Lyrics

The Change

Written By: Justin Hettinga

Please go
I’m nervous when you’re here
Struck dumb and can’t contain it

Please go
Leave me here alone
These walls will watch me fake it

One leaf to lie there
One stem surrounded by the sky

One breath to raise it
One breath to put it on its high

Come drink to new beginnings
Come drink this night away
Come drink to greet tomorrow as it turns today

Come drink for any reason
Come drink you’ll be okay
Come drink away your troubles tell them they can’t stay

I will be gone
I will be loneliness
I will be strong
Cuz I’m not here for dying

I will be me
I will stand tall again
I will be free
From pain and fear and dying

Please stay
We’ll travel back in time
Let’s act like I’m not leaving

Please stay
An hour to ourselves
These minutes are decaying

One leaf is wilting
One frost disguised within the night

One breath to raise it
One breath then winters harsher bite

Come drink to new beginnings
Come drink this night away
Come drink to greet tomorrow as it turns today

Come drink for any reason
Come drink you’ll be okay
Come drink away your troubles tell them they can’t stay

I will be gone
I will be loneliness
I will be strong
Cuz I’m not here for dying

I will be me
I will stand tall again
I will be free
From pain and fear and dying
