about

This was written for a stage production of a show for children's theater based on a book by Troy Aikman. I've always liked the message.

lyrics

There are many paths you can follow, to the goal that lights your eyes
Through all the hills and detours, don't look away,
keep your heart on the game, you will win life's greatest prize

Life is a game of chances, things won't always go your way
A chance that's never taken, is opportunity lost,
and you won't know the cost till you face it again someday

Be a champion of change
If the road is blocked, climb over, there's always another way
Just remember when things change, you can change them back again
by learning strength from the pain
You can be a champion of change

There are times when you might stumble, times when you might fall
The obstacles that trip you, are the building blocks
for the steps you will take to answer your own inner call

We are in this world together, we all deserve a chance
If you find a dream to guide you, never doubt your own heart,
listen close when it sings and learn the next step in the dance

Be a champion of change
If the road is blocked, climb over, there's always another way
Just remember when things change, you can change them back again
by learning strength from the pain
You can be a champion of change

Fate must be a dancer, it all seems prearranged
And it choreographs the dance so well
that we learn the greatest lessons when things change

When the sun comes up tomorrow, it will all have been worthwhile
It made it through all that darkness, to rise up again,
break through the clouds and show the world your style

Be a champion of change
If the road is blocked, climb over, there's always another way
Just remember when things change, you can change them back again
by learning strength from the pain
You can be a champion of change
You can be a champion of change
You can be a champion of change
You can be a champion... when things change

about

Schweitzer Los Angeles, California

My brother started writing songs and that was the spark that started me on my own songwriting course that would last the rest of my life. I chose to use my surname, "Schweitzer," for practical reasons, realizing long ago that pronouncing "Richard Schweitzer" was difficult. "Schweitzer Projects" under the "tindog music & stuff" umbrella is producing songs in the Pop / Pop rock or folk categories ... more
