  • We Want Change

    I was following my feet
    when I heard a sound so sweet -
    a man strumming near the street.
    And the sign propped against him read:

    "Keep your coins I just want change."
    What a lovely thing to say!
    Keep your coins, I just want change.
    I told him that I felt the same.

    And he smiled, and we sang for a while
    about life and how great it will be
    when everyone learns to live free.

    So we palavered of our plans,
    of the concomitant strands -
    how to join such frayed and tattered bands.
    And the sign propped against us read:

    "Keep your coins we just want change.
    We both vow to start today."
    Keep your coins we just want change.
    Tell me, do you feel the same?

    Just smile, sit and talk for a while
    about life and how great it will be
    when everyone learns to live free.

    Now people all around
    Are flocking to the sound.
    Their hearts are all on common ground.
    And the signs held above them read:

    "Keep your coins, we just want change."
    We all vow to start today.
    Keep your coins, we just want change.
    Tell me do you feel the same?

    Just smile, sit and talk for a while
    about life and how great it will be
    when everyone learns to live free, finally.

          I looked through all my media, and turns out I haven't put it up anywhere yet! But I am going to record a video within the next two or three days, and then I will post a link
