"I Swear I'll Change" as written by and John Franck Andrew Whiting....
Seeing everyone's true face
Makes me wish they would keep their masks on
'Cause I don't wanna know, who you really are
I thought you would have learned your lesson by now

True face exposed, dark motives in the mind
Was listening too scary for you?
You haven't changed, you never will (you never will)

You and I will never be the same,
You say you try, but you never change
You can hide, and say you're not to blame
I thought you have learned your lesson by now

I was wrong
Something in me still has love for you
I don't know why
Everyone is not as good as they seem
Trust in me, trust in me.

I never knew that lying came so natural to you
'Cause I can't bear to see, the man you're gonna be
I thought you would have learned your lesson by now

You and I will never be the same,
You say you try, but you never change
You can hide, and say you're not to blame
I thought you have learned your lesson by now

You and I will never be the same,
You say you try, but you never change
You can hide, and say you're not to blame
I thought you have learned your lesson by now

    General CommentThese lyrics are similar to Your Woman by white town. A gay man is in love with a straight man, and the straight man simply doesn't like him back, and he tries to make him straight. It obviously can't work according to the chorus, and according to the facts of life. It's interesting how a lot of attack attack songs are either about Jesus our Homosexuality. Or at least it seems like it.

    General CommentI'm sorry, I had it a little wrong last time. A straight women is in love with a gay man, and she discoveres he's gay. She tries 2 make him change but he obviously can't. So in the chorus she says it's all his fault that he's gay, and no matter how hard he tries, he'll never be straight (which is true). So basically it's a lot like Your women by White town but the women is the straight one, and in Your women, the man is the straight one.

    General Commentstraight from the AP article on the track by track of the album:

    "This song is one of my personal favorites on the album. I like that it has an eerie overtone to it. The title is a familiar excuse we've heard before, and the song is about how sometimes you wish you didn't get to know people as well as you do. Once the mask is taken off and you see that person's faults, it's awful knowing that they don't have any hope to change them. Yet still, part of you has hope."

    General CommentI'm not really sure about this but I think he's saying that he's seen this girls true face and he never knew that everything she was saying was just a lie. By saying, "Seeing everyone's true face Makes me wish they would keep their masks on Cause I don't wanna know, who you really are I thought you would have learned your lesson by now" he's saying that he liked her better when she was pretending to be someone else. When he says, "You and I will never be the same, You say you try, but you never change You can hide, and say you're not to blame I thought you have learned your lesson by now" he's saying that she can try and beg him to come back and say she'll change and become someone else but he knows that it's just another lie and they can never be with each other.
