Lyrics

Looking back I can still remember
The day a stranger came to town
He didn't say much of anything
so why did everybody
try and put him down?
I must admit he looked
a little different
Maybe we just didn't understand
I knew that he'd never
fit into the system
But from his eyes I could
see he had a plan

There was a moment of fatal hesitation
They didn't like a stranger
Playing the game
But if he was faced with
that kind of situation
wasn't that the time to make a change?

(Chorus)
As time goes by
There's one thing I have come to realize
The time goes by
Never let yourself be forced to compromise

But even now I remember
The way you made me feel
And I've been living with the question
Where are you now?

All change!

As time goes by
There's one thing I have come to realize
The time goes by
Never let yourself be forced to compromise

As time goes by
There's one thing I have come to realize
The time goes by
Never let yourself be forced to compromise

As time goes by
There's one thing I have come to realize
The time goes by
And the stranger's still a giant in my eyes

As time goes by
The time goes by
As time goes by
