Song Description

Long description: Go Change the World is a look back and a look forward for this baby boomer whose dreams of changing the world during the Woodstock era dissolved into "the establishment." Years later, she looks back but also looks ahead and listens to her future self.

Story Behind the Song

Story behind the song: Go Change the World started out to be the story of a hippie idealist looking sadly at lost dreams and the perception of a wasted life. As I worked on it, however, the song reinvented itself into a lively, spirited and hope-filled call to action.

GO CHANGE THE WORLD
LYRICS
2006 Carlene A. Thissen

Where did I go? What did I do?
Did I get lost? Are you here too?
Use your eyes, and your ears,
How did you feel, back in those years?

Who do I see? Her hair is gray
Could that be me some future day?
When she speaks to me what does she say?

REFRAIN ? (She says) Go change the world, it?s not too late.
Age doesn?t matter ? it?s a brand new day
Time matters- start today.

VERSE 2
I can't stay there, I must live here
And find my way, That's clear
I see the truth, forget your age
This is our time - this is our stage.

Who will know peace, because you exist?
Who will sleep easier because you lived?
Do what comes easy- use your gifts.

REFRAIN - Go change the world, it's not too late.
Age doesn't matter ? it's a brand new day
Time matters- start today.

KEY CHANGE

Where are we now? What can we do?
Just watch for signs Then follow through.
The garden blooms, just like back then
Lights in trees will glow again

If we just follow signs, we?ll know the way
Age doesn't matter, it's a brand new day.
Time matters - start today.

REFRAIN - Go change the world, it's not too late.
Age doesn't matter- it's a brand new day
Time matters - start today.
