Pretenders, The - When I Change My Life Lyrics

When i change my life
There'll be no more disgrace
The deeds of my past
Will be erased

And you'll forgive me
Then you will come back
Hold my hand and say "i still love you"
When i change my life

When i change my life
And all the scars have faded
I'll be someone you look up to
Not excused when your friends come around

And you'll want me always to be there
You'll be proud to say "i'm with her"
When i change my life

I want a place in the sun - i do
I want to be in love with someone
I want to forget every regret
And all those rotten things that i put you through

When i change my life
And the idiot me
Leaves this town forever
Leaves us to be
Together - for the rest of our lives
Happily forever and ever
When i change my life

Pretenders, The When I Change My Life Comments
  1. Carol-Marie Fleming

    This album holds so many memories me as well and this song is just amazing. I haven't heard it in 30 years for sure. I'm finding myself in tears. Room Full of Mirrors rocks.

  2. brian galien

    this song and the lyrics changed "my" life..

  3. Adrian Daniels

    Revisitng this album after 31 years......can hardly believe it's that long ago. This song and album meant so much to me then and those feelings flood back in an instant listening now.

  4. Stephen White

    what's the Guitar used on this song and does any one know the chords used in the arpeggio

    M.G. Gallagher

    Robbie McIntosh and Chrissie Hynde both play Telecasters. The C - D bridge is just different forms of the chords, the first C is up the neck where the 3d is the top note, like moving a standard D chord up the neck, then I bet you can figure it out from there. It's a very cool and smart use of the progression, and what a kickass song period. Worthy question.

  5. franko6677

    Great song! I think the version on the Pirate Radio boxed set is the best version.

  6. John Conway

    Love it. "Get Close" was yet another brilliant album by the brilliant Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders .

    M.G. Gallagher

    Yep. Excellent album.
