This is a sample of a track from the 2003 album “The Australian Dream”

I like the quote from Ghandi, “Be the change you want in the world” and I wrote this song to reflect that.

During recording the words changed a little from the original, the lyrics were:

The only one that I can change is me

 

Well the only one that I can change is me

as soon as I do

I’m gonna really be free

cause I may want to change the world

but that’s too big a job for me

so the only one that  I can change is me

The only one that I can change is me

well  it’ll help if I understand what’s wrong with me

so I won’t criticize from a distance

     I’ll just look in a mirror and see

That the only one that I can change is me

The only one that I can change is me

Only love can help me to recognize this mystery…

that the problems of the world will appear quite differently

If everyone changed themselves

like I’m changin’ me

Solo Saxchange

The only one that I can change is me

My view of myself is different from what others see

I delude, elude, then I try to construe

      Myself, realistically

Cause truth lives in authenticity.
