"Changing Of The Guard" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Changes of clothes and summer showers
Like changing the guard it only lasts for hours,
Wondering what and where did it go
Crying over nothing worth crying for
Once in a while, I still think about,
The smile on your face girl, the first time around,
I'm wondering what and who your doing it with
Crying over nothing, worth crying for, still

Just now and then, I still get it,
That same old feeling, I can't forget it
Wondering why and where did I go
Trying not to let them get to me so

Once in a while I just can't help it
It's that same old feeling and how I regret it,
Wondering why, I miss you so,
Crying over nothing worth it all

Baby please, if there's a chance,
Let's throw out the past and get something back,
I'm wondering why, did we part at all
Crying over nothing worth crying for,
Crying over nothing worth crying for,
Crying over nothing worth crying for.

    General CommentExcellent excellent excellent song. The meaning is pretty obvious. A relationship went wrong, and both parties are wondering what they're crying for and what exactly happened.
    I love it when Paul sings "I'm wondering why - did we part at all"... so much soul!

    General CommentCouldnt agree more. So much regret in the lyrics, losing someone who meant so much, his first love, and probably over some silly misunderstanding. We would all love to be in that situation, starting anew.
