If They Couldn’t Change Us

If They Couldn’t Change Us

What if we didn’t go their way
What if we didn’t care what they say
What if we yearn to discover who we are
What if we dared to catch that lonely star

What if riches and fame meant nothing to us
And the inventions we wished to see is what we sought
Even seeing that those around us were as good as us

What if no matter how much they tried
They kept failing, they kept falling
Every time they threw their lies
On us
What if they couldn’t change us
What if they couldn’t change us

What if they couldn’t shame us to live as they do
What if we didn’t care to believe in their truth
What if we knew what we wanted life to be
What if we worked to turn that dream into reality

What if having lots of friends meant nothing to us
And building community on genuine love was what we sought
Maybe a lot of the world’s problems would turn to dust

What if no matter how much they tried
They kept failing, they kept falling
Every time they threw their lies
On us
What if they couldn’t change us
What if they couldn’t change us
