Changes

Lyrics by Duane Hewitt

Tonight enlightened stars
Cry out a reverie—
Below a jaded moon
Hides all she knows
The night who lay so still
Carries a secret by her will
Knowing that past the lonely hill
Something has changed

An early rain begun
Are the trees laughing?
Or crying for a day
They fear to come?
The dawning wants to know
Frightened by rain
Like tears that flow
Knowing that on the earth below
Something has changed

(Chorus)
On my knees
Something stirs in me
Cold winds blow as
Night grows old but
Something warm touches me—

Tonight I feel the wind
Rushing to meet me
With warnings of a change
I’m soon to know
The morning turns to run
Frightened by what has yet to come
Fearing to see a soul undone
It turns away

(Chorus)
All I see
Bares a sign for me
All alone with
All I’ve known
I feel the change
Over me—

Tonight I feel the sky
Heavy upon me
Forebodings of a change
I’m soon to know
When dawning lifts her head
Lighting the path that I once tread
Guiding me down the road ahead
Changes will come

When dawning lifts her head
Lighting the path that I once tread
What will I find that lies ahead?—
Let the change now come!—
