Story

Indie Artist Darla Day's song "Different" details her son Jenson's journey with cerebral palsy. The song idea came about when Jenson explained to Darla and her husband Chad that "he liked being different because different people change the world."

"Different people change the world" T-Shirts are available right here on Darla's website in the Merch Store!

"DIFFERENT"

Kids stare as he rolls on by
They say "what's wrong with him?"
Way too many times
Of course he can talk
Of course he can hear
It's just another day, just another year

chorus:
If they could only see
All the hidden possibilities
Same hopes, same dreams
He just plays a different way
If they would only wait
Stay and hear all that he has to say
They'd hear him say
"Some people stay the same
But different people change the world"

Mountains are in front of him
But his determination
Will never dim
He knows that he can
If he just gets a chance
He's waiting on the edge ready to dance

(chorus)

Invite the uninvited
Pick the last one standing
Be kind to every kind
Look for unique
Their difference could be
Exactly what you need

(chorus)

Some people stay the same
But different people change the world

Kids stare as he rolls on by
They say "what's wrong with him?"
Way too many times
