  • I know what makes me comfortable
    And I know what makes me tick
    And I when I need to get my way
    I know how to pour it on thick

    Cream and sugar in my coffee
    Right away when I wake
    I face a day, and pray to God
    I won't make the same mistakes

    All the rest is out of my hands
    I will learn to let go what I cannot change
    I will learn to forgive what I cannot change
    I will learn to love what I cannot change
    But I will change, yeah I will change
    Whatever I, whatever I can

    Yeah I don't know my father
    Or my mother well enough
    It seems like every time we talk
    We can't get passed the little stuff
    The pain is self-inflicted
    I know it's not good for me health
    Yeah but it's easier to please the world
    Then it is to please myself

    All the rest is out of my hands
    I will learn to let go what I cannot change
    I will learn to forgive what I cannot change
    I will learn to love what I cannot change
    But I will change, yeah I will change
    Whatever I, whatever I can

    Well I know I can't care about how everyone else really feels
    I have enough hurt of my own to heal

    I will learn to let go what I cannot change
    I will learn to forgive what I cannot change
    I will learn to let go what I cannot change
    I will learn to forgive what I cannot change
    I will learn to love what I cannot change
    But I will change, yeah I will change
    Whatever I, whatever I can Writer/s: DARRELL BROWN, LEANN RIMES
