"Forgiven Not Forgotten" as written by James Corr, Sharon Corr, Caroline Corr and Andrea Jane Corr....
All alone, staring on
Watching her life go by
When her days are grey
And her nights are black
Different shades of mundane
And the one eyed furry toy
That lies upon the bed
Has often heard her cry
And heard her whisper out a name
Long forgiven, but not forgotten

You're forgiven not forgotten
You're forgiven not forgotten
You're forgiven not forgotten
You're not forgotten

A bleeding heart torn apart
Left on an icy grave
In the room where they once lay
Face to face
Nothing could get in their way
But now the memories of the man are haunting her days
And the craving never fades
She's still dreaming of a man
Long forgiven, but not forgotten

You're forgiven not forgotten
You're forgiven not forgotten
You're forgiven not forgotten
You're not forgotten

Still alone, staring on
Wishing her life goodbye
As she goes searching for the man
Long forgiven, but not forgotten

You're forgiven not forgotten
You're forgiven not forgotten
You're forgiven not forgotten
You're forgiven not forgotten
You're forgiven not forgotten
You're forgiven not forgotten
You're forgiven not forgotten
You're forgiven not forgotten
You're not forgotten
You're not forgotten
No, you're not forgotten

    General CommentThis song chills me, I can't believe no one has commented on it. The lyrics, I think, are fabulous.

    General CommentI believe this song is about a sad woman who has lost the love of her life and is wasting away, shes forgiven the man for dying and leaving her alone in the world but she will never forget him

    General CommentI agree that this is a very beautiful song, her voice is awesome and these lyrics are so sad. I think that you could be right, Gracefire, from the lines "an empty heart, torn apart, left on an icy grave," that her love died, but it could even just be that their love is dead, that he left her. Maybe she's forgiven him for going, but still "the craving never fades."

    General CommentFukin tough song. Love it. It has an anger to it, but also a sense of extreme sadness, which is pretty much the message anyway.
