1. Bye, Bye, Bye

From the recording Songs That I Have Written


Step one, write a song to get you outta my head
Step two, plan a party, remind myself I’m not dead
Step three, look around at all those faces that I love
And say, ‘Man, look what you got
Don’t tell me that you ever forgot
‘Cause you’re alive
You’ve got friends
We’ve got a history that proves to me
They are here till the end
So sing a song
Play the piano
Don’t waste your energy on a memory
Shake it off and let go
So bye bye bye
Bye bye bye
Hello you and you and you and you
Yeah, let’s do this again
So bye bye bye
Bye bye bye
I’m gettin’ by with a little help from my friends
So bye bye bye’
Step four, get the food out and open up the champagne
Step five, toast to what’s next and get a little insane
Step six, take a moment and make sure to breathe it all in
And say, ‘Man, look what you got
The future starts right here in this spot
Getting by with some help from my friends
Don’t tell me that you’ll ever forget
