Change Your Mind

Change Your Mind is a song by Sister Hazel that came out in 2000 on the album entitled, Fortress. The band was formed in 1993 in Florida, and they were named for Sister Hazel Williams, a local missionary who ran a homeless shelter.

The song’s lyrics repeat a lot (hey–kind of like affirmations! 🙂 ) and they speak to the power of your mind to influence your life experience. The song does all this in a way that will make you tap your feet and maybe even get up and bust a move, if you are so inclined 🙂

I love it when important ideas (in my opinion) make it into pop culture ?✌

Change Your Mind by Sister Hazel

Skip to 1:12 if you don’t want to hear instrumental intro 🙂

 

Hey, hey
Did you ever think
There might be another way
To just feel better,
Just feel better about today
Oh no
If you never want to have
To turn and go away
You might feel better,
Might feel better if you stay
Yeah yeah
I bet you haven’t heard
A word I’ve said
Yeah yeah
If you’ve had enough
Of all your tryin’
Just give up
The state of mind you’re in
If you want to be somebody else,
If you’re tired of fighting battles with yourself
If you want to be somebody else
Change your mind
Hey hey
Have you ever danced in the rain
Or thanked the sun
Just for shining, just for shining
Or the sea?
Oh no, take it all in
The world’s a show
And yeah, you look much better,
Look much better when you glow
Yeah yeah
I bet you haven’t heard
A word I’ve said
Yeah yeah
If you’ve had enough
Of all your tryin’
Just give up
The state of mind you’re in
If you want to be somebody else,
If you’re tired of fighting battles with yourself
If you want to be somebody else
Change your mind
Hey hey
what ya say
We both go and seize the day
’cause what’s your hurry
what’s your hurry anyway
Yeah yeah
I bet you haven’t heard
A word I’ve said
Yeah yeah
If you’ve had enough
Of all your tryin’
Just give up
The state of mind you’re in
If you want to be somebody else,
If you’re tired of fighting battles with yourself
If you want to be somebody else
Change your mind
