Lyrics

Change of Heart
Jeffrey Powel & Ray Burns

A woman at the table
Picking at a nail
Says, “Sometimes I feel so lonely
The light within me fails.”

For a while her friend says nothing
When a flame begins to spark
As they move from making small talk
To the matters of the heart.

Listen with all your senses.
Be open from the start
Let burdens pass from mouth to ear
Into a change of heart

The new kid in the school room
Staring at the floor.
A bullied child of bullied men
Frightened and unsure.

The teacher says go find a seat.
He just freezes in place
When a girl who remembers being new
Smiles and makes a space

Listen with all your senses.
Be open from the start
Let burdens pass from mouth to ear
Into a change of heart      

  
A soldier gone so far from home
Missing children and his bride
He takes aim at the enemy
In a foreign countryside.
  
His resolve is locked and loaded
In an instant he stands down
As the rebel fighter shares his bread
With a youngster on the  ground.

Listen with all your senses.
Be open from the start
Let burdens pass from mouth to ear
Into a change of heart

A young man’s feeling threatened
By the heartless act of another
He swears revenge to right a wrong
In the name of God and father.

His wife puts her hand on him
As he rises from their bed
She stops him with a single word,
“Forgive” is all she says.

Listen with all your senses.
Be open from the start
Let burdens pass from mouth to ear
Into a change of heart

 

Listen with all our senses
Be open from the start
Let burdens pass from mouth to ear
Into a change of heart.

 

 

Change of Heart is a song written about moments that alter our experience of the world when we listen with all our senses. It is about healing. It was written by Jeffrey Powel using a chord progression contributed by Ray Burns.
