I love the guitars - accoustic at the beginning, and bass throughout. Very few bands have a bass player who can lead the song like Yes's guy.  This song was played before music videos, (dang I'm showing my age... I just remember those days lol) so the music and lyrics had to paint a picture, what that picture is I'm not sure, i kind of imagine it as a 4 year old doing finger painting (very messy) and as that child artist grows they "refine" their skills and draw lines, and precision... wasnt it picasso who said he needed to learn to draw like a child again... thats what the cubism era was about .. kind a sorta...

 

Jon Anderson explained the meaning of this song at a concert at San Michelle winery just north of Seattle, Eashington ......Driving through the sound refers to Puget Sound, the area in which Seattle Lies ..the lake is Lake Washington, and the Mountain is Mount Raineer, by far the most picturesque in the United States and the snowiest place on earth with an average snowfall of over 400 inches a year.  It looks like a a giant snowcone Rising off Lake Washington.  If I recall there was a recording studio there ( didnt deep purple do smoke on the water from there?!?) and they also did many a gig there.

 

to paraphrase Rick Wakeman - what the hell do the lyrics mean?

 

 wasn't  part of Yes approach,  to give powerful visual images that, in a gestalt-like manner, relate emotion and energy in a more powerful way than trying to intellectualize them.

I think, at the time they wrote this song, they were kind of exploring a metaphysical world through sound and music. In some ways they are sharing with the listeners and in some ways they are exploring with us. which kind of ties in with frequencies for me... frequencies frequencies my life is so full of audiology, acoustics and frequencies.. vibes! perhaps I should stop and start listening to them!

 

change is always difficult to accept, it is often used as a weapon... "you've changed", "I'm not going to change" "i'm going through some changes" often change is used to isolate and forms a barrier from others, yet the song is kind of circular like the roundabout and says I'll come back to you!

 

hey ho ...this is so random... I dont know.... I think I need another coffee shot to get my head working right ... you know I'll be humming this tune all day now dont ya!

This song kind of sounds like the world and its Governments.. instead of talking about lovers or a woman...what do yall think?
Read the lyrics and you will see what I mean..

Peace,Love and CHANGES for the good of ALL!! <3

Lyrics:
I'm moving through some changes
I'll never be the same
Something you did touched me
There's no one else to blame

The love we had has fallen
The love we used to share
We've given up pretending
As if you didn't care

Change changing places
Root yourself to the ground
Capitalize on this good fortune
One word can bring you round
Changes

I look into the mirror
I see no happiness
All the warmth I gave you
Has turned to emptiness
The love we had has fallen
The love we used to share
You've left me here believing
In love that wasn't there

Change changing places
Root yourself to the ground
Word to the wise - Well you get what's coming
One word can bring you round
Changes

When I look into your eyes and try to find out how
There's no way to save it now
And everything I feel
Changes
Keep looking for
Changes
Changes

For some reason you're questioning why
I always believe it gets better
One difference between you and I
Your heart is inside your head

One word from you
One word from me
A clear design on your liberty
Who could believe when love has gone
How we move on like everyone

Only such fools
Only such jealous hearts

Only through love changes come

Change changing places
Root yourself to the ground
Capitalize on this good fortune
One word can bring you round
Changes

One road to loneliness
It's always the same
One road to happiness
It's calling your name

Change changing places - Changes
Root yourself to the ground
Capitalize on this good fortune
One word can bring you round
Changes

Change changing places
Changes
Root yourself to the ground
Word to the wise - Well you get what's coming
One word- One word can bring you round
Changes!!
