about

I love this song for it's simplicity & for the straight-forward message that "yes, you CAN do something to make things better--you DO have influence, no matter how small and nothing you feel." With all the massive things gone or going wrong in this fallen world, it's easy to get discouraged and question what good our meager efforts accomplish the face of such negativity. This song has always encouraged me to keep plodding along, that I CAN and do make a difference.

lyrics

You can't change the stormy weather.
You can't change the sands of time.
You can't change the rugged mountain
So it's easier to climb.

But you can change somebody's life
Just by giving them your own.
One by one we'll change the World.
So come on, sing this song.

Chorus:
[You can change yourself]
It might take a little while.
[You can change your friends]
Just by giving them a smile.
[You can change the World]
And we've got so little time
To chase away the darkness
And fill the World with light.

You can't stop the rain from fallin'.
You can't stop the ocean's tide.
You can't stop the sun from shinin'
Even if you try.

But you can stop that empty feeling
Of being all alone.
Just put love in someone's life,
You'll find love is in your own.

Chorus:
[You can change yourself]
It might take a little while.
[You can change your friends]
Just by giving them a smile.
[You can change the World]
And you've got so little time
To chase away the darkness
And fill the World with light.

[We can change the World]
And you've got so little time
To chase away the darkness
And fill the World with light.
