"I Forgive You" as written by and James Francis Deeghan David Ryan Strauchman....
You, you've got a way of keeping me on my toes
You've got a way of thinking whatever you do goes
And I really don't mind 'cause you're keeping me amused
You treated my love to your god damn crazy moods
And I, I forgive you

I forgive you for the truth
I liked you better when you lied
And I forgive you for being you
'Cause you were better when you faked every smile
And now you're knocking on my front door
That's what I've been living for
Excuse me as I laugh my ass off
I forgive you for your ways
Now that that I finally got away

I, I'm gonna miss
Watching you while you sleep
'Cause that was the only time I ever found some peace
I used to believe that it was me who was insane
But now I take it back 'cause compared to you I'm okay
And I, I forgive you

I forgive you for the truth
I liked you better when you lied
And I forgive you for being you
'Cause you were better when you faked every smile
And now you're knocking on my front door
That's what I've been living for
Excuse me while I laugh my ass off
I forgive you for your ways
Now that I finally got away from you

I could throw my cares away
Now I know how freedom tastes
And I thank you for the pain
'Cause now I can deal with anything
I foretold the break
Now that I finally broke away from you

You, you've got a way of keeping me on my toes

I forgive you for the truth
I liked you better when you lied
And I forgive you for being you
'Cause you were better when you faked every smile
And now you're knocking on my front door
That's what I've been living for
Excuse me while I laugh my ass off
And now you're knocking on my front door
That's what I've been living for
Excuse me while I laugh my ass off
And now you're knocking on my front door
That's what I've been living for
Excuse me while I laugh my ass off
I forgive you for your ways
Now that I finally got away

    General CommentThis song is pretty self explanatory.
    Now I finally see what we truly were. I asked but I didn't really want the answer.
    "I Forgive you for the truth, I liked you better when you lied."
    Its hard to explain. She wasn't happy with the relation ship they had but she didn't tell him how she felt
    She just kept it to herself the entire time having affairs of her own. And he's like dang this is not what I expected I thought everything was fine, but thank you for telling me the truth so that you would feel better even though you just crushed my soul.
    "I forgive you being you, You were better when you faked every smile."
    Now that I see what you truly felt, I liked you better before I even asked.
    "I forgive you for your ways now that I finally got away."
    I can't stay with you now. But I forgive you for all the bad things you've done to me now that we're done.
