The Changingman
Paul Weller Lyrics


Is happiness real?
Or am I so jaded
I can't see or feel, like a man been tainted
Numbed by the effect, aware of the muse
Too in touch with myself, I light the fuse

I'm the changingman, built on shifting sands
I'm the changingman, waiting for the bang
As I light a bitter fuse
Our time is on loan, only ours to borrow
What I can't be today, I can be tomorrow

And the more I see, the more I know
The more I know, the less I understand

I'm the changingman, built on shifting sands
I'm the changingman, I'm waiting for the bang
To light a bitter fuse

It's a bigger part
When our instincts act
A shot in the dark
A movement in black

And the more I see, the more I know
The more I know, the less I understand

I'm the changingman, built on shifting sands
(I don't have a plan)
I'm the changingman, waiting for the bang
As I light a bitter fuse

Built on shifting sands
I'm the changingman, I'm waiting for the bang
As I light a bitter fuse

The changingman

Is happiness real or am I so jaded?
Can't see or feel like a man been tainted
Numbed by the effect, aware of the muse
Too in touch with myself, I light the fuse

I'm the changingman
Woh
Built on shifting sand
Yea
I'm changingman
Woh
Waiting for the bang
(Bang)
As I light a bitter fuse

Our time is on loan, only us to borrow
An' I know
But I can't be today, I can be tomorrow
Yea, all I see, the more I know
The more I know, the less I understand

I'm the changingman
Built on shifting sands
Yea
I'm a changingman
I' m waiting for the bang
To light a bitter fuse

Bigger part ahh, when our instincts act
A shot in the dark, a movement in black, yea
More I see, more I know
The more I know, the less I understand you

(Changingman)
Yea eee aaa
Built on shifting sands
I don't have a plan
I'm changingman
Waiting for the bang
To light a bitter fuse

(Changingman)
Built on shifting sands
Yea eee yea
I'm a changingman
Waiting for the bang
To light a bitter fuse
Yea eee yea

I never understood why this guy wasn't huge in the USA, he is phenominal. Super talented.

Paul Mcduff

His band the jam was a mod band which was a brittish thing plus his lyrics were more about Britain . But yeah he's good especially this song hereπŸ‘

Paul Mcduff

@Celtic Bhoy exactly, hail hail πŸ€

Paul Mcduff

@Shane Freund aye but nobody took notice of grunge it was all underground until the brittish people n press took notice of them nirvana ,

Mi G

Weller is an institution, a mod icon and working class hero. Authentic, great song writer, and musican. Paul Weller will be remembered in years from know.

Colin Geddes

@julia overton as much as i loved weller in the jam and admired his solo career, im inclined to agree with u. No wonder alot of his ex fans call him a champagne socialist.

julia overton

@Callum Drysdale Hahaha you are funny. Soon as he made a few quid it was bye bye working class roots. Fantasy island bull

Cosmo Kramer

Some songwriter. He nicked this song from ELO's, "10538 Overture".

Callum Drysdale

Spot on Peter Howard, never forgot his working class roots
