Nothing I Can Do About It Now Lyrics

by Willie Nelson

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 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
And I've been dreaming like a child
Since the cradle broke the bough
And there's nothing I can do about it now

Running through the changes, going through the stages
Coming round the corners in my life
Leaving doubt to fate, staying out too late
Waiting for the moon to say goodnight

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 went back in time somehow
But there's nothing I can do about it now

Running through the changes, going through the stages
Coming round the corners in my life
Leaving doubt to fate, staying out too late
Waiting for the moon to say goodnight

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 went back in time somehow
But there's nothing I can do about it now
I'm forgiving everything that forgiveness will allow
And there's nothing I can do about it now
