RODNEY CROWELL lyrics - Why Don't We Talk About It

RODNEY CROWELL
"Why Don't We Talk About It"

Once I had a woman with a high hand
And I let her treat me mighty low man
She made a lover of my best friend
And now he treats me like a has been

Yes, I've had my trouble with the world around me
No, I didn't give it my best
Now I get a chance to see some better weather
If you want to stay forever
Why don't we talk about it now

Yes my reputation says I'm flaky
Hey my whole situation's kinda shaky
Some people 'round here think I've lost it
They drew the line I stepped across it

Yes, I've had my troubles in some certain circles
No, I didn't bring it on myself
Now I get a chance to know they'll eat their words
And if you don't care what you've heard
Why don't we talk about it now

Sometimes I make it all up in my head
There's a whole lot of things that should have never been said
This new ground feels solid that I'm standing on

I have done some things that might amaze you
But then again most things don't even phase you
You got a way of standing steadfast
I've got a way of running dead last

Yes, I've had my trouble trying to start over
No, I didn't give it all I could
Now I get a chance to know what love can heal
And if you want to know the feeling
Why don't we talk about it now

If you want to know the feeling
Why don't we talk about it now
