Staind Everything Changes Lyrics

Last updated: 10/01/2013 09:30:49 AM

If you just walked away
What could I really say?
Would it matter anyway?
Would it change how you feel?

I am the mess you chose
The closet you cannot close
The devil in you i suppose
'Cause the wounds never heal

But everything changes
If I could
Turn back the years
If you could
Learn to forgive me
Then I could learn to feel

Sometimes the things I say
In moments of disarray
Succumbing to the games we play
To make sure that it's real

But everything changes
If I could
Turn back the years
If you could
Learn to forgive me
Then I could learn to feel

When it's just me and you
Who knows what we could do
If we can just make it through
The toughest part of the day

But everything changes
If I could
Turn back the years
If you could
Learn to forgive me
Then I could
Learn how to feel
Then we could
Stay here together
And we could
Conquer the world
If we could
Say that forever
Is more than just a word

If you just walked away
What could I really say?
And would it matter anyway?
It wouldn't change how you feel

It wasn't meant to be. | Reviewer: Arianne | 10/1/13

Actually, I did NOT know about this song until my guy ask me if I knew the song... then I listnened to it. It was meant for me. We are both married but our partners are not with us. We already had a chemistry when we first met. We tried to pushed away the disturbing thought. We tried just to be friends but as we go along we found ourselves falling for each other until one night we kissed and it was really nice. For 8 years of marriage, I have never thought I would like a kiss from another guy. We talked about it the other day and we continued being sweet to each other like normal couple but our conscience was bothering us and we started getting jealous of me to his wife and him to my husband. We fight and sometimes hurt each other until we stop. This became a cycle.. I always push him away but we kept finding ourselves back again and again. until one day I said I couldnt take it anymore beacause im becoming more and more inlove with him but we know deep inside we'll never be together forever because we both want the best for our own child. We couldnt break their hearts for our selfish reasons. I told him goodbye for real but he never said goodbye.. but I know its over. it hurst because I really did love him but its not right..we cant turn back the time.. I am moving on and im getting better each day because now when I think of him I start to smile and thought it was great and was real..EVERYTHING CHANGES

This song reminds me of when me and my husband were on drugs. We put each other through alot of unnecessary hardship because of drugs. Now we are still together and have been clean for three years. Life is great. Everything changes.

To Kirsty and anyone else in the same position | Reviewer: TJ | 3/17/12

I hope you read this post or have already found your answer. First of all, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU. You didn't do anything to deserve this treatment. It sounds like your boyfriend is suffering from a serious problem called Borderline Personality Disorder also known as (BPD). This song reminds me of my BPD husband who I am currently in the process of divorcing. Please read more about this disorder in the link below and also I would encourage you to research Codependence, that is also talked about on this website. Dealing with my own codependent behaviors has helped me realize how I let myself get into this situation. Please read this, do more research, and remember to stand up for yourself. You are worthy of real love and a loving relationship. Stop sacrificing yourself. You are not helping him and you are harming yourself.

Everything Changes... | Reviewer: Ki30 | 12/28/11

The song speaks for itself clearly in the words...there is no other meaning to this song...other then "Everything Changes"...its that lurking fear we all have had at one point or another of change...i feel that is why every single person in the world can relate to this song...one way or another in their own personal situations.
All In All, time will change everything.
Its our choice to accept it or let it break us completely.
For those of you who are upset about your exs...
Stop crying and Do!!
Tomorrow u could be dead and theyll never know what is in your soul unless u be Honest, Truthful, and Wise to know when itll never be, or when to just say fuxk it and jump!
Amen.

This song was posted on my myspace and facebook by my ex...I walked out on him after so stupid fight over my tires...I missed him more and more everyday and to see this posted one day i couldnt belive it.

broken | Reviewer: kiarra rice | 5/25/11

I had a summer fling with a guy and he told me he didnt believe in High School relationships. Two weeks later he had a girlfriend. While he had that girl friend I found the man of my dreams. But still the summer fling lingers in my head. And honestly I cant get over him. I told him to look up this song and to this day he cant talk to me cuz he broke up with his girlfriend for me the very same day i started dating my man. ha idk but this song reminds me of him.

I am heartbroken | Reviewer: Fat Chipmunk | 3/13/11

The guy I am madly in love with me broke up with me so many times over stupid reasons. Ive tried to hard to give him everything that I am and everything that I have and it still isnt enough. He always thinks its my fault and that our relationship sucks. He told me that he doesnt want this anymore but i refuse to give up and keep begging him to try again with me. I just wish we can have a different start. We had a really rocky start and we didnt have trust. Only if we can start all over just me and him, from a clean slate and let the love take over. I always believe that love conquers all but I've had my heart broken sooo many times in the last 10 years that I don't have much fait anymore. I love you PS, I wish you would see thru all of this and come back to me and put some effort in to make this work. I know we have our differences but I love you and I believe we can be happy. If I have lost you for good then pls forget me...(I love Pablo Neruda's poem If you forget me it makes me cry everytime)

The devil in U | Reviewer: Omen | 1/14/11

I had this song years ago but didn't like so much like now
a week ago I broke up with the love of my life & death
I cannot even ask 4 her 4giveness
we had our highs N lows, 4gave N moved on
now she found out that I cheated on her again
I dont know what 2 say or do all I know is that I was dumb N I cant live without her, I'll never move on coz I know that my heart is black 2 all but her
I just dont know what 2 say, my life's fading 2 black N full of regrets
I'll never feel the way I felt with her... I know
I am the mess U chose
the closet U cannot close
the devil in U I suppose
I love U Mary N always will N deep down I know she can't 4give

Best Friend | Reviewer: Content | 10/20/10

All of these comments are about love that has been ruined by cheating or some misunderstanding. This song reminds me and my best guy friend (who has always had a crush on me, until this year). We use to ride around and talk while we listen to staind. I wish i had that back, we aren't as close anymore, bc i went back to a guy that he told me to stay away from. I think i losted him.. i hope he could forgive me one day, because i would go back in time and change everything just so i could have him back again. This song has always reminded me of him.

Amazing | Reviewer: anonomous | 9/30/10

So the firs little bit of this makes me cry so much... This song fits me and the father of my child so well.. hha Well the part about being the mess he chose and the closet he cant close.. I had his kid so I will always be apart of him, but I was a herion addict and I was such a mess... and the other part about words you say to make sure that its real he would tear me up inside and out... And now we arent together but still love each other we fight all the time and our constantly hurting each other... I listen to this and it calms me... Still wishing I could take back time not did the things I did and remember how to feel...

What I think it means | Reviewer: Jenny | 9/27/10

I think this song is about two people who have been together a very long time, who've had problems, which changed their relationship, I think he is trying to say that if they can forgive and move on they can still be happy, and yes everything changes, but that doesn't mean it has to be over, they can still have forever. I dunno, thats what it means to me, you can play one song for a hundred people, and it will mean something different to every single one of them. To mean, definitely a love song I dedicated it to my man. We've had major disapointments in our relationship, but we have forgiven and moved on and decided that what we had was worth it. I love you baby sooo much!

no turning back now | Reviewer: betty friendly | 8/1/10

this song is bittersweet.

i had someone break my heart over and over again, until i was numb of all emotion. he has finally realized its finally over, and feels he can't live with out me, but i'm not ever coming back. i've moved on.

everything changes...

What it means to me | Reviewer: beastchicky | 1/10/10

Firstly, after reading coraline fanfics all day, you cant help but think of coraline, and one of the wybie's.

Secondly, it reminds me of my fave couple, beast boy and terra. (Check out my youtube account for more info)

Third, my friend wrote a story. it reminds me of 2 of the characters, Peter and charlie. Charlie is Peter's multiple personality, that resides in the closet, and anywhere dark (for more info, comment me on youtube):
The closet you cannot close
The devil in you i suppose

Last, and most important, me and my best friend. I dont wanna go into many details, but I miss her so much, as she does me. It's her parent's fault we havent seen each other in over a year.

this song hits me so close to home, especially with my friend.
