CHANGED OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD

LYRICS:

In my day - an expressway
In his day - a bridge
Changed our neighbourhood
Changed our neighbourhood
I saw the changes
Through saddened eyes
He saw the changes for the good.

While he took many photos
I just took a few
Changed our neighbourhood
Changed our neighbourhood
Falling walls and chimneys
Steel jibs across the sky
And four stone pylons rising high.

He watched from his verandah
He saw the bridge rise high
Changed our neighbourhood
Changed our neighbourhood
He used the bridge in parables
To teach God’s word with zeal
Such insights his photos could reveal.

His thoughts on the expressway
I never got to hear
Changed our neighbourhood
Changed our neighbourhood
We met when he was older
I was shy and ten
And I’d just won a camera then.

Repeat verse 1
