Lyrics

I’d Change Everything
[William Livesay ©1996]

I jumped in the river trying to save my soul
Feeling guilty for the lies I’ve told
Wasted life hanging out breaking all the rules
Never got me any place but a pair of jail house blues
When times got hard I turned and walked away
But the ones that made it always faced it day to day
So if you ask what I would do to shed my skin
I would change everything to start all over again
If I could do it all over
I would change everything if I could… you know I would
If I could do it all over
I would change everything if I could
I did my share of drugs started at just 15
Took me a blue eyed betty mmm... that girl could tease
I thought I was the greatest so I strutted like a fool
And I bragged to all my friends thinking I was cool
I gave her no respect I took her dignity
I laid it on solid ground for everyone to see
So if you ask what I would do to shed my skin
I would change everything to start all over again
If I could do it all over
I would change everything if I could… you know I would
If I could do it all over
I would change everything if I could
Tell me what’s wrong with being human
Tell me what’s wrong with being loved
Tell me what’s wrong with being hopeful

Got no excuses for the bridges I’ve burned
When all is said and done I’ll take what I deserve
But what about you can you right all that you’ve wronged
And make yourself a better man as each day comes along
If I could do it all over
I would change everything if I could… you know I would
If I could do it all over
I would change everything if I could
If I could do it all over
I would change everything if I could… you know I would
If I could do it all over
I would change everything if I could… you know I would
