How do you change the way you walk through life
When you know in your heart what you should do
There are so many reminders and clues each day
But you find the hardest thing to change is you.
We all have friends that give the best advice
But too often we just hear it without any change
We know they mean well and it is probably best
And yet what they say may just sound so strange.
How can they know the feelings of my own heart
Even I can’t make sense of what I am feeling
Happy one moment and so optimistic of the future
And the next I think too much and go off reeling.
Maybe with any real life changing thing we do
One of the first things to admit is the need
So maybe one day I will finally take the steps
To change myself, until then my heart may bleed.
