"Blind Melon"  "Change"

"Blind Melon" "Change"

A Poem by The High Poet

This song means so much to me, I would like to share it with anyone who has not heard it. I am posting the lyrics and the song. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do. He was a true poet

Written and preformed by "Blind Melon"
I don't feel the suns comin' out today 

its staying in, its gonna find another way. 

As I sit here in this misery, I don't 

think I'll ever see the sun from here. 

And oh as I fade away, 

they'll all look at me and say, and they'll say, 

Hey look at him! I'll never live that way. 

But that's okay 

they're just afraid to change. 

When you feel your life ain't worth living 

you've got to stand up and 

take a look around you then a look way up to the sky. 

And when your deepest thoughts are broken, 

keep on dreaming boy, cause when you stop dreamin' it's time to die. 

And as we all play parts of tomorrow, 

some ways will work and other ways we'll play. 

But I know we all can't stay here forever, 

so I want to write my words on the face of today. 

and then they'll paint it 

And oh as I fade away, 

they'll all look at me and they'll say, 

Hey look at him and where he is these days. 

When life is hard, you have to change.

This line in particular really struck me: 'And when your deepest thoughts are broken, keep on dreaming boy, cause when you stop dreamin' it's time to die.' Thanks for sharing this - a great song.

life revolves around change,if we don't change,we bocome stagnant
we crave what is new to challenge our minds,bodies and souls

Very cool. Rarely do I stumble upon lyrics, but this really was something special. I hope this piece help ease the pain of your heart because it is always difficult to let go of those who stand so close to us that they know what your heart beats for. Keep up the good work and it was a pleasure to read this

Sweet Shannon... left us way too soon...he was a poet .. most people i know
only know the one song of Blind Melon's ..No Rain which I relate to as my life is very plain and i like to watch the puddles gather rain..it is so wonderful, music..
so many songs you relate to and seems as if they wrote it just for you.

Great example of holding a dream and great goal in life.. songs like this inspire and perpetuate change while holding the aspects of who and what a person is deep inside. Music truly has impact in this world.. this song is one of thousands out there from fantastic artists that will reverberate for so much time to come! Thank you for posting it.. it's a great reminder!
