Song Description

Don't wait for change to come. Make something happen.

Story Behind the Song

Guy down on his luck comes across a wise man who opens his eyes to stop waiting for good things to happen & finally make his own luck.


BE THE CHANGE (J. D'Agostino, M. Bennett) 732-241-6188

I lost my job and took a walk
Tried to clear my head
Met an old man sitting on a bench
He made some room and soon became a friend
When I could use a friend

Told him I'd been trying, but can't seem to find my way
Tired of waiting for my breaks to come
Tired of waiting for my luck to change
He just smiled and said

Sometimes you gotta roll things back and start at one again
Ride that bumpy road until it bends
Find the strength to give one more percent
When the day is at it's darkest
Gotta look to where your heart is
Yeah when life won't go your way
Be the change

I stood there for a moment,
Thought about what I just heard
When he got up, shook my hand, wished me luck, then walked away
Without a word, it was all a blur

So later on that night I sat my family down
Said I think the man upstairs
Is trying to tell me to turn my life around
Been upside down


So c'mon rooster, I'm waitin' on your crow
Startin' tomorrow, Gonna start puttin' on a show


Yeah when life won't go your way
Be the change
