    "Change" Lyrics

    Black 47

    I remember you back in 1992
    When they were putting us down
    Trying to tramp us into the ground
    You exploded like a flame in the night
    With a righteous indignation
    Told us "everything gonna be alright"

    Change come slowly like the ocean
    But it keep on comin' nonetheless
    Take my hand, oh dear companion,
    We may not find happiness
    But peace and then some real contentment

    And a measure of social justice
    Oh change come slowly like the ocean
    But they can't stop the tide
    And they're never ever goin' to stop us

    They've got the bullets and the guns
    And the propaganda machine
    All we ever had was an impossible dream
    You stood tall as steel in the flaming night
    Said "let us have no fear
    The victors will be those who can the most endure

    Sally came to me with flames in her eyes
    And her long hair blowin' in the breeze
    She said "dry up your tears, boy, we've been down too long
    It's time we were up off our knees"

    Oh the stars in the heavens are blazin' tonight

    The moon she is glidin' on high
    And the drum roll of liberty beats in my heart
    As the warm winds of change blow by

    Don't ask me to be a slave anymore
    I couldn't be if I tried
    For the pipes scream an anthem of hope in my heart
    As the warm winds of change blow by

    She moved like a ghost through the enemy lines
    But her laugh was defiant and clear
    She kissed me hard on the mouth and said "goodbye,
    I'll love you forever, my dear"
