Things Must Change - 2011

about

This has been around in many versions, but this one is different.

Recorded live in "The Shed" with an augmented PBGB: Ken Vatcher (drums), Brian Kille (sax), Chris Ralfs (bass), Gus Washbourne (guitar), Neil Porter (guitar/vocals).

Due to some difficulties with our gear, the vocals had to be re-recorded separately, which was disappointing as the live vocals (with Peter Reid on bgv) sounded better while we were doing it.

For me (Neil) it is really nice to hear this very different, but pretty cool version of this song.

Brian and Ken were new to the song, and I think this was our second run at it.

lyrics

Things Must Change
© Neil Porter 2007

You’ve got your hoodie up
The cone of silence down
Your buds are in your ears
Don’t want to turn around
Things have to change
Things just have to change

You’re staying out all night
I don’t know who you’re seeing
Get home and want a fight
You think I’ve got no feelings?
Things have to change
Things just have to change

This just can’t go on
Don’t know what’s gone wrong
But I want us to talk about it
You’ve got me seeing red
I don’t know what I said
But we’ve just got to talk about it
This just can’t go on
And I don’t know what I’ve done wrong
But I want us to talk about it
Talk about it

It’s not so long ago
We used to be best friends
There was no toe to toe
There were no rifts to mend
Things have to change
Things just have to change

Things can’t go on this way
You know what I’m saying
Another week like this
And I’m not staying
Things have to change
Things just have to change

This just can’t go on
Don’t know what’s gone wrong
But I want us to talk about it
You’ve got me seeing red
I don’t know what I said
But we’ve just got to talk about it
This just can’t go on
And I don’t know what I’ve done wrong
But I want us to talk about it
We’ve just got to talk about it

If things don’t pick up soon
I don’t know what I’ll do
You mean so much to me
I thought I meant the same to you
I just don’t understand
The way you make me feel
I can’t take it anymore
Things just have to change
