Mary Chapin Carpenter – Maybe World lyrics
(Mary Chapin Carpenter/Gary Burr)

It's all I hate but oh so tempting
Fills me up but leaves me empty
It's all regrets and second chances
What's the point of backward glances
That lead me nowhere
I can't go back there

Everything is so uncertain
All happening to you in a whirl
That's the beauty and the hurting
Of living in a maybe world

Who can stand all those should haves
They wake us up and make us feel bad
The famous road will stay untaken
All mistakes are worth making
Go back to sleep now
It all works out somehow

Everything is so uncertain
All happening to you in a whirl
That's the beauty and the hurting
Of living in a maybe world

I'm sorry for the rain that broke the dam that caused the flood
I'm sorry for the pain but that's the way it is because

Everything is so uncertain
All happening to you in a whirl
That's the beauty and the hurting
Of living in a maybe world

Everything is so uncertain
All the garbage baby and the pearls
That's the beauty and the hurting
Of living in a maybe world
