Lyrics

I never meant to change you
(inspired by a chapter in Kahlil Gibran’s “The Prophet”)

I have changed you into someone
you were never meant to be.
I have locked you in and lost the
key to what you meant to me.
Forgive me; I never meant to change you.

Did I break your spirit with my rules,
chill you with my tears,
take away your laughter,
give you all my fears,
break your spirit with my rules,
chill you with my tears,
take away your laughter,
give you all my fears?
Forgive me, I never meant to change you.

I have been the rainy one who
saw the sadness everywhere
and I have been no good for you,
overcome with this despair.
Forgive me; I never meant to change you.

Did I break your spirit with my rules,
chill you with my tears,
take away your laughter,
give you all my fears,
break your spirit with my rules,
chill you with my tears,
take away your laughter,
give you all my fears?
Forgive me, I never meant to, -
I never meant to change;
I never meant to change you.

We have danced as one so long
we've forgotten how we danced alone,
and we have shared the cup of life
so long that we still thirst for our own.
Forgive me; I never meant to change you.

Did I break your spirit with my rules,
chill you with my tears,
take away your laughter,
give you all my fears,
break your spirit with my rules,
chill you with my tears,
take away your laughter,
give you all my fears?
Forgive me, I never meant to, -
I never meant to change;
I never meant to change you.
