WHAT I KNOW RIGHT NOW
[ country; co-written by Daniel Muhammad ]


             Born into a sheltered past, defined black and white
             In my mindís eye reasons why were plainly wrong aní right
             A simple time back when hopeís great rainbow had no end
             If I could only take back now what I didnít know back then

                   If I only knew back then what I know right now
                   Might take life easier and be kinder somehow
                   Treat folks decently as I wish they would treat me
                   If I only knew back then what I know right now

             If I could forget now what I didnít know back then
             Might sleep well tonight, hope for a new day to begin
             Find a way thatís better, care less Ďbout what donít matter
             If I could forget now what I didnít know back then

                   If I only knew back then what I know right now
                   Might take life easier and be kinder somehow
                   Listen patiently aní be a little less hard on me
                   If I only knew back then what I know right now

             Instead of takiní care of today, we make big plans for tomorrow
             And end up learniní the hard way the lessons of lifeís sorrow

                   If I only knew back then what I know right now
                   Might take life easier and be kinder somehow
                   Be a better friend, feel good about life once again
                   If I only knew back then what I know right now
                   What I know right now, what I know right now
