Take It As It Comes - Beth Nielsen Chapman

Rita's out on the street tonight
Driving through the rain
She's got lots of new reasons not to trust any man again
And even though she'll be alright
She'll never be the same again
She'll move closer to her mama, let her daughter keep her daddy's name
Sometimes you've only got one road and it's a rocky ride
Sometimes there isn't time to think about the tears you've cried
You take it as it comes
When you've got no way to hide from the hurting inside
When there's nowhere you can really run
You take it as it comes
Rita's out on the street tonight
Midnight feels so strange
She's got her baby in the car seat
Her sleeping face flashing as the signals change
They roll up to the corner for the seventh time
As they circle around the square
The movie crowd is spilling out across the street
Rita sits at that light and stares
And she wonders if there's any reason in the world to try
And she glances at her little girl and she remembers why
And one foot goes in front of the other
And one day rolls into the next
Sometimes you've got to let your heart be numb
And take it as it comes

텍사스의 싱어송라이터 BethNielsenChapman 의 동명앨범에 실려 있는 곡. 팝음악을 별로 듣지 않는 gracky가 그 앨범을 사게 된 동기는 순전히 일본의 유명한 오디오 평론가 후 노부유키씨가 '미친 듯이 듣고 있다' 라고 스테레오사운드에 쓴 덕분인데 과연 녹음은 훌륭했고 음악도 들을 만 했지만 이 가사를 보고서는 경악을 금할 수가 없었다. 남부 공화당이란 이런 것이란 말인가, 정말로 (무려 미국에) 이런것이 실재하는구나 정도의 감상이었다고 생각한다. 낙태권리페이지를 우연히 보고 이 노래가 생각나서 올림.
