“IT’S NOT ABOUT ME”

 

We live a lifetime, of tribulations

To struggle is our recreation

Life is filled with constant fear and doubt

 

We grew up learning, ‘There’s no easy way’

Keep the blinders on and grind it every day

Forget all others and just focus on yourself

…Now that’s a thought, that just couldn’t be more wrong

 

Cause it’s not about you, it’s not about me

And gathering all we can see

It’s not about yours, it’s not about mine

Possessions we must leave behind

To figure out life, and understand all it can be

Just know that it’s not about you…IT’S NOT ABOUT ME

 

Do you ever wonder, just when your life will turn

Surviving’s hard enough there’s still so much to learn

So tell me why that being selfish is so wrong?

…It’s all right here, I’ve put the answer in this song

 

It’s not about you, it’s not about me

And gathering all we can see

It’s not about yours, it’s not about mine

Possessions we must leave behind

To figure out life, and understand all it can be

Just know that it’s not about you…IT’S NOT ABOUT ME

 

It’s all about giving, beyond your hearts content

Without a dime being spent, or just making a call

It means to put someone ahead of yourself

They matter more than anything else, so can’t you see

 

That it’s not about you, it’s not about me

And gathering all we can see

It’s not about yours, it’s not about mine

Possessions we must leave behind

 

It’s not about you, it’s not about me

And gathering all we can see

It’s not about yours, it’s not about mine

Possessions we must leave behind

To figure out life, and understand all it can be

Just know that it’s not about you…IT’S NOT ABOUT ME

Just know that it’s not about you…IT’S NOT ABOUT ME
