I forgive, i forgive

I forgive all my friends who left me alone, i forgive the wall that it had so many stones
I forgive the lord that he never sent a priest, i forgive the hangman, i forgive the beast
I forgive the winter that it was so cold, i forgive my father that he was so bold
I forgive the ashes that they couldn't stay flames, i forgive the acid, i forgive the rains
I forgive james joyce that i couldn't read his books, i forgive that you've never given back what you took
I forgive the puzzle that i didn't fit, i forgive the sh_t that i couldn't write a hit
I forgive the dog that she never came home, i forgive all the ways that they always lead to rome
I forgive the worm in the very last tree, i forgive the girls who haven't forgiven me
I forgive inspiration when it came to late, i forgive all the ladies when i had to wait
I forgive superman that i didn't stay clean, i forgive, i forgive, anyone, anything
For the sake of love, for the sake of love
For the sake of love

I forgive the angels who could never take me high, i forgive all my dreams that i couldn't really fly
I forgive the thought that i couldn't stop thinking, i forgive all the drinks that i couldn't stop drinking
I forgive the clock that it didn't wake me up, i forgive the driver, i forgive the cab
I forgive all the moments that they wouldn't stay, i forgive all the years that they've flown away
I forgive the promises that they've been broken, i forgive the curses that they have been spoken
I forgive all the prophets and the saints of the past, i forgive the stars when they fell too fast
I forgive the joke that it didn't make me laugh, i forgive desire that i had to starve
I forgive all the love for the sake of love, i forgive all sakes for the fake above
For the sake of love, for the sake of love
For the sake of love
