So Long Self

Another example of what it is to die-to-self

Well if I come across a little bit distant it's just because I am.
Things just seem to feel a little bit different,
You understand.
Believe it or not but life is not apparently about me anyways,
But I have met the One who really is worthy.
So let me say,

So long, self.
Well, it's been fun, but I have found somebody else.
So long, self.
There's just no room for two so you are gonna have to move.
So long, self.
Don't take this wrong but you are wrong for me, farewell.
Oh well, goodbye, don't cry.
So long, self.

Stop right there because I know what you're thinking,
But no we can't be friends.
And even though I know your heart is breaking,
This has to end.
And come to think of it the blame for all of this
Simply falls on me
For wanting something more in life than all of this.
Can't you see?

Don't feel so bad (don't feel so bad).
There'll be better days (there'll be better days).
Don't go away mad (but by all means)
Just go away, go away.
