“I Don’t Want To Change You”

The Icelandic landscape. The lake. Damien. The eerie reverse mode.

Wherever you go
Well, I can always follow
I can feed this real slow
If it’s a lot to swallow
And if you just want to be alone
Well, I can wait without waiting
If you want me to let this go
Well, I am more than willing

Oh, ’cause I don’t want to change you
I don’t want to change you,
I don’t want to change your mind
I just came across a manger
Out among the danger
Somewhere in a stranger’s eye

Oh, and I don’t want to change you
I don’t want to change you,
I don’t want to change your mind
I just came across a manger
Out among the danger
Somewhere in a stranger’s eye

I’ve never been with anyone
In the way I’ve been with you
But if love is not for fun,
Then it’s doomed, ’cause

Water races,
Water races down the waterfall,
The water races,
Water races down the waterfall

And I don’t want to change you
I don’t want to change you,
I don’t want to change your mind
I just came across a manger
Where there is no danger
Where love has eyes and is not blind

The stripped down version. Real. I don’t know why this verse is not in the official video, but always sang in live recordings.

Wherever you are
Well, know that I adore you
No matter how far
Well, I can go before you
And if ever you need someone
Well, not that you need helping
But if ever you want someone
I know that I am willing

Oh, ’cause I don’t want to change you
I don’t want to change you,
I don’t want to change your mind
I just came across a manger
Out among the danger
Somewhere in a stranger’s eye
