"Can't Change Me" Chris Cornell

Lovin' on some Chris Cornell as we jump back into Musical Mondays.

I started listening to Chris (Chris' solo work, I've loved Soundgarden for awhile and like a lot of Audioslave as well) after my husband covered 'Call Me a Dog' and I really loved it. I'm love a lot of Chris' covers and his own work and I of course run into the ones I'm not partial too.
I choose this song for this week for two reasons- I'm headed to visit my family soon and the power of the phrase "you can't change me" has always been an important few words to me and I'm sure a lot of you can relate. The other point of power that I love in the this song is about the chick, "she's going to change the world" it's just a phrase that kicks my ass into gear. Just can't get enough of that on a Monday. And all the lyrics in between. I love Chris' poetry.
Here's the lyrics-

"Can't Change Me"

She can do anything at all
Have anything she pleases
The power to change what she thinks is wrong
But what could she want with me? Yeah,
Wait, just, one minute here
I can see that she's trying to read me
Suddenly I know,

She's going to change the world [x3]
But she can't change me,
No, she can't change me

She has the daylight at her command
She gives the night it's dreams, yeah
She can uncover your darkest fear,
and make you forget you feel it.
But wait, just, one minute more,
I can see that she's trying to free me
Suddenly I know


Suddenly I can see everything that's wrong,
With me, yeah.
What can I do, I'm the only thing I really have, at all.

But wait, just, one minute here,
I can see that she's trying to need me
Suddenly I know

So I know it's Monday but keep your chin up, we are rooting for you to kick ass today!
