ch ch ch changes


Life is like stepping into a boat that is about to sail out to sea and sink. — Shunryu Suzuki

for me, one of the most significant gifts we received from david bowie was permission to reinvent ourselves. try something on for a bit and then don’t feel saddled with that forever. you can always make a change.

i needed that permission. growing up a sissyboy in the 1970’s suburban chicago, that permission saved my sanity. i didn’t have to try to fit in to the mold of someone else’s idea of who i should be. i understood, i could be someone else. be different in different ways. my choice- not the bully’s choice. not the bigot’s choice. not the someone the homophobe decided. in some ways, i am sure that bowie’s transcendence saved my ass.

Changes David Bowie

I still don’t know what I was waiting for And my time was running wild A million dead-end streets Every time I thought I’d got it made It seemed the taste was not so sweet So I turned myself to face me But I’ve never caught a glimpse Of how the others must see the faker I’m much too fast to take that test

Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strain) Ch-ch-Changes Don’t want to be a richer man Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strain) Ch-ch-Changes Just gonna have to be a different man Time may change me But I can’t trace time

I watch the ripples change their size But never leave the stream Of warm impermanence and So the days float through my eyes But still the days seem the same And these children that you spit on As they try to change their worlds Are immune to your consultations They’re quite aware of what they’re going through

Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strain) Ch-ch-Changes Don’t tell t hem to grow up and out of it Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strain) Ch-ch-Changes Where’s your shame You’ve left us up to our necks in it Time may change me But you can’t trace time

Strange fascination, fascinating me Changes are taking the pace I’m going through

Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strain) Ch-ch-Changes Oh, look out you rock ‘n rollers Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strain) Ch-ch-Changes Pretty soon you’re gonna get a little older Time may change me But I can’t trace time I said that time may change me But I can’t trace time
