"You Can't Take It Back" as written by Brett Warren, Brad Warren and Crystal Shawanda....
There she was just seventeen
Cryin' on the mornin' after
He told her everything she wanted to hear

All those drunken reasons that she had
For givin' in don't matter
And they don't stop the tears noooo

What do you do when it's too late
What do you say when you can't change the truth
Of what you've done
And it's coming at you fast
When you can't hide the hurt inside
How do you pray to make it right
When you wanna change the past
And you can't take it back
You can't take it back

Scared to death she tells her friend
To meet her at the drugstore counter
And finds out what she didn't wanna hear
Daddy will die
Her mamma will cry
The kids at school will talk about her
There ain't no easy way outta here oh

What do you do when it's too late
What do you say when you can't change the truth
Of what you've done
And it's coming at you fast
When you can't hide the hurt inside
How do you pray to make it right
When you wanna change the past
And you can't take it back
You can't take it back

All the choices
That she's made
That baby staring back at her
Is one she wouldn't change

What do you do when it's too late
What do you say when you can't change the truth
Of what you've done
And it's coming at you fast
When you can't hide the hurt inside
How do you pray to make it right
When you wanna change the past
And you can't take it back
You can't take it back

What do you do when it's too late
What do you say when you can't change the truth
Of what you've done
And it's coming at you fast
When you can't hide the hurt inside
How do you pray to make it right
When you wanna change the past
And you can't take it back
You can't take it back

Sometimes it ain't so bad
