"She's Already Made Up Her Mind" as written by and Lyle Pearce Lovett....
She said something about going home
She said something about needing to spend some time alone
And she wondered out loud what it was she had to find
But she's already made up her mind

All my friends told me she was too young
Well I knew that myself and I tried to run
But the faster I ran the more I fell behind
Because she'd already made up her mind

She's already made up her mind

Now there is nothing so deep as the ocean
And there is nothing so high as the sky
And there is nothing so unwavering as a woman
When she's already made up her mind

So now she's sitting at one end of the kitchen table
And she is staring without an expression
And she is talking to me without moving her eyes
Because she's already made up her mind

She's already made up her mind
She's already made up her mind

And she said something about going home
And she said something about needing to spend some time alone
And she wondered out loud what it was she had to find
But she'd already made up her mind

So my friend carry me down to the water's edge
And then sail with me out to that ocean deep
And let me go easy down over the side
And remember me to her

She's already made up her mind
She's already made up her mind
She's already made up her mind

    General CommentMan this shoots through you like an ice cold bolt of lightning. Talk about the ultimate break up song. For a long time I thought this was about Lyle and Julia but came out before they were hitched so it’s just his poetic imagination but man did he nail the feelings and emotions. This song really shows his roots in traditional "Carter Family" original country music complete with a dramatic drowning at sea. To me it’s a non-linear story. Most of the song is a memory of him proceeding where he knew it was unwise and then bam he looks up and she is across from him at the kitchen table. She doesn’t have to say a word but he knows it’s over…she’s already made up her mind, before she even tells him. He has gone through this ending and is ready for it and he sees through the flimsy excuses and knows in his heart of hearts that if it’s yes it’s yes if it’s no it’s no and if it’s maybe…if it’s maybe then it is over. But just as knowing that a loved one is going to die from a terminal illness; when it actually happens it still hurts. His knowing that he is about to be dumped doesn’t help…in the end if he can’t be with her…to whom he has a line connect from his heart to hers…he would rather drowned in the unfathomable sea… Who can’t relate to the longing to have a friend “…remember me to her…” Yeah that’ll show ya. What a song…it only takes a slightly second to North Dakota from Joshua Judges Ruth.
