I cannot reach
And I weep for the old days
Where I thought that everything would be the same

Everything changes all around
Dizzy from change when I hit the ground
Lower and lower I drown
Stuck in the darkness not to be found
But everything changes and it's bad
Destruction of my life in my path
Backing away wishing to fly
But here I stand between love and suicide

Everything changes
There's no place for me
Turning the pages
Means destroying everything that's me
Everyone places
Themselves at Time's feet
But I will not make myself a servant
Are all the changes worth it?

Everything changes everyday
I wish there was any other way
I lose friends and family
Their voices will not let me be
Everyone's an enemy
I close my eyes to believe
It's the times of the old days
And open to remember that world has gone away

Everything changes
There's no place for me
Turning the pages
Means destroying everything that's me
Everyone places
Themselves at Time's feet
Compromise is not something change considers
When it comes to me
Everything changes
Curse the powers that be
Turning the pages
Is like burning my treasured beliefs
Everyone places
Themselves to be
Just another fucking servant
Are all the changes worth it?

And everything that I speak
Is always too weak
Nobody'll listen
Nobody'll try
Nobody'll listen
Nobody'll try
And change is the reason I'm afraid
That I was ever being made
In a world filled with fury
In a world in a hurry

I was too naive for trust
And, in time, that element began to rust
And I had a love that I lost
But I guess you can blame change for that toss
But everything changes in a way
Makes me smaller than I ought to be
All around me instigates
I know I'll never be the same

Everything changes
There's no place for me
Turning the pages
Means destroying everything that's me
Everyone places
Themselves at Time's feet
Compromise is not something change considers
When it comes to me
Everything changes
Curse the powers that be
Turning the pages
Is like burning my treasured beliefs
Everyone places
Themselves to be
Just another fucking servant
The changes are not worth it
No, the changes are not worth it
The changes are never worth it
