Lyric Tuesday

I'm trying to make this a weekly feature - too bad I was out of town last Tuesday and forgot.  Anyway, here's a song that's particularly poignant.  When things are bothering me too much - like the neighbor's music, or the idiot drivers, or the moron at the grocery store who can't control her kids...  I just try to remember their ability to bother me all hinges on my own mindset.  Things can only bug you as long as you let them.

"Change Your Mind"
by Sister Hazel

Hey, Hey
Did you ever think
There might be another way
To just feel better,
Just feel better about today

Oh no-
If you never want to have
To turn and go away
You might feel better,
Might feel better if you stay

Yeah yeah
I bet you haven't heard
A word I've said
Yeah yeah
If you've had enough
Of all your tryin'
Just give up
The state of mind you're in:

If you want to be somebody else,
If you're tired of fighting battles with yourself
If you want to be somebody else
Change your mind...

Hey hey-
Have you ever danced in the rain
Or thanked the sun
Just for shining- just for shining
Over the sea?
Oh no- take it all in
The world's a show
And yeah, you look much better,
Look much better when you glow


Hey hey-
what ya say
We both go and seize the day
'cause what's your hurry
what's your hurry anyway



  1. I was just listening to Sister Hazel this morning! I only just discovered them a month or so ago. The song I listened to this morning was "Best I'll Ever Be".

  2. Great lyrics. I definitely believe we should seize the day. Carpe diem indeed.

  3. I never loved this song, but your message is so true. Whether I get aggravated totally depends on what I'm willing to exercise tolerance for. Working on that...

  4. Great song! I gave you a pair of . . . blog awards. Stop by to check it out.

  5. I haven't heard this song - will have to give it a listen on iTunes.

    But I love the message.
