"Unforgiven" as written by and Karl Antony Groom Richard Lansdowne West....
Mirror mirror, what do you see?
A thousand faces staring back at me
One with a grievance, one with a gun
We'll count the paces in the morning sun

One thing you can sign without a witness
And that's forgiveness
And I promise

I've been trying to forgive you
For the bad times that we lived through
That would surely be a breakthrough
To change the world
That would change the world

Mirror mirror, I don't want to look
A dark reminder of the things I took
One for the wrong thing, one for the right
We'll count excuses 'til the evening light

One thing can revoke the hardest sentence
And that's repentance
And I meant it

I've been trying to forgive you
For the bad times that we lived through
That would surely be a breakthrough
To change the world
That would change the world

Does the world spin too fast for you?
Do you long to make it stop?

But this you know that the journey is good
And this you know that the mission is safe
Well you've been slated and misunderstood
But if you could take all the friction away
That would change the world

One thing can revoke the hardest sentence
And that's repentance
And I meant it

I've been trying to forgive you
For the bad times that we lived through
That would surely be a breakthrough
To change the world
That would change the world

Let me go
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go
