"Changes" as written by Francis Eg White and Will Young....
Gotta shake myself
Up here
I should run away
Run away, run away
People say
Don't even go near
I can see the danger
I'm aware
I see the danger

If I go back once again
It's like
I learned nothing
Standing at the front
Of a queue
Heading for trouble

Hope it changes
Hope my life changes
Gets alright somehow
Oh
I'm waiting for tomorrow
I hope it changes
Can't you stay the same
Been out of luck
For so long
And I don't get much
So there's nothing
Much to lose

It's like a record
Going round
Yes, it's going round
Going round, going round
I know I should wanna
Take it off
But I find it hard
Why do I find it hard?

I used to have a vision
I was sitting
Somewhere up there
Looking down on myself
Doing right
For once in my life
It changes
Hope my life changes
Gets alright somehow
Oh
I'm waiting for tomorrow
I hope it changes
Can't you stay the same
Been out of luck
For so long
And I don't get much
So there's nothing
Much to lose

I just need a break
A little one
To get me up
To watch the sun
And hey
It's peaceful here

Hope it changes
Hope my life changes
Gets alright somehow
Oh
I'm waiting for tomorrow
Hope it changes
Can't you stay the same
(Can't you stay the same)
Been out of luck
For so long
(Can't you stay the same)
Don't get much
So there's nothing
Much to lose
Changes
Oh
I'm waiting for tomorrow
Hope it changes
Can't you stay the same
Been out of luck
For so long

    General CommentThis song makes me think of my friend. It's a nice song to listen to when your going through a transition.

    General CommentThis is literally where my life is right now and when I first heard the song I almost lost it. I'm actually looking at finding a job outside of the US where I live because I want something to change (dead end job, distracted friends) and this song perfectly sums up that feeling especially "I don’t get much so there’s nothing much to lose" Does anyone have any author credits?

    General CommentThat's also exactly what I felt like last year, jusicewithjunior! So I took a chance and quit my job and moved to the other side of the country, because taking that chance would have been a lot better than if things were to stay the same :) It's great to have a song you can relate to.

    General Comment"Been out of love for so long"

    I always thought it was "Been out of luck for so long." Ah well, great song..and totally feeling like this right now. I'm in my last year of uni and kinda restless. Definitely need a change.

    General CommentI have something of a soft spot for Will Young (I tend to listen to heavy metal, but guilty pleasures and all that)
    The one lyric in this song that really stand out to me is-

    I used to have a vision, I was sitting somewhere up there
    Looking down on myself doing right

    This song just describes the daily grind of life to a tee, and that one day that hopefully it will all seem a little less painful and a bit brighter
