Winds of Change

While remodeling our house, my wife found an old-school cd by Russ Taff.  I put it on and relived some memories.  The song Winds of Change struck me with how much this song is about ME.  Check it out.

Well, I’ve seen my chances come and go
And come back round again
But everytime they took me by surprise

There was a day I used to want
the things I did not have
But it’s never better on the other side.

Well, I’ve never gone so far that I’ve
forgotten my way home
The best things always bring you back again
over and over

(chorus)
The Hands of Time
Go Round and Round
They don’t slow down when you lose your way
At evry turn
The things you learn
You wear them proud like you wear your name
And as you go
On Down that road
Don’t let the dust get in your eyes
It blows in the winds of change.
(end of chorus)

Hunger is no stranger
I’ve sat with him before
And everything I’ve done has not been good

As I’ve tried to make my stand
I’ve had to learn to fall
And maybe I’ve seen more than I should
But I’ve never gone so far that I’ve
Forgotten my way home
The best things always bring you back again
over and over

(sing chorus)

And I held on to my life
And I kept my dream alive
And the dream ain’t over
Over and over

Yahweh

Take these shoes
Click clacking down some dead end street
Take these shoes
And make them fit
Take this shirt
Polyester white trash made in nowhere
Take this shirt
And make it clean, clean
Take this soul
Stranded in some skin and bones
Take this soul
And make it sing

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I’m waiting for the dawn

Take these hands
Teach them what to carry
Take these hands
Don’t make a fist
Take this mouth
So quick to criticise
Take this mouth
Give it a kiss

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I’m waiting for the dawn

Still waiting for the dawn, the sun is coming up
The sun is coming up on the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, tell me now
Why the dark before the dawn?

Take this city
A city should be shining on a hill
Take this city
If it be your will
What no man can own, no man can take
Take this heart
Take this heart
Take this heart
And make it break
