FORGiVEN

"FORGiVEN by DEB TALAN"
You worry on, hurting anybody anymore
You worry on, small comfort
One of us seems not to tremble
You make a rift inside me every day
Then you choose to stay
I walk the edge and push it wider

You are forgiven
I open all my doors
You are forgiven
What a heart is for
I am no martyr
You give me reason
I try harder
and I wait
for a warmer season
Meanwhile,
You are forgiven

I hear a soft noise like a sigh,
A singing like a lullaby
It is my heart
It is this wind that blows through
Where you held me closer, where we whisper
This is, this is true

You are forgiven
I open all my doors
You are forgiven
What a heart is for
I am no martyr
You give me reason
I try harder
And I wait
for a warmer season
Meanwhile,
You are
forgiven

And it's time to go
I cannot stay, you cannot know my love
So dear, will it be faith or fear?

You are forgiven
I open all my doors
You are forgiven
What a heart is for
I am no martyr
You give me reason
I try harder
and I wait
for a warmer season
Meanwhile,
You are
forgiven

You are
forgiven


in my opionion, this song captures the pure beauty and majesty of what it really means to truly forgive. the combination of her voice, the soft guitar, and these lyrics makes me tear up every time i hear it. to think that someone who has been hurt that badly can still find forgiveness in her heart is so endearing. the pain and hurting in the lyrics combined with her willingness to forgive, even now, is so touching.
