Sanctus Real Releases Their Upcoming Single “Changed” Two Weeks Early to Help Raise Funds for Hurricane Harvey Relief
1 September 2017 – Toledo, OH – To help those in Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey, Sanctus Real is wanting to do their part to help, and they are asking for your help too. Today the band announced they are offering their upcoming single, “Changed,” two weeks early to their fans in hopes to raise money to directly help the families and community of Rockport, Texas. The band was originally scheduled to perform in Rockport at Seafair on October 15.
“Watching a town we are scheduled to perform in later this Fall get hit by Hurricane Harvey caused us to want to find a way to help immediately,” Sanctus Real’s Chris Rohman shares. “In the midst of such tragedy we thought that offering our song ‘Changed’ would be a great way to encourage others that any amount, no matter how big or small, can make an impact for a town like Rockport, Texas. We hope that by giving away a not-yet-released song can help encourage our audience to give to such a needed cause.” “Changed” is officially scheduled to release on Sept. 12.
To receive “Changed” as well as their current single “Safe In My Father’s Arms,” please visit SanctusReal.com. Every amount donated, whether big or small, will go straight to the people of Rockport, TX.
Find out more by visiting the town’s website, which features all of the latest information about their relief efforts, a Go Fund Me page as well as letters from the city’s mayor.
“CHANGED” lyrics by Chris Rohman, Dustin Lolli, Benji Cowart and Josh Bronleewe
I thought it’d be different Was hoping by now I would be closer Have it all figured out Been counting the reasons Been feeling the weight Of all of my failures And every mistake
And though I cannot see I know you promised me You’re making a new heart where the old one used to be
I’m gonna be changed A little each day Even when I fall I’ll trust you when you say I’m gonna be changed By Your Grace You won’t let me stay the same as yesterday I’m gonna be Changed
I look in the mirror I see in my face the pain that I’ve carried Is being replaced There’s a brighter future I see it in my eyes There used to be darkness but now there’s a fire
And now that I can see Everything You promised me You’re making a new heart I’m not who I used to be
Cause the One who began a good work in me Is faithful to make me complete You’re the Author, Perfector, my Hope and my Healer The reason that I believe I can change, Oh I can change
