"You've Changed My Mind" lyrics - BONNIE RAITT

"You've Changed My Mind"

I'd hidden away
The pains of the day
And the strain of my eyes to see -
The grain of my skin
At the start of the end
Of all I once thought I could be
The page has been bent
Like an ear, and I've spent
Too much just to straighten a line -
But you've waited as still
As the stone of my will
And I know you've changed my mind

The beast in this room
Paces and moons
He's restless and needs to be fed -
He moves in for keeps
At the first sign of sleep
He groans and nuzzles my head
I gave nearly all
To building the wall
That could hide me forever behind -
But now even my doubt
Seems to know a way out
And I know you've changed my mind

How little I knew
Three that I grew
Was not just to root me down -
But might stand to wave
When the passing of days
Begged for a view off the ground
My faith had grown cold
And all I'd been told
Convinced me that just comes with time -
But a page has been turned
Some old fears unlearned
And I know you've changed my mind
