Tyrone Davis – “Can I Change My Mind?”

I got this on a Tyrone Davis box set years back during my free music days. It was the first song off the rank and has been pretty close to my heart ever since.

Tis a beaut lil funk-soul number but it’s the lyrics that get to me every time.  It’s not your average “I love you baby” or even a bluesy “My baby left me” nor even a modern RNB “I fuk heaps of chicks!” lyric. It’s a “man leaves woman, waits for her to beg for his return, and is concerned and regretful when she doesn’t”, a daft effort to get his woman to tow the line that fails spectacularly.

I’m not gonna get into his life story or any of that, lets just get with this one first

Enjoy!

Can I Change My Mind
TYRONE DAVIS
(DeSpenza / Wolfolk)

Aww, she didn’t bat an eye
As I packed my bags to leave
I thought she would start to cry
Or sit around my room and grieve
But y’all, the girl, she fooled me this time
She acted like I was the last thing on her mind
I would like to start all over again
Baby, can I change my mind
I just wanna change my mind
Baby, let me change my mind
As I took those steps
Toward that open door
Knowing all the time
Oh, Lord, I just didn’t wanna go
But she didn’t give me no sign
Nothing that would make me change my mind
I would like to start all over again
Baby, can I change my mind
Please, please, please, baby
I just wanna change my mind
Oh, I played my games
Many times before
But peoples, let me tell y’all
Oh, I never reached the door
But ooh, the winds howl tonight
I keep lookin’ back but my baby’s nowhere in sight
I would like to start all over again
Baby, can I change my mind
Please, please, please, baby
Baby, let me change my mind
