The Change Lyrics
I know the words I need to say
Frozen in my place
I let the moment slip away. I've been screaming on the inside
And I know you feel the pain
Can you hear me? can you hear me?
Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh
Well this is one song which I just love !!!!
Because its each line is related to me.
She starts off by saying that she always wanted to say something to him, but whenever she sees him she freezes and she does not know what to say or do. The moment passes by and she forgets everything.
On the outside she seems calm but internally she is screaming at the way her life is going. She knows that a part of him feels the sting of the pain. A part of him feels bad for her. She tries to call him towards her.
Then in the next verse you replise the reason for their seperation.
She says that she never meant to lie about anything between them. But he has only seen her bad qualities he has not experienced her good qualities. The more time she spends thinking about him the more she drifts away from her reality, leaving her alone.
In the bridge she says :-
Its not that she is different or anything, and she clearly sees the light of the start of their relationship dying. She then tells him that fine i was wrong in lying and you wont agree to forgiving me, but then even I cant forgive you for behaving so meanly. You are not what you seemed to me in the start. But even though everyone says your not good for me I lie that yes we are made for each other and take your side. Because of these problems I am going to loose my mind and go crazy.
The end there is a twist.... she says
That he must be dreaming if he thinks that she still loves him that madly as before and she knows internally that she is dying because by saying these things she is lying to herself.
I too love a guy but I lied to him and I still have hope that he will return someday.

That the relationship she is in is barely a relationship at all anymore, it's a shadow of what it used to be.
It hurts to know how beautiful it was and how she wishes it could still be like it was then.
Despite all hope she knows it will never be the same again, and she is screaming on the inside as she feels stuck/torn.
She still loves her man dearly, but it's not enough to just love and to not feel anything, to not feel alive inside anymore like how they used to be 'alive' together.
Because she is still in love with him, she doesn't want to end it just because she's not feeling as much anymore, but at the same time, she is screaming for more passion and love from her man, and he gives less and less, as if she is the only one that is fighting to hold this relationship together. Holding on how he used to be with her.
She keeps thinking about breaking it off, and what life would be like without him, but she is not strong enough to ever do it, because she still feels too much for him and wants it to fix it's self and work out eventually. Waiting for him.
