Change your World


I work on a youth volunteering programme. Our tagline is "Your platform to change your world..."

Today - in thinking of themes for our forthcoming photo exhibition - I have been considering a song written by a singer/songwriter I have known for far too many years now. It's called - unsurprisingly perhaps - Change your world...

And of course it is perfectly fit for purpose. Big themes, big ideas, sufficiently all encompassing to accomodate the random ideas our volunteers may come up with. But focussed enough to have real meaning and application. It wins on every count and my songwriter friend is a genius ...

Whatever the name we choose, whatever the outcome, we hope to launch or at least display at Greenbelt and tour nationally in the Autumn - big happy news :-)

And I was reminded. Of another day. Another lifetime. Another Greenbelt.

When very very late at night I sat in the almost dark with a dear friend and we listened to him sing that very same song and it was just for me. And how I cried ...

And I know that it's been rough
But your patience has to pay
And it can't be soon enough
And if I could have my way
I would change your world
I'd change it right away
And you're tired of chasing love
‘Cos it never seems to stay
And it can't be soon enough
And if I could have my way
I would change your world
I'd change it right away
