"forgiveness" as written by Leona Lewis, Kara Dioguardi and Salaam Remi....
Um, um

I don't wanna spend another day,
Pointing fingers while I'm placing blame,
I'm no angel, imperfect myself, 'cause baby I am only human,
And I don't wanna put it all on you,
I admit I did some painful things its true,
And I'm sorry for them, no making amends,
For always thinking I was innocent

Starting today, I'm gonna change,
Don't wanna make the same mistakes,
'cause I can see a new horizon,
The ice around my heart is melting,
And the hurt I feel is slowly dying,
Now I'm, no longer crying,
The bridge we burnt is being built again,
Its leading to a new beginning,
And it may never be the way it was,
And that's because I'm talking about forgiveness,
Forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness,

I wish we could take back the things we said,
'cause what we said not always what we ment,
We lost our heads, in the moment,
And the words we used them like a weapon,
But no one wins if we both walk away,
And we hid behind the people we became,
We're warmer than that, we're better than that,
And I still cherish all the things we had,

Starting today, I'm gonna change,
Don't wanna make the same mistakes,
'cause I can see a new horizon,
The ice around my heart is melting,
And the hurt I feel is slowly dying,
Now I'm, no longer crying,
The bridge we burnt is being built again,
Its leading to a new beginning,
And it may never be the way it was,
And that's because I'm talking about forgiveness,
Forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness

If everybody could forgive and forget (just forget),
Think of all the time that we could spend, being friends,
Think about all the lives we could change,
And all the love we could make,
Baby how the world would be a better place,
In the end, oh

Starting today, all that we will change,
And ill make the same mistakes, you know that,
I can see a new horizon,
The ice around my heart is melting,
And the hurt I feel is slowly dying,
And I'm no longer,
The bridge we burnt is being built again,
Its leading to a new beginning,
And it may never be the way it was,
And that's because I'm talking about forgiveness,
Forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness

Forgiveness
Forgiveness
Forgiveness
Forgiveness
Forgiveness
Forgiveness

If everybody could just forgive,
The world would be a much better place,
Oh
Forgiveness
