Mar. 14th, 2006 @ 08:28 pm I have played this 15 times today
Current Music: Guess. Just guess.
"Not Ready to Make Nice", the new single by the Dixie Chicks.

Play it, play it! Now, now, now! It is SO good and SO direct!

I have it in my MySpace profile, or you can go to their MySpace site.

I hope they sell a bajillion copies of their new CD. (It comes out in May.)

Lyrics under the LJ-cut.



NOT READY TO MAKE NICE

Words & Music 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

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

*hugs dear, dear, wonderful Natalie*

Believe you me, I will buy three copies of this disc myself, and mail one of them back to Natalie with the receipt showing the purchases and a kissmark on the letter.

That's my girl.

Oh, I'm buying copies as gifts for all my Republican relatives! (Not really, but I wish...)

I love the Dixie Chicks. I like their attitude and their fun in concert too. What is your myspace profile name, if you don't mind another friend there, that is and pictures too.

I was very taken with their cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Landslide', and this new track sounds catchy too. I note one of the co-writers is Dan Wilson, presuming of Semisonic, a band I liked a great deal.

Thanks for the hat-tip.
