In this song that conveys cheerful resignation, Willie Nelson captures a sentiment that those of us who are older and looking back will recognize, that it is too late to change some things and there is no point wasting time in futile regrets.
I found these words to especially resonate with me.
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 I 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.
