lyrics

Verse 1:
Why'd you leave me drowned in the pain
Where the clouds don't drop any rain
My, my son don't grow up too fast
Don't label me as the past

Chorus 1:
You can't stop the change
No more than you can stop the sun from setting

Verse 2:
Finally grasped this idea
Freedom always costs something dear
Oh, oh don't look back
Keep your eyes on track

Chorus 2:
But you can't stop the change
No more than you can stop the sun from setting
Freedom feels so strange
I finally see that you were right for leaving

Bridge:
I forgive you

Verse 3:
Even if I still wore the chains
I'd be proud of you all the same
Whoa, oh the desert is dry
No more rain from the sky
