I Can't Change It

Album: Once in a Blue Moon (1973)
  • My friends can't find some things I say
    Must be the way I say those things
    My friends can't find some things I do
    Must be the way I do those things
    I can't change it
    But I'm trying to do right

    I used to steal I used to fall
    Was I wrong I can't recall
    I stole in love but all in all
    Was I wrong I don't recall
    I can't change it
    But I'm trying to do right

    Is it bad to look inside yourself and decide to go
    To someone who can show the way complete
    Are you glad to lose the doubts you thought would never go
    When them inside hallucinations had you beat

    My own true love has gone away
    What can I say she left that day
    The moon still shines a different way
    What can I say
    She left that day
    I can't change it but I'm waiting patiently
