It's Not About Me

Dear American Dream,

I wrote this song in response to you and your teachings.

It’s Not About Me

It’s not about me
this life is not about me
And it’s not about you
this life is not about you

I am sure you have heard
all the voices in the world
They keep telling you that you are something
But what we fail to see
is a view from eternity
when you look from there you’ll see
is that it’s not about me

It’s not about things
this life is not about things
It’s not about being happy
this life is not about that

All the things we could buy
will leave us high and dry
We are never satisfied with getting
Cause what we fail to see
is a view from for eternity
when you look from there you’ll see
is that it’s not about things

What is life about?
I’m trying to figure out
What does this life mean?
But I have come to learn
The earth will one day burn
and God will expect me to know
and to tell the world….

That’ it’s all about Him
This life is all about Him
And it’s all for Him
This life is all for Him

All the songs that we sing
will one day mean nothing
When we’re standing in the presence of the King
When you finally see
a view from eternity…
You will see…
That life is not about me
