Psalm/Psong for April 2 – “Same Changes” by The Weepies

The first and only time I used the Shazam application on my “smart” phone was while watching an otherwise fairly forgettable movie “Morning Glory.” Several of the songs on the soundtrack left me wishing that the movie would hurry along so I could see what the songs were in the credits. This psong was one of them.

The Weepies always find new ways to give me goosebumps. The goosebump moment for me in this psong, every time, is during the last two verses, particularly this line: “And everyone says/This love will change you/Well I ask, isn’t that what love’s supposed to do?” Doesn’t get more psalmy than that.

This was one of the few videos of this song that I could embed here. It’s not much to look at, so I recommend that you cue it up, close your eyes, and listen to all the layers of sound that are The Weepies.

Arms around my body
Kisses on my skin
I walk away
I walk away
But he lingers

Maybe it should matter
More to be myself
I walk away
I walk away
But he lingers

And everyone says
This love will change you
Well I ask, does anything ever stay the same
No, no, no
Just same changes

Ooh (changes, the same)

In the magic hour
Lantern petals glow
I walk away
I walk away
But you linger

Light as any flower
You don’t even know
You pick me up
You pick me up
With two fingers

And everyone says
This love will change you
Well I ask, does anything ever stay the same
No, no, no
Just same changes

Ooh (changes, the same)

Every day I want to freeze frame
Scrambling my sleep to keep this fragile flame
From the wind, from the driving rain
Soon as it begins it begins to change it’s strange changes

Ooh (changes, the same)

Careful and with patience
Hold this tender heart
Weave a well of tiny threads with two fingers
Standing in the garden
Gathering the dusk
We hold the sun and golden one and we linger

And everyone says
This love will change you
Well I ask, isn’t that what love’s supposed to do
Yeah, yeah, yeah
It’s same changes

Ooh (changes, the same)
