Everybody Changes

You looked beautiful
In your new dress
But your face was hard
And your eyes were dark
And to think,
I knew you long before them
All those lovely strangers
That you long to please.

Everybody changes
Even the ones you think you know
As you turn to leave
I watch you go

Take your alcohol
To the dance floor
With a cigarette
In your other hand
And to think
I knew you as a young child
When your eyes were light
And your conscience clear

Everybody changes
Even the ones you thought you knew
Never thought that change
Would come to you

As you turn to leave
I watch you go.
