FAREWELL TO THE OLD ME
Dar Williams


How can I ask love to hold the mystery

When just look at me

It's all push and pull collateral

I don't want to be the one who gets the next surprise

I'll plan it out this time

Though I used to think that things were meant to be


So farewell to the old me

Farewell to the old me

My life is working better now

It's always changing anyhow


I danced a lot of nights until the grass was wet

It wasn't over yet

'Round 'bout 3 a.m. you made a friend

And I followed a lot of vital crazy thoughts

Because it's where the meaning was

And I tried to find it every other way


So farewell to the old me

Farewell to the old me

My life is getting better now

But always changing anyhow


But I can turn on the charm

Show them nothing more

Than what I've done before

It's nothing much new

But it'll do

'Cause I don't wanna be the one who makes you laugh out loud

I wanna make you proud

And you always said you knew what I could be


So farewell to the old me

Farewell to the old me

Farewell to the old me

My life is working better now

But always changing anyhow

Time

And the old me

Farewell to the old me

Farewell...
