"Forgive" as written by and Rebecca Lynn/bruce Howard....
I always said that that'd be it
That I wouldn't stick around
If it ever came to this
Yet here I am, so confused
How am I supposed to leave
When I can't even move
In the time it would've took to say
?Honey I'm home, how was your day'
You dropped a bomb right where we live
And expected me to just forgive?

Well, that's a mighty big word
For such a small man
And I'm not sure I can
?Cause I don't even know now who I am
And it's too soon for me to say forgive

I guess I should ask but I won't
Was it love of just her touch
?Cause I don't think I want to know
So get you some things and get out
Don't call me for a day or two
So I can sort this out
Well you might as well've ripped the life
Right out of me right here tonight
When through the fallin' tears you said
?Can you ever just forgive?'

Well, that's a mighty big word
For such a small man
And I'm not sure I can
?Cause I don't even know now who I am
And it's too soon for me to say forgive

Well you know what they say
Forgive and forget, relive and regret

Well, that's a mighty big word
For such a small man
And I'm not sure I can
?Cause I don't even know now who I am
And it's too soon for me to say forgive

    General Commenti can relate to this song unfortunately. my ex boyfriend cheated on me and we were together for a year and a half. he now wants me back and i'm just saying everything that this song is saying
    "it's too soon for me to say forgive"

    "you know what they say, forgive and forget,
    relive and regret"

    General Commentmy boyfriend slept with one of my good friends .. and at the moment i was so devastated, but this song really did help me.

    my favorite line is:
    I should ask
    But I won't
    Was it love or just a touch
    Cause I don't think I wanna know

    you often want to know WHY they cheated, but then again sometimes you dont want to hear the truth ... truly heartbreaking ..
