I got the call today I didnt wanna hear

But I knew that it would come

An old true friend of ours was talkin on the phone

She said you'd found someone

And I thought of all the bad luck

And the struggles we went through

And how I lost me and you lost you

What are these voices outside loves open door

Make us throw off our contentment

And beg for something more

I'm learning to live without you now

But I miss you sometimes

The more I know the less I understand

All the things I thought I knew I'm learning again

I've been tryin to get down

To the heart of the matter

But my will gets weak

And my thoughts seem to scatter

But I think its about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if even if you don't love me anymore

These times are so uncertain

Theres a yearning undefined

And people filled with rage

We all need a little tenderness

How can love survive in such a graceless age

The trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness

Theyre the very things - we kill I guess

Pride and competition

Cannot fill these empty arms

And the work I put between us

You know it doesn't keep me warm

I'm learning to live without you now

But I miss you baby

And the more I know the less I understand

All the things I thought Id figured out

I have to learn again

I've been trying to get down

To the heart of the matter

But everything changes

And my friends seem to scatter

But I think its about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if even if you don't love me anymore

There are people in your life

whove come and gone

They let you down you know they hurt your pride

You better put it all behind you baby life goes on

You keep carryin that anger

itll eat you up inside baby

I've been trying to get down

To the heart of the matter

But my will gets weak

And my thought seem to scatter

But I think its about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if even if you don't love me

I've been tryin to get down

To the heart of the matter

Because the flesh will get weak

And the ashes will scatter

So I'm thinkin about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if even if you don't love me

Forgiveness

Forgiveness - baby

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if you don't love me anymore
