Some Things Never Change

A song about the stabilizing effect of love relationships in our lives

Last month I took my daughter
Back to visit my old home town
Like always we saw grandma
But then we took a walk around

Down winding College Avenue
To old Main Street far below
I noticed how things have changed
Since I grew up here long ago

I showed her my old grade school
The same one grandma went to
The desks and teachers are all gone
And the play ground is empty too

My daughter asked why do things change
Why isn’t school there anymore
She wished she could go back in time
And see things like they were before

Life is a gift we are given
That’s the way it is
Change happens everyday
So we have to change to live

Chorus
I said

But as this world evolves
Some things never change
Love steadies our lives
My love for you remains the same
Some things never change

We walked the tracks of the B&O
America’s first railroad
A red caboose stands at the depot
But that railroad vanished long ago

My grandfather was a contractor
And built a lot of stores on Main Street
The barber shop where I got crew cuts
Is just a store selling antiques

I got cold as the sun went down
And I could feel my old home town
Halloween paintings in store windows
Xmas wreaths on telephone poles

I wish that things could stay the same
All my friends were here and hadn’t changed
I wanted those feelings back again
Then my daughter tugged on my hand

As we walked back up the hill
She said she thinks she understands
We’re all here for just a little while
Don’t be scared Dad I’ll hold your hand

Chorus
She said

But as this world evolves
Some things never change
Love steadies our lives
My love for you remains the same
Some things never change
