No Change In Me

Words & Music by Ron Hynes, Murray McLauchlan
As Performed by Allison Crowe

You'd shoot off a cannon
In the middle of Bond
'attract no attention in downtown St. John's
This getting of nowhere is getting to me
Wondering where you can go
To be all you can be

No regular Joe wants to haul up and go
and wind up homesick
With no one you know
Just a smoke and a beer
And sports on tv
Feeling sorry you left
But no choice but to leave

No change in the weather
No change in me
I don't want to leave
But you can't live for free

And you can't eat the air, you can't drink the sea
No change in the weather
No change in me

You could shoot off a cannon
from the top of Long's Hill
and a Gulliver's taxi might be all you would kill
We were promised the sun
The moon and the stars
We got weathered old clapboard and salt-rusted cars

So let me join in, leaving with all of the rest
Montreal, Calgary, and Vancouver west
Lay down on a sidewalk
and kick off and die
Watch people not looking
As they hurry by

No change in the weather
and no change in me
I don't want to leave
But you can't live for free

And you can't eat the air, and you can't drink the sea
No change in the weather
No change in me

No change in the weather
No change in me

I don't want to leave
But you can't live for free

And you can't eat the air, and you can't drink the sea
No change in the weather
No change in me
