Not In This Life
Natalie Merchant

Lately I've been walking all alone
through the wind and through the rain
Been walking through the streets
and finding sweet relief in knowing
that it won't be long.
Lately it's occurred to me that I've had enough of that
and lately I've been satisfied by simple things
like breathing in and breathing out

Never again, not in this life
will I be taken twice
Never again, never on your life
Will I make that same mistake
I can't make it twice

Lately it's occurred to me
exactly what went wrong
I realized I compromised
I sacrificed far too much for far too long

Never again, not in this life
Will I be taken twice
Never again, not on your life
Will I make that same mistake
I can't make it twice
Starting out from here today
Swear I'm gonna change my ways
Once mistaken in this life
but never twice
