    Lyrics

    I wrote this once before
    Long before the summer
    You were then a student
    And we were dark as angels

    We were in the East
    Working to the West
    The West was looking South
    And the South, she had no pity

    Last night I dreamed
    And you were always in it
    There were hopes and plans, schemes
    And the town was full of winners

    Oh, brother, oh, sister
    This changing light
    Has lighted things so differently
    Has lighted things so differently

    I wrote this once before
    And we were all then working
    We thought we'd stop the flow
    Of a cruel and heartless woman

    If I'd known this then
    What would these wings have done
    They'd have beat and flapped and flown
    And not done and not done

    Last night I dreamed
    And you were always in it
    There were hopes and plans and schemes
    And the town was full of winners

    Oh, brother, oh, sister
    This changing light
    Has lighted things so differently
    Has lighted things so differently

    Oh, brother, oh, sister
    This changing light
    Oh, brother, oh, sister
    This changing light

    Oh, brother, oh, sister
    This changing light
    Has lighted things so differently
    Lighted things so differently, so differently

    I wrote it on my hand
    I kept it in the dark
    Never ran it through my hair
    I stuffed it in my pocket

    Wrote this on a journey
    All the way from Spain
    Where our fellows fought
    And never came back again

    To this changing light
    To this changing light
    Dark, dark, changing light

    Dark, dark, dark, dark, dark light
    1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983
    1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989

    To this changing light
    To this changing light
    This changing light
    To this changing light
