Hayes Carll – What It Is lyrics
[Verse 1]
My heart was way too empty and the damage done too deep
To stay here for the breaking of the day
My compass is in pieces and I don't know what I see
I'm not sure it matters anyway

[Chorus]
'Cause what it was is gone forever
What it could be, God only knows
And what it is is right here in front of me
And I'm not letting go

[Verse 2]
Just across the border from what I used to be
I still hear the slamming of the door
And the future holds a promise it doesn't have to keep
But it might not need keeping anymore

[Chorus]
'Cause what it was is gone forever
What it could be, God only knows
And what it is is right here in front of me
And I'm not letting go

[Verse 3]
I can hear the laughter as I make another plan
Set out like a fool towards the sea
Every wave that crashes rearranges all the sand
And puts another path in front of me

[Chorus]
'Cause what it was is gone forever
What it could be, God only knows
And what it is is right here in front of me
And I'm not letting go
What it is is right here in front of me
And I'm not letting go
