I Am Not the Center of the World

96. I Am Not the Center of the World

I wrote this song in the 1970’s in a time when I thought I was the hub and the children and the home and the husband all depended upon me and I had to come through one hundred percent of the time. The words to the song declare that that is not true and slowly I began to see that.

I still can get caught up in trying to do it all and I read the words again and recognize their truth.

—–

I am not the center of the world, I am not the center of the world,

Everything does not depend upon me.

Everything does not revolve around me,

Every now and then things take place

That don’t involve me at all because—

I am not the center of the world.

It’s a little bit relaxing to know

That I’m not running the whole show,

I don’t have to do it all myself.

Everything that happens may not be my fault,

People may be thinking and reacting not to me,

They may be dealing with themselves, or reacting to the past,

Or fearing the future too.

I am not the center of the world, I am not the center of the world,

Everything does not depend upon me.

Everything does not revolve around me,

Every now and then things take place

That don’t involve me at all because—

I am not the center of the world.
