How Do I Change The World

Written 1992

Verse 1:
I live like anyone else on this floating ball of blue
I see things that we've forgotten though no less true
on a starry night ablaze with the light of a million suns
I wonder how I can make a difference being only one

Refrain:
I'm searching for an answer trying to find out
what do I do to change the world
I'm searching through my memory of all the other lifetimes
what can I do to change the world

Verse 2:
I've never been in a protest march I guess that I am afraid
I've always shied away from the politics of how our choices are made
I try to treat other people as I would treat someone I love
sometimes when I see the state of things I wonder if I do enough

refrain.

Verse 3:
is it enough in this time we're living in to simple live
or are we actually taking away all that we do not give
I'd like to think my life has made an impression on someone
but it's hard to tell how much we do has already been done

refrain.

I'm searching for an answer trying to find out
what do I do to change the world
