Change the Way I See Things

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. – Jesus (Mathew 7:3-5, NIV)

Change the Way I See Things
words and music by Mark Herring
 
 
 
V1          Sometimes getting started, is the hardest part of my day
Other times it’s easy, usually turns out it’s Saturday
When I can take it nice and easy, let the sunrise win the race
Ain’t no point in rushing off, when I’ve got this time to stay
 
 
Ch          And change the way I see things
Change way I things, when I don’t like the things I see
Change the way I see things
And it might get just a little bit better
Or a whole lot better, for you and me
 
 
V2          When I change the way I see things, the things I look at change
Just because they’ve always been there
Doesn’t mean the focus has to stay the same
If I could know the bigger picture
And see what was on its way
I take these opportunities to get ready for the changes
 
 
Ch          And change the way I see things
Change way I things, when I don’t like the things I see
Change the way I see things
And it might get just a little bit better
Or things might be a whole lot better
Yea it might get just a little bit better
Or a whole lot better, for you and me
 
 
V3          When I’m disgusted with the world today
And I don’t want to hear no more
I tune out the media, turn off the news and kill the noise
Then I can hear my favorite music, playing in a different room
In not too long, I realize
My choices make my moods
 
 
Ch          And change the way I see things
Change way I things, when I don’t like the things I see
Change the way I see things
And it might get just a little bit better
Or things might be a whole lot better
Yea it might get just a little bit better
Or a whole lot better
Yea it might get just a little bit better or a whole lot better
For you and me
 
When I change the way I see
