Not Ready to Make Nice

They’re back.

I was having a bit of a day on Monday. Frustrating. Challenging. Irritating. Obnoxious. A day I would not like to relive. Then…

sitting at home and cruising through myspace, I came across my friend Jessie’s site where she was broadcasting the new Dixie Chicks song, “Not Ready To Make Nice”.

As always, when you ask from the universe, it delivers.

I was of course happy just to have Natalie’s voice soaring through my home. But after I caught the lyrics, my chest filled with fire. It was just the kind of emotion and passion I needed to be reminded of. I love how music can always translate that power and remind me to feel.

I am so proud of those Chicks of mine. They could have gone off and made a safe radio friendly album and come back with their tails between their legs, begging for forgiveness. Instead, they came back with a nice, on pitch and packed with a punch, “Fuck You!”

**editor’s note- I wouldn’t pick a fight with me anytime soon!

Not Ready To Make Nice

(written by Emily Robison, Martie Maguire, Natalie Maines, Dan Wilson)

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

Saying that I better shut up and sing

or my life would 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
