  • There's something in the wind
    I can feel it blowing in
    It's coming in softly
    On the wings of a bomb
    There's something in the wind
    I can feel it blowing in
    It's coming in hotly
    And it's coming in strong

    Lately I've been thinking it's just someone else's job to care
    Who am I to sympathize when no one gave a damn?
    I've been thinking it's just someone else's job to care
    Who am I to wanna try but

    Change is a powerful thing
    People are powerful beings
    Trying to find the power in me to be faithful
    Change is a powerful thing
    I feel it coming in me
    Maybe by the time this song is done
    I'll be able
    To be honest, capable
    Of holding you in my arms without letting you fall when I don't feel beautiful
    Or stable
    Maybe it's enough to just be where we are because

    Everytime that we run
    We don't know what it's from
    Now we finally slow down
    We feel close to it
    There's a change gonna come
    I don't know where or when
    But whenever it does
    We'll be here for it

    There's something in the wind
    I can feel it blowing in
    It's coming in softly
    On the wings of a song
    There's something in the water
    I can taste it turning sour
    It's bitter, I'm coughing
    But now it's in my blood

    Lately I've been thinking it's just someone else's job to care
    Who am I to sympathize when no one gave a damn?
    I've been thinking it's just someone else's job to care
    'Cause who am I to wanna try but

    Change is a powerful thing
    People are powerful beings
    Trying to find the power in me to be faithful
    Change is a powerful thing
    I feel it coming in me
    Maybe by the time this song is done
    I'll be able
    To be honest, capable
    Of holding you in my arms without letting you fall when I don't feel beautiful
    Or stable
    Maybe it's enough to just be where we are because

    Everytime that we run
    We don't know what it's from
    Now we finally slow down
    We feel close to it
    There's a change gonna come
    I don't know where or when
    But whenever it does
    We'll be here for it

    Hmmm
    Yeah, whenever it does
    We'll be here for it
    Hmmm
    Whenever it does
    We'll be here for it Writer/s: ELIZABETH GRANT, RICK NOWELS
