Haven't Got Time For the Pain

by

Carly Simon



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This was the follow-up to "Mockingbird," which was Taylor's duet with her husband at the time, James Taylor. Here, a once sad, unfulfilled woman has discovered happiness and has turned her back on a past that once seemed hopeless. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA)

I use this song like a mantra when I am feeling blue for too long.

That song says something about true happiness. When you are focused on others you have no time to feel sorry for yourself.

One of Carly Simon's best. It's easy to sing along to this tune, all the words are so easy to remember, even after all these years.
