"I've Changed" as written by and Joshua David Joplin....
I wanted perfection from every song I've ever sung
But that was wrong
And I wanted something from every person I've ever loved
But that was wrong

[Chorus]
And I've changed, I've changed
I've reconsidered everything
I'm fine now, I'm fine now
I laid the barrel in my mouth
And everything I thought before
I won't think anymore
I've changed, I've changed, I've changed

I wanted to be the greatest at everything
But I can't be
And I wanted to be exempt from temptation
But I can't be

[Chorus]

And I wanted your love to be ever lasting
But it isn't
I wanted life to be an easier proposition
But it isn't

[Chorus]

    General CommentI think that this song is self-explanatory, but I sometimes get the impression that it is supposed to be ironic.

    General CommentSometimes when people are young they are idealists. They have unreasonably high expectations.

    As they get older, however, they see and experience the real world with its heartbreak and difficulty and disappointment, and they become wiser.

    This song is about being at that point, and realizing that happiness is possible anyway.
