#MusicMonday: “Changing” by John Mayer

John Mayer is one of my favorite artists. He’s an amazing guitar player as well as a great songwriter. I particularly love his last album as I feel like he is speaking and opens up to us. I feel like he’s telling his story through his music.

Today for #MusicMonday, I want to talk about his song “Changing” from his latest album The Search for Everything.

My interpretation of this song is that everyone is changing no matter what the age the person is. Like it or not, every single day is different. People settle faster than others, but for some, they never stop changing.  We have to live each day as if there is no tomorrow and follow your heart to where it leads you. It may break you, but that’s how we learn lessons in life and keep moving forward and change for the better.

 

Here are the lyrics:

Changing

[Chorus]
I am not done changing
Out on the run, changing
I may be old and I may be young
But I am not done changing

[Verse]
I met me someone changing
We had some fun changing
Sometimes I wonder if she’ll be the one
When I am done changing

Some of us stopped running
Some of us went home
Some of us don’t got one
So we’ll build one of our own

Friends behind their fences
Looking at me strange
Wondering when I’m gonna come to my senses
But I’m still changing
And I can’t change my ways

I see the sky changing
Reminds me of my changing
Wish I could tie me a rope ’round the sun
‘Cause I am not done changing

[Bridge]
Time’s been talking to me
Whispering in my ear
Saying “Follow your heart
‘Til it tears you apart”
But hearts keep changing
Hearts keep changing
Hearts keep changing
Hearts keep changing

[Instrumental Solo]

[Chorus]
I am not done changing
Out on the run, changing
I may be old and I may be young
But I am not done changing
Changing
Changing
