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.

Never again, not in this life, will I be taken twice.
Never again, never on your life, will I make that same same mistake.
I can't make it twice.
Starting out from here today...
