the change

Early in the afternoon / I sat around and listened through the wall / old man Ben was breaking down / like acid rain the words began to fall / I had heard it one too many times / I couldn’t stand to see it through / then I heard him crying  / and it seemed like I was seeing it anew / then I laid down and felt the change / all this love ran through my veins / and I began to understand / that only love can make a man / only love can take a stand / as the sun was setting / I got up and took a stroll down to the sea / all the fishing boats were now returning / and the sky was growing pink / walking down the beach I met a child / selling bracelets made by hand / I bought two / before she left she knelt / and spelled her name out in the sand / M-A-R-E / then I laid down and felt the change / all this love ran through my veins / and I began to understand / that only love can make the man / only love can take a stand / only love can take a stand.
