1. Iím not in denial; no, Iím perfectly all right.

†††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G-C-G

I can take it or I can leave it, just one more and Iíll call it a night.

††††† G††††††††††† G7†††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††† -†††††††††††† Am

Iím not in denial; thereís no need to gab and moan,

And Iíll be just fine if you all just leave me alone.

I like the way my life is going; I just readjusted my goals.

†††G††††††††† ††††††††G7†††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††C††††††††††† -†††† ††Am

Itís not that Iím afraid of change, I just like it the way it is,

And if it ainít broke, well there ainít nothing to fix.
