I was born with a woman’s heart
I was made unashamed I got strength from the start
Always on the outside and always with my ribs stretched apart

I tried to tell her I don’t know who I belong to
Sometimes the heavens seem to crash all around you
She swallowed soft in the silence and told me she knew who

And I said
Everything Changes and Nothing Changes
Your lips got new skin but your kiss never ages
And Everything Changes and Nothing Changes
I’m lonely and I’m not alone

The taste of whiskey on Christmas night
In a bar by the lake all but empty inside
And I chewed my straw, we got drunk and smoke stirred the lights

And these hipster girls bit it harder than me
Spinning records in the back while they danced and they’d sing
I once loved this song but it’s attached to a place that’s escaping me

And it seems like Everything Changes and nothing Changes
From mother to daughter the slaughter still rages
And everything Changes and Nothing Changes
I’m lonely and I’m not alone

I’ll shudder insignificant beneath the black of this night sky
In the void of God and these sidewalks of ice
And I’ll be down on my hands and my knees
Trying to read the brail in the pavement of these wet city streets

I think she knew before I did
When she found me on my 18th birthday
Blacked out on the boardwalk
The waves crashing in the dark beyond
And on the sand there she saved me
But my boys they betrayed me
I broke down in the bathroom at Hotel Roosevelt

And Everything Changes and Nothing Changes
She said there’s gotta be a word for that in some other language
And everything changes and nothing changes
I was blind, and her beauty’s so patient
And everything changes it changes nothing
The blood is cleaned up I’m still scratching at something
And everything changes and nothing changes
I’m trembling down to the bone
Cause I’m lonely and I’m not alone
Yeah yeah yeah
I’m lonely and I’m not alone
