"Forgiven" as written by and Bob/carstensen Marlette....
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
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

    General Commenti guess it's similar to having a problem occur in a friendship/relationship, and the person angry/upset finally forgives the other and everything gets better.

    "you make a rift inside me everyday"

    My InterpretationI think its about a person who knows they will die soon and is forgiving someone they love.

    "I am no martyr..."

    "wait for a warmer season..."

    "and it's time to go, I cannot stay, you cannot know, my love, so dear, will it be faith or fear"

    They have accepted death and are letting go.
