Mary Chapin Carpenter (born February 21, 1958) is an American folk and country music singer, songwriter and musician. Carpenter spent several years singing in Washington, D.C. clubs before signing in the late 1980s with Columbia Records, who marketed her as a country singer. Carpenter's first album, 1987's Hometown Girl, did not produce any singles, although 1989's State of the Heart and 1990's Shooting Straight in the Dark each produced four Top 20 hits on the Billboard country singles charts. more »

[Chorus]
You can have it; I don't want it
And when you've got, it I'll be gone 
It won't matter what you're saying
When the damage has all been done 

Can't seem to keep the faith 
As if that's all I need to do 
I'd rather walk away 
Than take what belongs to you

[Chorus]

Some words will cut you down 
Like you were only in the way 
Why should I stand this ground? 
It won't hurt as much to say

[Chorus]

Sometimes we're blinded by 
The very thing we need to see 
I finally realized 
You need it more than you need me

[Chorus]

The damage has all been done
