expect to change lyrics – 7 seconds

i keep thinking each and every day.
have i really made a difference, have i made things change?
in all these years of “growing up,” and “standing strong,”
has it made a single dent with all that is so wrong?

[chorus]
but if i haven’t done a thing for world affairs,
at least i know i try and i’ll show that i care.
’cause it’s me that has to make an effort,
or what can i expect to change.
that’s where it starts, in myself,
not just shifting all the blame.

and as i’m growin’ older, i can see the changes.
yet history ain’t history at all it seems,
i try to keep my head held high, eyes open wide,
and growing keeps me learning, yeah it keeps me free.

[chorus]

what have you got to think that time will stop for you?
