Farewell to the Old Me Submit Correct Lyrics

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

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 am 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

Farewell to the old me
Farewell to the old me
My life is working better now
But always changing anyhow

But I can turn on the charm
And 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
