Musical Interludes: Change

Tracy Chapman is one of the most amazing combination singers, musicians, and songwriters of our time in my opinion. Her vocals are just stunning as you feel the emotions flow from her voice into your soul. Her beautiful arrangements are haunting and melodious. Her lyrics compel us to think about life and the world as she and we see it and challenge us to define what it is we want to achieve for the future. She is a true master of the music industry.

“Change”

If you knew that you would die today
If you saw the face of God and Love
Would you change?
Would you change?
If you knew that love can break your heart
When you’re down so low you cannot fall
Would you change?
Would you change?

How bad, how good does it need to get?
How many losses, how much regret?
What chain reaction
What cause and effect
Makes you turn around
Makes you try to explain
Makes you forgive and forget
Makes you change
Makes you change

If you knew that you would be alone
Knowing right, but being wrong
Would you change?
Would you change?
If you knew that you would find a truth
That brings a pain that can’t be soothed
Would you change?
Would you change?

How bad how, good does it need to get?
How many losses, how much regret?
What chain reaction
What cause and effect
Makes you turn around
Makes you try to explain
Makes you forgive and forget
Makes you change
Makes you change

Are you so upright you can’t be bent?
if it comes to blows
Are you so sure you won’t be crawling?
If not for the good why risk falling?
Why risk falling?

If everything you think you know
Makes your life unbearable
Would you change?
Would you change?
If you’d broken every rule and vow
And hard times come to bring you down
Would you change?
Would you change?

If you knew that you would die today
If you saw the face of God and Love
Would you change?
Would you change?
Would you change?
Would you change?
If you saw the face of God and Love
If you saw the face of God and Love
Would you change?
Would you change?
