First day, I was lost at sea
I had nothing to eat
But I thought home was near
I found myself in an
Unfamiliar place
My first night
On an unfamiliar tide

Second day I woke up
Had almost forgotten
I had never thought to
Try on different colored robes
And I was face down in the in the sand
And I was lucky to be alive
Lucky to have survived

And on the third day
I was weak so I
Collapsed on the beach
And I died of hunger
And when they found me
They saw how much that
I had changed, I had changed
I had

I have changed, I have
I have changed, I have
I have changed, I have
I have changed, I have

    My Interpretationman, i think wronggirl's probably right, but i listen to this song and i just think of myself, shouting silently at the world, ya know? i've chnaged! i'm different! and then, other times, i think it's just me saying it to myself, telling myself that i'm different than i used to be, i'm not the same person. but regardless of that, everytime i listen to this song, i have an incredible feeling of melancholy, i get a case of the soudades. it's almost like a lament at times long past, things that are no more. i've changed, i wish i could go back to who i was, what i was. hmm, this is hard to cast my feelings on this song into form...

    General CommentAm I allowed to feel surprised that there are no comments to this song yet? Simply effin' gorgeous; I tend to go into a sort of trance everytime it comes on the stereo or ol' headphones.

    Delicately tragic...I'll just say that and skip the literal interpretation, whatever it may be.

    My OpinionI relate to this song so much. Absolutely amazing, and apparently underrated.
