"A Change Is Gonna Come (Sam Cooke cover)" as written by and Sam Cooke....
Anything we should know about your change?
I was born by the river in a little tent
Oh and just like the river I've been running ever since
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

It's been too hard living but I'm afraid to die
'Cause I don't know what's out there beyond the sky
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come

Well, I go to the movies and I go downtown
Well, some people don't want me to hang around
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come

And then I go to see my brother
And I ask him to help me please
And he winds up knockin' me
Back down on my knees

There been times that I thought I couldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, change gon' come, change gon' come

    General Commentthis song is pure hope in my eyes. It's about this guy whose alone..and he seems to not be wanted anywhere even in his family..his brother is not supporting and feeds into hopelessness but this guy remains focused and completely dependent on his beleif that change is coming..when it's so clearly not. This is beautiful in that most people who have everything in the world don't have that much beleif in something but this guy who has nothing has to beleive in it because thats the only thing that gets him through.
