“Nothing I Can Do About It Now”

Today I feel that the song “Nothing I Can Do About It Now” written by Beth Nielsen Chapman and recorded by Willie Nelson best describes my life and how I’m feeling about it now.  If you haven’t already figured out, I’m a huge fan of Willie Nelson and his music.  Like many country songs the songs tell stories and I can relate to Willie’s love of being on the road and his passion for loving and having a good time.  I too have a “wild and restless spirit.”

“Nothing I Can Do About It Now”

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 bow
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

  1. LOL Recovered? Shit, I went full speed ahead into debauchery and didn’t even blink. The way life works out is crazy sometimes. The range of emotions a person can experience in a 24 hour period always amazes me.
