"Don't Take It Personally"

Words & Music by James Nihan

We don't have a choice in what others say
If somebody's spreading poison, just walk away
Cut off in conversation, cut off on the road
Is it time for aggravation? No, no!

- Chorus -
Don't take it personally, Don't take it to heart
In the pages of your story it plays a real small part
What other people say and do
It's got nothing to do with who
You happen to be
Don't take it personally

Sometimes we're not seeing something eye to eye
There's just no agreeing no matter how we try
That doesn't mean rejecting how you say you feel
I'll go on respecting you for being real

(Repeat Chorus)

- Bridge -
You're not from Venus
I'm not from Mars
There's no difference between us
We're all children of the stars

(Repeat Chorus)

You're not under attack
Don't take it personally
Let it roll off your back
Don't take it personally
Keep that light in your soul
Don't take it personally
Don't let the world have control
Don't take it personally
