Lyrics

Change
Music and Lyrics by Rob Oswin and Ian MacDonald



Today's come and gone?
But our father's, fathers' battle still rages on.
On a wing and a prayer,
Step out on a limb, go on, step out if you dare

There's gonna be Change?
Comin' down.
There's gonna be Change?
Look around.

Yesterday's so far away?
But like a father's son who's fallen, Memories remain.
But the pain is gonna fade?
So reflect upon the life you've lived and the love you made.

There's gonna be Change?
Comin' down.
There's gonna be Change?
Look around.

Her Majesty recites the call,
We follow,
And many fall,
The tragedy of modern man,
Is yet to be.. so we'll do what we can.

This time tomorrow?Strike up the band
Because the son we sent away is coming home a man
With his gun on his shoulder and his hat in his clutch
The war is finally over and in God we trust?

There's gonna be Change?
Comin' down.
There's gonna be Change?
Look around.
