Charles Bradley performs soulful cover of Black Sabbath’s ‘Changes’
Am I right? The last tune you’re gonna do for us is ‘Changes’ Which is a tune by Black Sabbath. You don’t strike me as the average Black Sabbath man. How did this tune cross your path? Umm… Mr. Thomas Brennan? asked me to do this song. Never heard of the guy but the lyrics were so powerful and I was going through a crisis, my mom was very ill and I was watching her suffer and that has hurt me to my heart and I didn’t want to do this song but the first verses were very hard for me to do because I didn’t want to accept it but when I saw my mom once she took her last breath the second verse just came so naturally I didn’t have to rehearse it. I didn’t have to think about it. I looked at it once she said her last goodbye to me and boy, even today when I sing this song I get truly emotional. Well it’s a beautiful version man. I think they’ll all agree with me once they hear it. *music* I feel unhappy. I feel so sad. I have lost the best friend that I ever had. She was my woman. I loved her so But it’s too late now. I let her go. Listen now. I’m going through changes. I’m going through changes. Oooooooohhh. I’t hurt so bad. in my life is gonna be a change. in my life Uhhhhhh Whoah We shared the years We shared each day In love together We found a way But soon the world had its evil way. My heart was cryin’ Love went astray. Whoah I’m going through changes. I’m going through changes. Oooohh It hurts so bad in my life. It’s gonna be a change in my life. Somebody gotta help me. Whoah And this is the part that hurt me the deepest. It took so long To realize Momma I can still hear her last goodbye. And now all my days have turned to tears I wish I could go back And change these years. Whoah I’m going through changes I’m going through changes. Lord It hurts so bad in my life it’s gonna be change in my life Somebody gotta help me Whoah Woo Oh man Charles Bradley, please give him as much thank you applause as you possibly can.
