Brian Kennedy - Forgiveness lyrics
Pride rides before a fall
And oh, how you have fallen
Two words could have saved it all
But your lips could not form them
Did you never say the words 'I'm sorry'
Or know the sweet and gentle glory of Forgiveness. Forgiveness
We shared a rare and precious love
But now the spell is broken
Deep down you know, you surely must
It's all because of words unspoken
No you've never said the words 'I'm sorry'
Or know the sweet and gentle glory of Forgiveness. Forgiveness.
I didn't want to win a war
I just longed to be your friend
If you'd just said what I was waiting for
We could have started all over again
Because regrets, oh they're nothing new
But still, they're hard to swallow
So don't pretend you don't know the truth
A life like that is sad and hollow
So if you ever say the words 'I'm sorry'
And know the sweet and gentle glory of Forgiveness
Then I'm sorry too
