What I Cannot Change
LeAnn Rimes Lyrics


I know what makes me comfortable
And I know what makes me tick
And I when I need to get my way
I know how to pour it on thick

Cream and sugar in my coffee
Right away when I wake
I face a day, and pray to God
I won't make the same mistakes
All the rest is out of my hands
I will learn to let go what I cannot change
I will learn to forgive what I cannot change
I will learn to love what I cannot change
But I will change, yeah I will change
Whatever I, whatever I can

Yeah I don't know my father
Or my mother well enough
It seems like every time we talk
We can't get passed the little stuff
The pain is self-inflicted
I know it's not good for me health
Yeah but it's easier to please the world
Then it is to please myself

All the rest is out of my hands
I will learn to let go what I cannot change
I will learn to forgive what I cannot change
I will learn to love what I cannot change
But I will change, yeah I will change
Whatever I, whatever I can

Well I know I can't care about how everyone else really feels
I have enough hurt of my own to heal

I will learn to let go what I cannot change
I will learn to forgive what I cannot change
I will learn to let go what I cannot change
I will learn to forgive what I cannot change
I will learn to love what I cannot change
But I will change, yeah I will change
Whatever I, whatever I can

I remember the first time I heard this song. The rawness of the lyrics and Leann's voice dropping and soaring had me in tears by the time it ended. 6 years on, it still stops me in my tracks. Deep respect to the songwriter's for this humbling, soul-baring track.

What a beautiful song! I love the music, the lyrics, and LeAnn's amazing voice. I heard it in my head this morning on the way to work... "I will learn to let go what I cannot change"....

beautiful, her voice is a mirror to my life, listing to this song makes me stronger, I will learn to let go of the things I cannot change and I will learn to forgive but when I do get a chance I will change becuase I can.
