CHANGING TUNES (Watts)

“You catch my riff?” she said
As we sat on her bed
She asked, “What are the thoughts in your head?”
And then she harmonized so sweetly, I could see a light instead

And suddenly I wasn’t just passing through
I was moving on
I was moving to

And that’s when I found myself surprised again
I found myself whole
I found myself new

And that day
It changed
Her tune
Rearranged
On me

Would she stay
Or estrange
I felt
Deranged
And lonely


Yes it’s like every tune you’ve ever heard before
It’s always moving round and round and through the chords
Will you let it linger, do you pretend?
Do you let go, and let it end?


“It’s not all you,” she cried
As we stood at the door
I asked, “How often do solos collide?”
And she just went silent, there was no melody anymore

And then I felt myself coming to
I was falling down
I was falling through
That’s when I found my joy replaced again

I saw a life lost
Life without you

And one day
That changed
Again it
Rearranged
On me

Felt betrayed
And exchanged
But so
Grateful
And happy


Yes it’s like every tune you’ve ever heard before
It’s always moving round and round and through the chords
Will you let it linger, do you pretend?
Do you let go, and let it end?


Only time will tell
Oh yes, only time will tell
Stay in time, it’s just as well
Things change often, best not dwell
‘Cause it’s only time that will tell

“Now it’s our life,” she sighed
As we watched the night sky
There were so many years left for us to spend
And she smiled at me so sweetly, I felt so lucky and so high

I had always feared it was her I might lose
Now she made life great
She made life move
And that’s when I found myself whole again

I found my life bright
Found my life renewed


Yes it’s like every tune you’ve ever heard before
It’s always moving round and round and through the chords
Yes it’s like every tune you’ve ever heard before
It’s always moving round and round and through the chords

Only time will tell
Oh yes, only time will tell
Stay in time, it’s just as well
Things change often, best not dwell
‘Cause it’s only time that will tell
