Time Can Change

As the beginning passes by and the end draws near,

I realize that I have got nothing to fear.

The passage of time can't ever be changed,

But what can, can drive you insane.

My strength can increase or fade away,

But my thoughts about you haunt me to this very day.

My intelligence can grow high or low,

But there is something that I want you to know.

---

Time can change how I feel,

But it doesn't change the fact that you know me for real.

Time can change the way that I look,

But still you can read me like an open book.

Time for you can go fast or slow,

But please, listen to me I just want you to know.

---

I'm just trying to find my place in this world,

Just shouting out my feelings to all the boys and the girls.

But the turmoil in my head is always in motion,

One thought is a tiny drop in a vast ocean.

The currents go from the east to the west,

My qualities range from the worst to the best.

From the time it takes to sing this song,

My former self will be long gone.

---

Time can change how I feel,

But it doesn't change the fact that you know me for real.

Time can change the way that I look,

But still you can read me like an open book.

Time for you can go fast or slow,

But please listen to me I just want you to know.

---

The next time you see me I won't be the same,

I'll be a different person under the same name.

A different hermit crab in the same shell,

An angel from heaven or a demon from hell.

Time can change the way that I feel,

But it doesn't change the fact that you know me for real.

Time can change the way that I look,

But you still read me like an open book.
