Lyrics: Dixie Chicks.
Tune: Dixie Chicks.


Forgive, sounds good. Forget, I’m not sure I could.
They say time heals ev’rything, but I’m still waiting.
I’m through with doubt.
There’s nothing left for me to figure out.
I’ve paid a price and I’ll keep payin’.

I’m not ready to make nice,
I’m not ready to back down.
I’m still mad as hell and I don’t have time
To go round and round and round.
It’s too late to make it right.
I prob’ly wouldn’t if I could,
’Cause I’m mad as hell, can’t bring myself to do
What it is you think I should.

I know you said, “Can’t you just get over it?”
It turned my whole world around and I kind of like it.
I made my bed and I sleep like a baby,
With no regrets, and I don’t mind sayin’
It’s a sad, sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger.
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter, sayin’ that I better
Shut up and sing or my life will be over?

I’m not ready to make nice,
I’m not ready to back down.
I’m still mad as hell and I don’t have time
To go round and round and round.
It’s too late to make it right.
I prob’ly wouldn’t if I could,
’Cause I’m mad as hell, can’t bring myself to do
What it is you think I should.

I’m not ready to back down.
I’m still mad as hell and I don’t have time
To go round and round and round.
It’s too late to make it right.
I prob’ly wouldn’t if I could,
’Cause I’m mad as hell, can’t bring myself to do
What it is you think I should,
What it is you think I should.

Forgive, sounds good. Forget, I’m not sure I could.
They say time heals ev’rything, but I’m still waiting.
