Song Lyric Sunday – Changing by The Airborne Toxic Event

This isn’t a very deep song, but it was the first one I thought of when I thought of the prompt.   I love the band and I fell in love with the video the moment I saw it.  I also relate to the lyrics because I don’t like change either.  I believe that’s why this move has started to make me feel so down.  We starting boxing things up today and everything is out of order and a mess.  It makes me feel so weird.

I believe we are constantly changing, so I don’t believe that anyone stays the same, but that doesn’t mean I don’t fight it like crazy.  I suppose that’s part of what makes people unhappy and miserable.  Perhaps I should be more accepting.

I hope you enjoy the song as much as I do.  I’ve just decided I’m going to add it to my playlist because it’s a fun, upbeat song I can pack boxes to while listening and trying to realize that change is happening whether I’m ready for it or not!

Changing by The Airborne Toxic Event
Written by The Airborne Toxic Event
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

All these buckets of rain, I’ve heard enough about.
You say that I lied.
I am a gentleman didn’t I ask for a place I could stay?
What were we both thinking?
The next part just got in the way.
You were just always talking about changing, changing
What if I was the same man, same man, the same I always was?

All these things that you say,
like I’ll forget about the mind-numbing games that you play.
I am a gentleman, didn’t I pay for every laugh every dime,
every bit every time and then you feed me some line.
I won’t hear one more word about changing, changing
Guess what I am the same man, same man, same man I’ve always been.

Days pass and turn into weeks, when we don’t even speak.
We just lay wide awake and pretend we’re asleep.
You go home alone and you’re checking your phone
and you’re looking at me like I’m something you own.

All these buckets of rain, you can’t forget about it, you say I never tried.
I am a gentleman, didn’t I answer every time that you call, pick you up when you fall
But you never listen at all
You were just always talking about changing, changing
Guess what I am the same man, same man.
Changing, changing
Guess what I am the same man, same man.
Changing, changing
Guess what I am the same man, same man.

  1. This was a new one to me. Upbeat sound. I have been thinking all about changes lately, so this prompt fits well. Thanks for sharing a new band, which is a lot of what this SLS is all about and I shall be back soon with my own contribution.
