NOTHIN' I CAN DO ABOUT IT NOW
(Beth Nielsen Chapman)
I've got a long list of real good reasons,
For all the things I've done.
I've got a picture in the back of my mind,
Of what I've lost and what I've won.
I've survived every situation,
Knowing when to freeze and when to run.
And regret is just a memory, written on my brow.
And there's nothing I can do about it now!
I've got a wild and a restless spirit.
I've held my price through every deal.
I've seen the fire of a woman scorned,
turn her heart of gold to steel.
I've got the song of the voice inside me,
set to the rhythm of the wheel.
An' I been dreamin' like a child,
since the cradle broke the bough
And there's nothin' I can do about it now!
Runnin' through the changes,
Goin' through the stages,
Comin' round the corners in my life.
Leavin' doubt to fate.
Stayin' out too late.
Waitin' for the moon to say goodniiiigh-hi-hi-hite.
And I could cry for the time I've wasted,
But that's a waste of time and tears.
And I know just what I'd change,
If I went back in time somehow.
But there's nothing I can do about it
I'm forgiving everything that forgiveness will allow.
And there's nothin' I can do about it now!!
