Not Ready To Make Nice
Dixie Chicks 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
Why can't you just get over it,
It turned my whole world around
buti kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby,
With no regrets and I don't mind saying,
It's a sad sad story
That 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
Saying 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

Forgive, sounds good.
Forget, I'm not sure I could.
They say time heals everything,
But I'm still waiting

@Ariel Ritchie Again: if people don't want to hear their music, station managers were under no obligation to play it.

That IS NOT what "being cancelled" means.

You want to know what being cancelled means?

Ultra-Giant-Big-Tech colluding with the government to silence people, ordinary people, who aren't "music stars" and would NEVER have the platform that the Dixie Chicks did.

Your perspective...she is skewed.

@poinked Oh, wow, when did you become the spokesman for the entire world...?

Neat!

Glad to meet you, Your Highness!

But really, child...who do you think you are, speaking for everyone else? "no one gives a shit about (sic)"...?

How do you know? Did you take a survey?

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 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 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

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

The verse where she goes in "I made my bed and I sleep like a baby with no regrets and I don't mind saying 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 did the words that I said send somebody so over the edge that they'd write me a letter saying that I better shut up and sing or my life will be oovvveerrr" I can listen to that part 100 times and I get chills and choked up every time.

Do you hate people because of their political views...?

I STAN Kim Jong-Un but Can't STAND Trump

The "hate a perfect stranger" part make me think of racism or how our society is indoctrinating us to hate others by painting them as the enemies when in fact we may have incited them to anger.

@Alexia Joseph I find it very humorous that you have a half naked picture of a woman as your profile picture and are attacking guys for being too sexual

Audrey J McCalla

That part. The realest lines ever.
