Lyrics

Some Things Never Change
(Bolter/Bell/Matteson/McMillan)

I saw momma talking with daddy, big tears in her eyes
He said “I been trying baby, but there ain’t no jobs to find
I don’t want no handout but something’s got to give
She said, pretty soon baby we won’t have a place to live

So we gotta take a stand
There’s something you gotta understand

They’ll try to hate you out there
They’ll try to hurt you out there
And when they’re done, they’re gonna throw you away
It’s getting hard out there - it’s getting worse out there, each and every day
And it didn’t just get that way
Yeah, some things will never change

Young man caught a rising star and rode it to the sky
And when he got way up there, they started printing all the lies
When he fell back down to earth, he tried to run away
And he called his simple daddy and this is what he said

You’re gonna have to make up your mind
Live with who you are or crawl away and die

They’ll try to hate you out there
They’ll try to hurt you out there
And when they’re done, they’re gonna throw you away
It’s getting hard out there and it’s getting worse out there, each and every day
And it didn’t just get that way
Yeah, some things will never change

They’ll try to hate you out there
They’ll try to hurt you out there
And when they’re done, they’re gonna throw you away
It’s getting hard out there and it’s getting worse out there, each and every day
And it didn’t just get that way
Yeah, some things will never change

So may promising lies that turn out in the end
Nothing more than fairy tales, so better find a friend
All these pretty images that we all take as real
Gotta dig down to the bone and find the man of steel

They’ll try to hate you out there
They’ll try to hurt you out there
And when they’re done, they’re gonna throw you away
It’s getting hard out there - it’s getting worse out there, each and every day

They’ll try to hurt you out there
They’ll try to hate you out there
And when they’re done, they’re gonna throw you away
