About Change Your Life

"Change Your Life" is a song by British girl group Little Mix from their debut studio album, DNA (2012). The track was written by the group members, Ash Howes, and its producers Richard Stannard and Tim Powell. Being the first song Little Mix wrote together as a group, it was inspired by their experiences as contestants on the eighth UK series of The X Factor and their fans. The lyrics, according to group member Jade Thirlwall, are about feeling better about yourself and making something of your life. It is a midtempo pop ballad with piano and violin accompaniment, and brief drum and bass breaks. The song was released on 15 February 2013 as the album's third single to mixed reviews from music critics who complimented Little Mix's vocals but were ambivalent to its empowerment theme. "Change Your Life" peaked at number 12 on the UK Singles Chart, and charted in the top 10 in Australia and the top 20 in Ireland. The group perform the song in a studio in the accompanying music video which includes backstage footage from their first two headlining tour dates. The band promoted the single with televised performances on Children in Need, Dancing on Ice, The Graham Norton Show and This Morning. The track has been performed on four of their concert tours, the most recent being the Summer Hits Tour in 2018.

She captures her reflection then she throws the mirror to the floor
Her image is distorted screaming, "Is it worth it anymore?"
No-oh-oh
Are you scared of the things that they might put you through?
Does it make you wanna hide the inner you?

You’re not the only one so let them criticize, oh oh oh
You’re untouchable when you realize, oh oh oh

Change, change your life, take it all
We’re gonna stick together, know we’ll get through it all
Change, change your life, take it all (yeah, take it all)
You’re gonna use it to become what you’ve always known
(Become what you’ve always known)

His body starts to flicker like nobody wants to know his name
Just another soul with feelings but nobody's there to feel the pain
No, no, no

They can rip you, bring you down, down to their size
But they will never get to the heart you hold inside
Mm, mm, mm

You’re not the only one so let them criticize
You’re untouchable when you realize
Ooh-oh-oh

Change, change your life, take it all (take it all)
We’re gonna stick together, know we’ll get through it all (I know we'll get through it all)
Change, change your life, take it all (yeah, take it all)
You’re gonna use it to become what you’ve always known (become what you’ve always known)
Change, change your life, take it all
(Change your life and take it all)
Change, change your life, take it all
(Change your life and take it all)

You got a right to show the world
Something never seen
We wanna hear you scream it out
You’re not alone

Oh, whoa
Oh, yeah

Change, change your life, take it all (take it all)
We’re gonna stick together, know we’ll get through it all (we're invincible)
Change, change your life, take it all (change your life and take it all)
You’re gonna use it to become what you’ve always known (become what you’ve always known)
