Canít be About Me
© 2014 Bruce E. Matthews, Painted Trillium Music

Headed up north in my old Dodge pick-up,
With a tank full of gas and my dog in the middle
Didnít know what Iíd find,
Donít know what Iím after
But I know it canít be about me.
Road is long but the pine fills the air,
I might be tired, but I donít really care.
I just know Iím free to choose and to do what I like
And I know it canít be about me.

CHORUS
Hey now, is that something in the wind calling out my name?
Hey now, time to make a change.
Hey now, do you think you find Him better when youíre listening for Him?
Hey now, time to make a change.

Iím hopiní thereís some truth, what they say about the journey
Donít matter Ďbout the past, its all about learniní
How to be a good man, how to stand real tall
And to know it canít be about me.
I just know about today, donít know about tomorrow
Got everything I need, donít need to see no farther
Taking one day at a time one foot in front of the other
And knowing it canít be about me.

CHORUS

The night is long all along the watchtower
But Heís right beside me and Heís given me the power
And Iím not afraid and Iím not alone
As long as its not about me.
So Iím heading north in my old Dodge truck
Got some thinking to do, but it wonít be luck
When the sky opens up with the northern lights
And it sure ainít gonna be about me!
