everything had changed lyrics – barenaked ladies

on the path of life, i wish you well
divergent journeys, but we will meet again in h*ll
i kept my head down and moved on
til every friend i’d known was gone

then, one day, i was not alone
everything had changed, everything was strange
everything had changed, everything was strange

when in rags and when in wealth
a solemn promise never to give too much of myself
despite the hopeful things i’ve said
i’ve lived my life inside my head

then, one day, i was not alone
everything had changed, everything was strange
everything had changed, everything was strange

i hold my breath and count to ten
i hate it now; hated it then
i’ve seen it all before
a failure and a bore
but that’s what friends are for

so it seems i must have won
as i survey the ashes of the damage that i’ve done
everyone i’ve ever known
is just as closed off and alone

then, one day, i was not alone
everything had changed, everything was strange
everything had changed, everything was strange
everything had changed, everything was strange
everything had changed, everything
