The Last Word
Carpenter Mary Chapin Lyrics


[Chorus]
You can have it; I don't want it
And when you've got, it I'll be gone
It won't matter what you're saying
When the damage has all been done

Can't seem to keep the faith
As if that's all I need to do
I'd rather walk away
Than take what belongs to you

[Chorus]

Some words will cut you down
Like you were only in the way
Why should I stand this ground?
It won't hurt as much to say

[Chorus]

Sometimes we're blinded by
The very thing we need to see
I finally realized
You need it more than you need me

[Chorus]

The damage has all been done

You can have it, I don't want it, and when you've got it, I'll be gone
It won't matter what you're saying when the damage has all been done

Can't seem to keep the faith, as if that's all I need to do
I'd rather walk away than take what belongs to you

You can have it, I don't want it, and when you've got it, I'll be gone
It won't matter what you're saying when the damage has all been done

Some words will cut you down like you were only in the way
Why should I stand this ground, it won't hurt as much to say

You can have it, I don't want it, and when you've got it, I'll be gone
It won't matter what you're saying when the damage has all been done

Sometimes we're blinded by the very thing we need to see
I finally realized that you need it more than you need me

You can have it, I don't want it, and when you've got it, I'll be gone
It won't matter what you're saying when the damage has all been done
The damage has all been done

Your performance of this from Wolftrap gives me goosebumps every time. The power of your vocals and facial expressions coupled with the music strikes me with how powerful this ballad of independence is. And, the band is just spot on with their own music and vocals. While this is quite nice, what it morphed into by that performance made it art. You are an amazing singer/songwriter. Thank you for sharing your gifts!
