Lyrics

  • I'm Gonna Make A Change,
  • For Once In My Life
  • It's Gonna Feel Real Good,
  • Gonna Make A Difference
  • Gonna Make It Right . . .


  • As I, Turn Up The Collar On My
  • Favorite Winter Coat
  • This Wind Is Blowin' My Mind
  • I See The Kids In The Street,
  • With Not Enough To Eat
  • Who Am I, To Be Blind?
  • Pretending Not To See
  • Their Needs
  • A Summer's Disregard,
  • A Broken Bottle Top
  • And A One Man's Soul
  • They Follow Each Other On
  • The Wind Ya' Know
  • 'Cause They Got Nowhere
  • To Go
  • That's Why I Want You To
  • Know
