You Changed My Life

You changed my life

Came along in a time of strife

In hunger and need

You made my heart bleed

You changed my life

You changed my life

.

Now the nature of man

Is to beg and to steal

I'd do it myself

It's not so unreal

The call of the wild's

Forever at my door

Want me to fly like an eagle

Being chained to the floor, but

.

You changed my life

Came along in a time of strife

In hunger and need

You made my heart bleed

You changed my life

You changed my life

.

Eating with the pigs

Off a fancy tray

I was bold, I was looking good

And to have a nice day

It all seemed so proper

And so elite

Eating absolute garbage

While being so discreet.

.

You changed my life

Came along in a time of strife

In hunger and need

You made my heart bleed

You changed my life

You changed my life

.

You were glowing in the light

Being peaceably calm

Well, how often does a man dance

To the beat of the balm?

Your eyes were on fire

Your feet were of brass

In a world that you made

You were an outcast

.

You changed my life

Came along in a time of strife

In hunger and need

You made my heart bleed

You changed my life

You changed my life

.

Truce makers and partakers

Of every selfish whim

Her running to meet me running to her

And you running back to him

Their destruction of my confidence

Was like a sharpness of the tongue

I said: Make my faith greater

But I was a little high strung

.

You changed my life

Came along in a time of strife

In hunger and need

You made my heart bleed

You changed my life

You changed my life

.
