I Forgive You

from Friends and Foes by Tim Be Told

Can you tell me why? Is this you saying goodbye?
Did I, suddenly get boring?
What is this about? Did my novelty wear out?
And how... is there nothing worth restoring?
You threw my heart into a stack
Gave me your love then took it back
For all of the dirt that you dragged me through
I forgive you

This is your dance and song
You point out all the ways I’m wrong
Now I see our shiny love is rusting
You point and blame
While you crucify my name
And you spread rumors like it’s nothing
Those words you spoke behind my back
They ripped my soul but you knew that
For all of the lies, you still pretend are true
I forgive you

You aim and strike, you do whatever you like
And I’m left picking up the pieces
We once embraced now you curse me to my face
And I’m patching up the dam before it breaches
I wanted peace but you attacked
I gave my love you hit me back
For all of those times that I broke in two
I forgive you

I’ll let this go and even though
You won’t apologize
Freedom will come when my anger is done
And soon I will realize
One day we’ll reach the other side
I’ll look at you and I’ll be fine
Until that day when we’ve made it through
I forgive you
