Pat Green - I Can't Change A Thing Lyrics




Lately I'm feeling kinda broken
Like a man out of sorts with the world
I ain't got no explanation
And if I did I know I'd sound absurd

Yeah but I can't change a thing
No matter what I do
And you don't care what I say
I can't hide the pain any more
Oh I'm going away

Just need a way to keep the raid out
And land with both feet on the ground
Yeah but every time I go
Stand up on my own
You come along
You come along
and then you knock me down

Yeah but I can't change a thing
No matter what I do
And you don't care what I say
I can't hide the pain anymore
Oh I'm going away

Maybe I'd break out for the mountains
Or maybe I could head for Mexico
Then you come in begging
Pleading you said baby please don't leave me
Well I made up my mind
Well I made up my maid
It's time to go

Yeah and I can't change a thing no matter what you do
I don't care what you say
Cause I can't hide the pain anymore
Oh I'm going away
Oh I'm going away

  4. 8Otherwordly Adventurers

    They told me when I grow up I wanted to be a merry go round painter.... honestly, i don't remember this... Go play and Hear this... In the Upper Purity He placed 3 things "His thought 'I shall rule', His Name, and His Essence'. Get up from there and hear this...

  5. Drundel

    Back when college girls were cute and dressed cute... damn I miss college.

  6. Albert Morrill

    This song is the top of my playlist great song.

  7. Brandon Kock

    This song is so happy but sad at the same time. I try and ask friends to listen to this and tell me what they think. I think it is about someone that might want to hurt them self. Then someone comes along and tells them they are worth living for. There is no color in this world. Love everyone

  8. jdc1957

    Amy Leach

    Like i've said....they're called trolls and just here to annoy us. Ignore 'em.

  19. lanier1000

    I might be wrong but some sections of the songs seem to have been ripped off or sampled from the 80s song "In The Living Years" by Mike + The Mechanics.

  20. Miguel Aguirre

    I love this song i can play this song over and over i never get Tire of listen to the song 🎼🎵🎶🎤🎻🎧🎤🎼🎵🎶🎻

  21. Jawless

    I was 16 and just got my first truck. An 1989 GMC Sierra, spot side with duel flowmaster elderbroc hedders and 454 bigblock. This song was blasting. You never forget what was playing on the radio when you get to enjoy the open road for the first time.

  22. Jeromy Yandell

    #Kinnickwave

  23. Kent Hawley

    I hadn't thought about this song for a long while until I heard it playing in the background of the Iowa Hawkeye Kinnick Wave, where--at the end of the first quarter--all the players and fans in the stadium turn to wave at the kids in the Stead Family Children's Hospital that overlooks the stadium. It's a beautiful thing, and this song just makes it better.

  24. Lee Parker

    The Dave Matthew's Band Meets Country Music.

  25. Mike C

  34. Lee Ernesto Boles

    Country music from this period and before (2003-1960s) is what I enjoy... Today's "country music" sucks

  35. Mai

    This song brings back so many good memories

  36. rosha kasravi

    Great Song !

  37. Claude Parish

    There was a different version of this song after "If I Were The Devil" on the CD. It wasn't listed as a track. Kind of a bonus slower version. Very nice.

  43. Michelle Bernardin

    I always play this song every Friday since it came out but I'm here on Sunday this week. It makes my bad days better. I guess because they come in waves. Depression is awful. Pat Green just makes it go away.

  44. Beth Bockus

    David Kee

  55. Cheryl Semashkewich

    Mile upon mile got no direction
    We're all playing the same game
    We're all looking for redemption
    We’re just afraid to say the name
    So caught up now in pretending
    What we're seeking is the truth
    I'm just looking for a happy ending
    All I'm looking for is you

    Chorus

    And it came upon me wave on wave
    You're the reason I'm still here
    Am I the one you were sent to save
    And it came upon me wave on wave

    I wondered out into the water
    And I thought that I might drown
    I don’t know what I was after
    Just know I was going down
    That's when she found me
    Not afraid anymore
    She said you know I always had you baby
    Just waiting for you to find what you were looking for

    Repeat Chorus

    Wave on wave, wave on wave…

    Repeat Chorus

    The clouds broke and the angels cried
    You ain't gotta walk alone
    That's why they put me in your way
    And it came upon me wave on wave

    Chorus
    Repeat Chorus

  56. Danny Hyde

  62. Karsen Anthony

    The first time I heard this song was in Iowa city during halftime during the Iowa-Miami game. I absolutely love this song and nothing can change that.

  63. Horsehide

    I picked my son and his buddy up at Marine Boot Camp graduation to take them home from San Diego to Arizona for boot leave. This was all over the radio then and still gives me a good feeling. Good juju I always thought. It must have come on the radio 10 times by the time we got back. Powerful memory for me and those fellas.

  64. Jerry Boland

    Great performance during half time at the Iowa and Rutgers football game on 9/7/2019.
