I Am Changing from Dreamgirls is featured in New Directions, the thirteenth episode of Season Five. It is sung by Kurt and Mercedes.

Kurt, Mercedes, and the rest of the past and present Glee Club members want to make Santana and Rachel become friends again. They tell them about how they had a little clash during lunch that day, but how they realized that fighting wasn't worth it, and that valuing their friendship was much more important. They try to make that clear to Rachel and Santana, and sing this song.


Look at me
Look at me
I am changing
Trying every way I can
I am changing
I'll be better than I am
I'm trying to find a way to understand
But I need you, I need you
I need a hand

I am changing
Seeing everything so clear

Kurt and Mercedes:
I am changing
I'm gonna start right now, right here

Mercedes (Kurt):
I'm hoping (Ooh) to work it out (Yeaah)
And I know that I can

Kurt and Mercedes:
But I need you
I need a hand

Mercedes (Kurt):
All of my life I've been a fool (Yeah)
Who said I could do it all alone (Ooh, oh yeah!)
How many good friends have I already lost (Ooh, oh, oh)
How many dark nights have I known

Kurt and Mercedes:
Walking down that wrong road
There was nothing I could find
All those years of darkness
Can make a person blind

But now I can see

Kurt and Mercedes (Mercedes):
(I am) changing
Trying every way I can
(I am) changing

I will be better than I am (Mercedes: Better than I am)

Kurt and Mercedes:
But I need a friend
To help me start all over again, oh

Mercedes (Kurt):
That would be just fine (Hey!)
I know it's gonna work out (with Kurt: this time) (Hey!)

Kurt and Mercedes (Mercedes):
Because this time I am
(This time) I am
I am changing
I'll get my life together now
(Oooh! I am) changing
(Yes, I know how)
I'm gonna start again
(I'm gonna leave my past behind)
I'll change my life
(I'll make a vow and)
Nothing's gonna stop



  • The position in which Mercedes and Kurt are holding their hands changes back and forth several times.
