lyrics

If You Change Your Mind

If only I could somehow change your mind
so you’ll no longer fear and want to hide,
buried deep within the walls you built throughout your life
that keep you holding all the pain inside.
But the only one who can decide is you.

Divided by culture and divided by where we stand,
but joined by flesh and blood just like the rest who walk this earth.
I’m sorry being myself made you hurt,
but there’s no point in running from the truth.

There will come a day when everything will fade
and the last thing left to take away will be the memories that you made,
and you’ll look for the times we never shared,
but if you change your mind just know you’ll find I will be there.

See, I believe there’s no honor in filling you with lies.
You might just understand if you would try,
‘cause there’s no point in running from the truth.
No, there’s no point in running from the truth.

There will come a day when everything will fade
and the last thing left to take away will be the memories that you made,
and you’ll look for the times we never shared,
but if you change your mind just know you’ll find I will be there.

You might be surprised with the courage you might find inside of you.
And you might be surprised with the peace that you might find
if you change your mind.

There will come a day when everything will fade
and the last thing left to take away will be the memories that you made,
and you’ll look for the times we never shared,
wondering what became of all those years.
It’s not too late to drop that cross you bear,
‘cause if you change your mind just know you’ll find I will be there.
