Lyrics:

Change your heart
Look around you
Change your heart
It will astound you
I need your lovin’
Like the sunshine

Everybody’s gotta learn sometime
Everybody’s gotta learn sometime
Everybody’s gotta learn sometime

Change your heart
Look around you
Change your heart
Will astound you
I need your lovin’
Like the sunshine

Everybody’s gotta learn sometime
Everybody’s gotta learn sometime
Everybody’s gotta learn sometime

I need your lovin’
Like the sunshine

Everybody’s gotta learn sometime
Everybody’s gotta learn sometime

Everybody’s gotta learn sometime
Everybody’s gotta learn sometime
Everybody’s gotta learn sometime

Everybody’s gotta learn sometime
Everybody’s gotta learn sometime
Everybody’s gotta learn sometime

……

In my opinion the most notably cover are by Beck and Zucchero.

Beck covered the song for the Michel Gondry film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. This cover was also used at the end of episode 12 of the TV series Dollhouse and in episode 4 of Luther.
