Bob Carlisle Forgiveness

I say I will, but then I won’t

Say I do, but then I don’t

It happens every day

I hate the sinner, love the sin

It’s a sorry state I’m in

I’ve got to get away

Every time I throw that stone

The fate I’m sealing is my own

You know how much I need

Forgiveness, forgiveness

I can’t live without

Forgiveness, forgiveness

That’s what love’s about

Forgiveness

I say forgive and then forget

But I ain’t learned to do it yet

You’d think I’d know by now

I know how to hurt someone

Been on both sides of that gun

Pulled the trigger anyhow

When I’m hurting someone else

I only hurt myself

I’ve got to let it go

Forgiveness, forgiveness

I can’t live without

Forgiveness, forgiveness

That’s what love’s about

Forgiveness

A thousand wrongs don’t make a right

Just nobody wins

When the bridges start burning

Can’t you hear my cry?

Forgiveness, forgiveness

I can’t live without

Forgiveness, forgiveness

That’s what love’s about

Forgiveness, forgiveness

I can’t live without

Forgiveness, forgiveness

That’s what love’s about

Forgiveness, forgiveness

Forgiveness, forgiveness
