Amy Rigby – Don’t Ever Change Lyrics

I took a walk in a small town Sunday morning

Just to see what was going on

Sat watching two guys fishing in the river running through

Like there was nothing wrong, nothing wrong

They had their lines in the water ten feet apart

Beer guts, t-shirts, me with my heavy heart

I don’t have religion but I’m trying to pray

And I never liked fishing but I wanted to stand up and say

Hey I love you, you’re perfect, don’t ever change

Don’t ever change

Hey I love you, you’re perfect, don’t ever change

I picked my daughter up at school last week

She had her headphones on, she barely said hello

And all I wanted was to hug her, smother her with kisses

But I was cool, like hi there, how did it go?

She had chipped nail polish, writing on her hand

She was nodding her head to her favorite band

Staring into space like she was all alone

But I didn’t take it personal

It meant that I was home and I said

Hey I love you, you’re perfect, don’t ever change

Don’t ever change

Hey I love you, you’re perfect, don’t ever change

Don’t ever change

I’m holding on to everything that’s good in this world

There’s a lot that’s good in this world

I saw my baby sitting there at the breakfast table

His hair a mess and he forgot to shave

And I wished that he would get up, make it all better

Stop drinking so much, learn how to behave

Then the radio was playing a Chuck Berry song

And he was looking at me asking what was wrong

I made a list of the things I could say

But he gave me a wink and it all went away, I told him

Hey I love you, you’re perfect, don’t ever change

Don’t ever change

Hey I love you, you’re perfect, don’t ever change

Don’t ever change
