Rascal Flatts, “Changed”

Country superstars Rascal Flatts has released Changed as the third single and title track off its latest album, Changed. After the number one success of Banjo and the Top 10 success of its follow-up, Come Wake Me Up,” Gary Levox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney take a bit of a gamble with this clearly spiritual single. It may not be skyrocketing up the country charts – although number 37 isn’t anything to sneeze at, and it’s still rising – but clearly it’s making an impact on the Contemporary Christian radio charts, where the song is one of the most added tracks at AC and Soft Inspo. This is the first Christian chart ink for Levox and company, and it may very well become a Top 10 hit.

CHANGED Lyrics

I came up out of the water
Raise my hands up to the Father
Gave it all to Him that day

Felt a new wind kiss my face
Walked away, eyes wide open
Could finally see where I was goin’

It didn’t matter where I been
I’m not the same man I was then

I got off track, I made mistakes
Backslid my way into that place where souls get lost
Lines get crossed
And the pain won’t go away
I hit my knees, Now here I stand
There I was, now here I am
Here I am
Changed

I got a lot of “Hey, I’m sorry’s”
The things I’ve done, man that was not me
I wish I could take it all back
I just want to tell ’em that
Tell ’em that

I got off track, I made mistakes
Backslid my way into that place where souls get lost
Lines get crossed
And the pain won’t go away
I hit my knees, Now here I stand
There I was, now here I am
Here I am

I’ve changed for the better
More smiles, that’s better
I even started to forgive myself

I hit my knees, I’m here, I stand
There I was, now here I am
Here I am, Here I am
I’m changed
Yes, I am
I’m changed for the better

Thank God, I’m changed
