"Forgiveness" as written by and Taylor York Hayler Nichole Williams....
You hurt me bad this time, no coming back
And I cry 'till I couldn't cry, another heart attack
If I lay on the floor, maybe I'll wake up
And I don't pick up when you call
'Cause your voice is a gun
Every word is a bullet hole
Shot a hole in the sun
If I never look up maybe I'll never notice

And you, you want forgiveness
But I, I just can't do it yet

There's still a thread that runs from your body to mine
And you can't break what you don't see, an invisible line
If I follow it down would we just be alright?
But it could take me all your life to learn to love
How I thought I could love someone
I haven't even begun
If it's all up to us we might as well give up

And you, you want forgiveness
(I can barely hang on to myself)
But I, I can't give you that
(I can't give you, I can't give you that)
And you, you want forgiveness
(I'm afraid that I'll have nothing left)
But I, I just can't do it yet
(I can't do, I just can't do it yet)

Don't you go and get it twisted
Forgiving is not forgetting
Don't you go and get it twisted
Forgiving is not forgetting
No, it's not forgetting
No, I'll never forget it, no

And you, you want forgiveness
(I can barely hang on to myself)
But I, I can't give you that
(I can't give you, I can't give you that)
And you, you want forgiveness
(I'm afraid that I'll have nothing left)
But I, I just can't do it yet
(I can't do, I just can't do it yet)

    General CommentHayley wrote the song about her now Ex-Husband Chad Gilbert. It was leaked he cheated on Hayley with one of her best friends while the two were engaged. Hayley ended up getting back with him and the two go married. There was also a lot of other problems as well, like Chad putting Hayley down for her Depression. He's wrote songs about him Cheating on her (The Sound of two voices), he wrote a song about him being annoyed with her being down all the time (Bad Mood). This song is her telling him she can't forgive him.
