Matt Gerber is a singer-songwriter who contributed his talents and voice in support of “Songs to Recovery” which takes place the third Saturday of every February.
My thoughts at the time were about trying to compose a song that had different levels of meaning. At first I was only thinking of external changes, and ways that we can make the world better for ourselves and for others. Now I think that it also is true for internal changes, because all change comes from within to begin with anyway. What we decide to do, or not to do, will always make a difference. To borrow a phrase, the longest journey starts with the first step.

THE SMALLEST CHANGE
I count my pennies, my nickles and dimes, To see me through, leaner times. And I am lucky, they've been few. I can't be blind, and claim to care, When there's enough, with more to spare, And when the balance, sometimes fails, I can tip the scales. The smallest change..... One by one by one by one by one by one, It all adds up to something amazing. Every little bit, every little bit, every little bit helps. It don't take much, but it goes a long way. The smallest change, the smallest change. The smallest change, the smallest change. The smallest change, the smallest change, Can make all the difference in the world to someone else. The smallest change, the smallest change, It don't take much but it goes a long way, it goes a long way, a long way. The right word, at the right time, Reaching out with a helping hand. Taking a moment to listen, Taking the time to understand, to understand. The smallest change, the smallest change The smallest change, the smallest change.
