"Yes I'm Changing" as written by and Kevin Parker....
I was raging, it was late
In the world my demons cultivate
I felt the strangest emotion but it wasn't hate, for once
Yes I'm changing, yes I'm gone
Yes I'm older, yes I'm moving on
And if you don't think it's a crime you can come along, with me
Life is moving, can't you see
There's no future left for you and me
I was holding and I was searching endlessly
But baby, now there's nothing left that I can do so
So don't be blue
There is another future waiting there for you
I saw it different, I must admit
I caught a glimpse, I'm going after it
They say people never change, but that's bullshit, they do
Yes I'm changing, can't stop it now
And even if I wanted I wouldn't know how
Another version of myself I think I found, at last
And I can't always hide away
Curse indulgence and despise the fame
There's a world out there and it's calling my name
And it's calling yours, girl it's calling yours too
It's calling yours too, it's calling yours too, it's calling yours too
It's calling out for you

Arise and walk, come through
Someone beyond that door is calling out for you
Arise and walk, come through
It's calling out for you
Arise and walk, come through
Someone beyond that door is calling out for you

    Song ComparisonThe meaning of the song is very clear, but, its like if a man who is now in a stage of knowing himself, its like an after "Feels like we only go backwards" man.

    My InterpretationDepending on how I feel on any particular day, I interpret this song in one of two ways:

    1) The narrator is leaving his significant other because he feels held back by her. He has been struggling with this decision for a while ("my demons cultivate"), but is finally at peace with it ("but it wasn't hate for once") and he is trying to encourage her to look at the bright side ("you can come along", "it's calling yours too"), that she can find "someone beyond that door" to make her happier than he can. He wants her to be happy about it and not try to convince him to stay ("even if I wanted I wouldn't know how"). He was a different person when they got together and he realizes that the person he is now does not fit with what she wants. I think this is the more obvious interpretation.

    2) The narrator's significant other is unhappy with who he is, and he is telling her that he is changing into the person that she wants. Again, he has been struggling with it for a while. But instead of struggling with the decision to leave, he has been struggling with his own identity and with her unhappiness with him. He is saying "There's no future left for you and me" as we have been, we need to reinvent ourselves so that "you can come along, with me". Who he was has been making her "blue", but there is "another future" if she stays with him, a future where he is different and she is happy. She is trying to leave him ("I saw it different, I must admit") and he is trying to convince her that the "he" she wants to leave isn't here anymore; if she just waits a little longer he will be fully changed into a man she wants. She has told him who she wants and he can get there intermittently ("I caught a glimpse, I'm going after it"), and soon he will be there permanently. He is the "someone beyond that door" and this song is him calling out for her. Maybe that is just me being optimistic, but I like the second interpretation more.
