From the recording So Human
Forgive and Forget
Music by Brian Dekam, Lyrics by Tim Glenn
Wounded in a battle of words
The scars go much deeper than skin
Oh how you know how to hurt me
And switch the right triggers within
And now you say that your’e sorry
I guess I’m supposed to believe
But now that you’ve said it
Should I just forget it?
Then tell me why do I still bleed?
Your sorry won’t make all the pain go away
Your sorry won’t make me feel better
And I struggle with all of the things that you said
When I should forgive and forget it.
I guess I just let you too close
How else could you cause so much pain?
I could close myself off I suppose
And you could accept all the blame
I heard you say that you’re sorry
Now what do I do but believe?
I was there when you said it
But do you regret it?
Then tell me why do I still grieve?
But if God could forgive us for everything we’ve done
Maybe just maybe I can move on
But it’s one thing to know it and another to do
Why’s it so hard to forgive you?
What’s wrong with me? I can’t forget it.
