Verse 1: They're closing all the schools down Some teachers work for free now And libraries won't be found Cause there's not enough Can you see a change in your town Small close it's ??? I'm trying to sort it out What we're giving up Chorus: Basically There are people left out From living Comfortably can we figure it out I've been waiting Restlessly for the words to a song That would Change it all Change it all Change it all Verse 2: I never found a 9 to 5 That was worth it from my soul Til I I pursued what brought joy in my life And there's something for us all And I still think it is my right And it's the last and one of few To get the luxery for learning Something I could use Chorus: Basically There are people left out From living Comfortably can we figure it out I've been waiting Restlessly for the words to a song That could Change it all Change it all (If the words could change it all) Change it all (Change it all) Bridge: So many laws are changing They say it's the price for war We send over at least ? billions It's hard to believe that years ago people died to fight But history feels so far away History feels so far away We're not fighting for our lives anymore You're not fighting for my life anymore It's hard to know what's really worth fighting for Or is it killing and dying on the streets Chorus: Ohhh Basically There are people left out From living Comfortably can we figure it out I've been waiting Restlessly for the words to a song That could Change it all Chorus 2: Oh! Basically There's enough for us all So Why can't we somehow figure it out I've been waiting Restlessly for the words to a song That could Change it all Change it all (If the words could change it all) Change it all Change it all Change it all If a song could change it all What if we could change it all (Thanks to Quita for these lyrics) [ Change It All Lyrics on http://www.lyricsmania.com/ ]

First Love 04:26
As summer was ending, you were walking in It seemed my life was falling but in this season we were friends six days into spring, is where our story begins you didn't rush a thing, but you knew you would win CHORUS I never thought you'd be the only one I dream't of fairytales ,thats how we begun but I was waiting for some magical moment, that would proove to me, forever would be fine, meanwhile my first love, was standing first in line One of the first times I didn't feel alone, Is when i was in your arms you always made me feel at home we watched the sunrise,cause the night had sliped away and from then until know, we've been through some different phases but you love the winter, love the challenge, always managed to think that we would make it CHORUS So let me get used to things, cause gradual's my name I don't dive into the cold, I get in slow but every day, I'm making peace with loving you, peace with being me any pieces of us- I claim them all today

4AM 04:46
Awake in bed at 4am Awake in bed Cuz lately sleep ain't been my friend you leave me with no happy end you said it all keeps and even though I might complain you know I feel the same ole way about you, babe I'll love you till the very end I love you, I can't see my life without you We might be a long way from heaven But I won't give end No, not like this I feel it is my Saturn return There's a lot we can win Just not like this I see us pass the sleepless nights I see us pass the silent fights and arguing We'll make it through the ? phases We'll make it through the stomach aches and crying, tears Somehow we're back to fear again Somehow we're back to questioning or leaving There's never been a silent end There's never been a ? to spend without you We might be a long way from heaven But I won't give end No, not like this I feel it is my Saturn return There's a lot we can win Just not like this Silky soft words are forgotten But you treat me ? Come inside, I'll keep you warm Though it hurts me, leaves me torn Every time you lend a hand Our love outlasts the storm again Again Again We might be a long way from heaven But I won't give end No, not like this I feel it is my Saturn return There's a lot we can win Just not like this

(Verse one) I'm looking at you from a distance I'm wondering how all my feelings changed Do you remember even half the shit we used to do And how it used to be I wish it was different All these feelings ??? But I still believe (I mean what are you saying then, damn) (chorus 1) That it could be different (You know I miss the butterflies, the look in your eyes, how they would shine) It could be different (And now it feels like it's over baby) That it could be different (If you would realize that you need to set aside just a little time to..) It could be different I know we can make it better baby (Verse Two) No I can't keep living on memories What if where this is turning This isn't meant to be We used to get lifted The love we craved it so insatiably And lately I've been missing all the little things (Rap One) Maybe I got comfortable with the way you was treating me Hot meals cooked up, way you would feed me I'm selfish, how could I let my fear defeat me Scared of something different, and I see you complete me But ay I don't like to argue a bit I promise I'll change if I ain't gotta hear your lip Oh I'm sorry, I'm saying But you don't respect You don't listen you're no different (Shit, Gotdamn it) Save your breath (Chorus 2) That it could be different (I know you saying I should change, through out time I ain't the same in my ways) It could be different (and now it feels like it's over babe) (I see you're feelings start to fade, it's all my fault huh' your feelings ain't the same) That it could be different (Ma, why is you mad, acting like everything I do is bad) It could be different (You got some issues too, listen it ain't nothing we can't get through) I know we can make it better baby (Bridge) You're high I'm low And still this distance seems to grab a hold I miss you so and making love still feels like coming home We fuss we fight I leave You might But then you make it right But still at night I can't stand the sight of you not in my life (Chorus one) That it could be different (You know I miss the butterflies, the look in your eyes, how they would shine) It could be different (And now it feels like it's over baby) That it could be different (If you would realize that you need to set aside just a little time to..) It could be different I know we can make it better baby (Rap2) Lets take it back to the picnics at Tillman Flicks with the children Talks by the lake Walks through your building The feeling of fresh love Can't dismiss this I know that you miss it My permanent missus Permanent Kisses The flirting and wishing Before all the back and forth huffing and hissing Hear me and listen I remember our mission So I'm willing to change if you say that I'm different (Chorus 2) That it could be different (I know you saying I should change, through out time I ain't the same in my ways) It could be different (and now it feels like it's over babe) (I see you're feelings start to fade, it's all my fault huh' your feelings ain't the same) That it could be different (Ma, why is you mad, acting like everything I do is bad) It could be different (You got some issues too, listen it ain't nothing we can't get through) I know we can make it better baby (chorus 1) That it could be different (You know I miss the butterflies, the look in your eyes, how they would shine) It could be different (And now it feels like it's over baby) That it could be different (If you would realize that you need to set aside just a little time to..) It could be different I know we can make it better baby

Crushed Out 04:19
Chorus: You know I'm crushed out on you and you alone If I thought you had my number I'd stay home by the phone Day and night I sit and wait for you to call me But only time will show how far this can go Verse 1: His voice it comforts me Sweet and raspy tone of love It trails me into dreams I wanna wake up to it(up to it) Full blast full blast) His name alone Gives me a rush What a feeling I can feel it in my bones A spirit I'm craving in my soul You could feel it all But you don't even know Chorus: That I'm crushed out on you and you alone If I thought you had my number I'd stay home by the phone Day and night I sit and wait for you to call me But only time will show how far this can go Verse 2: I'm longing for the space and time to chill with you Thinking of the ways that I could keep my cool But this brown eyed girl And brown eyed boy Time stood still And passed us by Cause baby I I've been waiting for a little time Oh and you were so beautiful and that's ??? You're my kind of guy If I had a type of guy, I'd say it's you So don't let them bring you down Cause right about now I like having you around And if it's real that's where hearts resides Chorus: And I'm crushed out on you and you alone If I thought you had my number I'd stay home by the phone Day and night I sit and wait for you to call me But only time will show how far this can go Bridge: If you think of me Half as much as I do you Confide in me Lets play for keeps And I can tell you all the things I longed to say The future wants We'll find a way And we can let it go Chorus: Cause I'm crushed out on you and you alone If I thought you had my number I'd stay home by the phone Day and night I sit and wait for you to call me But only time will show how far this can go I'm crushed out on you and you alone If I thought you had my number I'd stay home by the phone Day and night I sit and wait for you to call me But only time will show how far this can go

Fly Away 03:49
Chorus: For you I'd leave I'd fly away For you I'd leave I'd fly away Verse 1: Every night before I sleep I try to find you in my window But you're so very far away And though everyone can see you But I look at you different Sometimes I wish you'd shine for me Oh I I can feel you I can't touch you It's not the same without you My world won't spin without you When I see you You know what I'll do Just that I'd like to have you I'd always have to share you Chorus: For you I'd leave I'd fly away For you I'd leave I'd fly away Verse 2: Sun won't set until you come I wish I could be the one You pull in like a tide for the sea You disappear I wonder why And I can't wait till goes to night It's not the same when you're not here Oooh I I can feel you I can't touch you It's not the same without you My world won't spin without you When I see you You know what I'll do Just that I'd like to have you I'd always have to share you Chorus: For you I'd leave I'd fly away For you I'd leave I'd fly away For you (for you) I'd leave (I'd leave) I'd fly away (Baby just fly away) For you I'd leave I'd fly away For you I'd leave I'd fly away For you I'd leave I'd fly away (Hand claps) And now the sun is setting The stars are almost shining All day I sit and wait for the moon.

Find A Way 03:25
They'll make you think it's the only way Cause theres always a price to pay But it's your road and your choice to make Start new today And I know we'll find a way I know we'll make a way I know we'll find a way Let's start new today On november 2nd election day I will be thinking that things could change I voted for the lesser of evil How many relate? And they did scream and move away Instead of ending all the hurt it brings? Someone 2005 To the 1958 Well I know Repeat Chorus I wonder how far things could escalade Before the streets light up in rage Civalry slipping away? What more will it take Till it's your cousin that dies of aids Till your pregnant daughter can't find a place Till most of the youth end up locked away A chance we can't take (I know we'll find a way) Repeat Chorus
10.
If We Knew 04:18
There was boy Bout two years old That's much too young Too see what would unfold His dad so bold So full of lies Caught up in things That would take his life He'd leave behind Old words unsaid His loved ones left To deal with it So when his boy got older With less than a little guidance Needed more assurance A little strength and courage But he knew what he knows now He may bewith us still If he knew what he knows now ooohhh 2nd verse There was girl Bout three years old To laugh and play Should have been what goes Her family moved From place to place Free spirits and Money they couldn't waste She'd be alone More times than few Too many men Trusted and out of view One took her in And used his mind Scarred her inside And changed her life So when she had daughters of her own Her memories could no longer escape her They affecetd all the choices that she would make But if she knew what she knows now She wouldn't take the blame If she knew what she knows now I was the girl Who felt so strong Bout anything In this world when I saw wrong I' anyalyze Sometimes cry alone When it got too much I had a place to turn I wish that I Could heal your pain Capture your truth secrets filled with shame Cuz if you want I'll tell the world All the things you couldn't say And hope that you can find your way Cuz I know what I know now I was preparing for today If we knew what we know now We could have made a better day If we knew what we know now We'd know there was a different way If we knew what we know now break But we all learn by example We can become our worst fear Certain lesson we should on Some don't serve us anymore Our parents rasied us how they knew how They didn't know a better way I just try as hard you do Cuz don't wanna make the same mistake Hope that you Can find your way Hope that you Can find your way Hope thatyou Can find your way

One day alone Sometimes it suits me When that day is through I'm hoping you'll walk in I just miss you I'll be okay But it's better when I'm with you My cornerstone You're who I go to The love that you've shown Doesn't compare to any unknown You're the exception, treasure (treasure) My patient love Forever enduring you, you Sweet ??? (Chorus) Oh You You Oh you you you You (Verse 2: Dwele) Unplug the phone No more disturbing our time alone It's always a journey All that I ask of you Is to stay past the pain for the pleasure (pleasure) It's been too long Come let me hold you Temptation's strong It's what we go through I'll last the storm A new day is born In the shadow of our love (Bridge: Both) One look at you You see right through me You know my moods You know what I'm thinking Feel what I'm feeling Cause you're my best friend true (Chorus) Oh you You Oh you you you You Hey (short music break) (Bridge: Both) One look at you You see right through me (you see) You know my moods You know what I'm thinking (oh) Feel what I'm feeling Cause you're my best friend true True You-- It's true You see through me You see through me You do Oh you(No doubt it's you baby) You Oh you you you You Oh you It's what I feel You Oh you you you You You you you baby Ummm Hello
12.
How can I go on Dawn is breaking But it's yours for taking I'm losing the battle of the heart Every time it turns to spring I think of you again And how I long to fly Fly free I'm standing at the edge of something beautiful But it hurts to try I'm scared it won't arrive Love everlasting But the dawn is breaking But it's yours for taking I'm losing the battle of the heart Oh Umm humm oh I'm losing the battle of the heart Umm Oh I don't want to surrender But that's when I can commend this thing There always comes this sweet hello And I feel way too far On the edge of something beautiful I never realized Just how to separate the two Fantasy from truth And running into you Then all of the reasons keep flashing before me But I can't do And I thought I was through The feeling was done The battle was over It's not over I'm losing the battle of the heart Oh Is it crazy I thought I could win Oh I'm losing the battle of the heart Oh Oh
13.
Verse 1: When you see me standing in here Cause I didn't walk alone There are pieces of you landing in here Somehow to make me whole Chorus: Cause you You're the darker side of the moon Always in the shadows Leaving me to shine shine shine You're the one who carried me through Held me in the sky Leaving me to shine shine Verse 2: Any time you pushed me When it felt like too much I know it made me grow And looking from the distance At a person who Who I wouldn't know Chorus: But you You're the darker side of the moon Always in the shadows Leaving me to shine shine shine You're the one who carried me through Held me in the sky Leaving me to shine From the stretches of the world Bridge: And more perspective than I wished for You showed that there is more Than what a ??? You never question worth You made a path wherever I go Giving far more than I asked for Oh you Chorus: You're the darker side of the moon (the darker side) Always in the shadows Leaving me to shine shine shine You're the darker side of the moon Always in the shadows Shine shine shine(leave, leaving me to shine) You're the one who carried me through Held me in the sky Leaving me to shine shine Shine

Good Love 03:25
I know sometimes I push you Say all that I do See if you'll still stay. I like to have my way. If I took you for granted just know, I never meant it I try to be thoughtful, and make sure my heart's pure CHORUS Good love is hard to hold That's why I'm squeezing tight Sometimes I don't feel you, you don't feel me, we?re distant, we need space, but I'm coming back for you 'cause you're my true blue. You're a Capricorn, I'm Cancer, and sometimes we can't relate, but we meet at the center that's where love is tender You're my first phone call, my best friend, you could never be replaced. If I'm not there beside you- I'm just a hop, skip, a jump away I question everything It's 10 years and I still can't get it straight just know that I love you always thinking of you CHORUS Good love is hard to hold That's why I'm squeezing tight Good love is hard to hold That's why I'm squeezing tight I love that you're so truthful, so willing to work it through, you love so brave. My passion is your flame. I don't want you to change. You kiss me softly under covers and you never make me beg and you even say 'thank you', and 'sorry' when you're rude I love you today in the purest way I love you today in the purest way Never, never never, never never been so sure before now never been so sure before, Don't think I could ask for more Never been so pure I love you today in the purest way I love you today in the purest way

about

Goapele is a phenomenal artist in every sense of the word. She paints vivid pictures of the stories she tells, a craft that few singers can truly do since they all tend to resort to whatever catchy hook is going to get them a Top 40 hit. The socially-conscious vibe as well as the wistful antidotes shape the very essence of who Goapele is and what her music is about. Even Closer (the revamped version of her independently released Closer) was released in 2002 and helped get her name out there to the contemporary soul crowd. Now over three years later, the sultry songstress returns with her second album Change It All. Luckily, she sticks to a similar formula on this album and doesn't adjust her sound too much.

The title track "Change It All" is the most melodic piece on the whole album, resorting mostly on a simple piano riff and Goapele's deep thoughts on the problems of the world and of your neighborhood. "First Love" takes a look back at the magical feelings we all felt with our initial relationships. "Different" talks about the how couples that start out okay can result in both sides drifting apart and hoping things can be worked out. "Crushed Out" talks about the warm feeling you get from being with your significant other. "Find A Way" is a mid-tempo cut about how we all need to start acting right and doing things for the greater good. "If We Knew" reflects on things we've learned about that we should have handled differently. "Battle Of My Heart" is a soft serenade about following your feelings without giving much thought to what the true consequences of your actions will be. "Darker Side Of The Moon" is a spirited anthem penned by longtime songwriter/producer Linda Perry.

There are a few experimental tracks like "Love Me Right" "4AM" and "Fly Away." But considering this is her second album, she has a little wiggle room to try some things without losing the listeners' interest. With a solid sophomore effort, Goapele has the material to capture new fans of her music. I've had the chance to see her perform live twice and both times she was phenomenal. If you get a chance to hear Change It All (see the Media Center to hear the entire album now) or catch her as an opening act, you will see that Goapele is a truly blessed singer. Hopefully you'll be as blessed as I am for hearing her music in the first place.
