DIXIE CHICKS


Not Ready To Make Nice Lyrics

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I'm not sure I could
They say time heals everything
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 paying

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 probably 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 kinda 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 probably 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 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 probably 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 everything
But I'm still waiting

It is the time, it is always the time, to support our country -- right or wrong -- by pointing out when it is right and when it is wrong. That is what patriotism is about.

My husband and father of 3 kids was in a plane on 9-11. Military. I respect Natalie for voicing her opinion. That is what America is all about. Shame on those Americans for the death threats.

The united states has a thing called Free speech...they utilized their right to speak freely.She said it in London on the eve of one of the biggest anti-war protests Britain had ever seen.

Great song.. that being said i still think its wrong to go to another country and bad mouth our president weather u agree with his decisions or not. This is a time to be patriotic not bashing us

I completely support Natalie. Americans oppose to her cuz they're too ignorant to admit their own faults and don't realize the harm they brought upon society worldwide. People died because of Bush.
