Changes

Album: Odessey and Oracle (1968)
  • I knew her when summer was her crown
    And autumn sad
    How brown her eyes

    Now
    See her walk by
    Peppermint coat
    Button-down clothes
    Buttoned-up high
    Diamonds and stones
    Hang from her hand
    Isn't she smart?
    Isn't she grand?

    I knew her when summer was her crown
    And autumn sad
    How brown her eyes

    I knew her when winter was her cloak
    And spring her voice
    She spoke to me

    Now
    Silver and gold
    Strawberry clothes
    Money will buy
    Something to hold
    See in her eyes
    Nothing will last
    Like emerald stones
    And platinum [?]

    I knew her when summer was her crown
    And autumn sad
    How brown her eyes

    I knew her when winter was her cloak
    And spring her voice
    She spoke to me

    Now
    Silver and gold
    Strawberry clothes
    Money will buy
    Something to hold
    See in her eyes
    Nothing will last
    Like emerald stones
    And platinum [?]

    I knew her when summer was her crown
    And autumn sad
    How brown her eyes

    I knew her when winter was her cloak
    And spring her voice
    She spoke to me

    I knew her when summer was her crown
    And autumn sad
    How brown her eyesWriter/s: Francis Anthony Eg White, William Robert Young

  • Kathleen from Clinton, MdThe word after platinum, where you have a [?], is clasp. The line is "Like emerald stones and platinum clasp." I LOVE this song. It's one of my favorites from this album.
  • Chloe from St. Louis, MoThis album is so horribly underrated! I could listen to it all day; its a masterpiece on the same level as Sergeant Pepper.
