​Am I Ever Gonna Change?

This song is by Extreme and appears on the album III Sides to Every Story (1992).

Original video
I'm tired of being me
And I don't like what I see
I'm not who I appear to be

So I start off every day
Down on my knees, I will pray
For a change in any way

But as the day goes by
I live through another lie
If it's any wonder why

Am I ever gonna change?
If I say one thing then I do the other
It's the same old song that goes on forever

Am I ever gonna change?
Will I always stay the same? (change)
If I say one thing then I do the other
It's the same old song that goes on forever

(Am I ever gonna change?)
I'm the only one to blame (blame)
When I think I'm right, I wind up wrong
It's a futile fight that's gone on too long

Please tell me if it's true
Am I too old to start anew?
'Cause that's what I want to do

But time and time again
When I think I can
I fall short in the end

So why do I even try?
Will it matter when I die?
Can anyone hear my cry?

Am I ever gonna change?
Will I always stay the same? (change)
If I say one thing then I do the other
It's the same old song that goes on forever

(Am I ever gonna change?)
I'm the only one to blame (blame)
When I think I'm right, I wind up wrong
It's a futile fight gone on too long

Am I ever gonna change?
Will I always stay the same? (change)
If I say one thing then I do the other
It's the same old song that goes on forever

(Am I ever gonna change?)
I'm the only one to blame (blame)
When I think I'm right I wind up wrong
It's a fucking fight gone on too long

(Am I ever gonna change?)
I take it day by day (change)
My will is weak 'cause my flesh too strong
Peace I seek till thy kingdom come
