You’re Just a Fool, Just a Fool To Believe You Can Change The World

When I got home last night, my roommates’ girlfriend was watching American Idol and it was right before Carrie Underwood performed her song ‘Change’. I bought her newest album; “Play On”, when it came out and I had never listened to it so I hadn’t heard this song before. An outstanding performance and I really liked the song especially with her vocals. So I went into my room to see if I indeed had the song and added it to my favorites list.

This morning after I had my interview I was listening to the song and I had the feeling of being able to relate. Just listen to the words and I bet you can find things in your life that you can but in place of the verses if you can’t already relate to the existing lines.

What you gonna do with the 36 cents
Sticky with Coke on your floorboard
When a woman on the street is huddled in the cold
On a sidewalk then trying to keep warm
Do you call her over Hand her the change
Ask her her story
Ask her her name
Or do you tell yourself…

You’re just a fool
Just a fool to believe you can change the world
You’re just a fool
Just a fool to believe you can change the world

Oh, what you gonna do when you’re watching TV
And an ad comes on, yeah you know the kind
Flashing up pictures of a child in need
For a dime a day you could save a life
Do you call the number
Reach out a hand
Or do you change the channel
Call it a scam Or do you tell yourself…

You’re just a fool
Just a fool to believe you can change the world
Don’t listen to them when they say
You’re just a fool
Just a fool to believe you can change the world

Oh, the smallest thing can make all the difference
Love is a lot, don’t listen to them when they say
You’re just a fool
Just a fool to believe you can change the world

The world’s so big
It can break your heart
And you just wanna help
Not sure where to start
So you close your eyes
And send another prayer into the dark

Just a fool
Just a fool to believe you can change the world
Don’t listen to them when they say
You’re just a fool Just a fool to believe you can change the world

Oh, the smallest thing can make all the difference
Love is a lot, don’t you listen to them when they say
You’re just a fool
Just a fool to believe you can change the world
