Change Isn't Easy

lyrics

I've let the cold get right into my toes
I'm in the summers heat there's a chill in my bones
I feel the sun swinging in between dead trees
Like the grim reaper conducts a symphony.


There's a Glass when I'm starin' at your face
There's unease in my stomach tied in lace
I've got a couple cigarettes behind my ear
And I just want them to disappear.


Change isn't easy
But nothing is
I got 100 percent
Of what's mine
Can God please remove a couple of locks
Cause I need to find a way to break out of this box.

There's firefighter right around the bend
and he's got enough nerve to not know when
The girls gonna be comin' down the pole
He's feels a jumping bean it's in his secret soul.


Dismiss these words mamma
And I'll never be grateful again

He plays his guitar like a Santana
But when are those riffs gonna end?

I've let the heat reach my fiery lips
There's no room for a breeze, just noise
There's a fight happening right down the hallway
And I'm going to referee these boys
And I'm going to referee these boys


Change isn't easy
But nothing is
And I've got 100 percent
Of what's mine
Can God please remove a couple of locks
Cause I need to find a way to break out of this box.

Out
of this
box!
