"Amnesty Is Granted" as written by and Sammy Hagar....
Love's an hourglass, it goes out wide then it comes in closer
Time ticks away, it drifts away leaving empty shattered moments
Who said that love could last forever?
I'm growing tired of feeling like I do
As we drift apart, little secrets come between us
As we sail away, feelin' comfort in the distance

You said that love would last forever
Neither one of us will ever surrender
There comes a time, there's a place
A change of heart, about face
This is about love, it's about forgiveness
Tell me now, tell me like it is
You don't have to give, amnesty is granted
What's done is done for everyone
Come on baby let's start again right now
Amnesty is granted

Yeah I think a lot, yeah I been thinkin' a lot
I been thinkin' about you baby
Lord knows I been thinkin' about you
I've been thinkin' that love should last forever
Neither one of us will ever surrender
There comes a time, there's a place
A change of heart, about face
This is about love, it's about forgiveness
Tell me now, tell me like it is
No one had to give, amnesty is granted
Well done is done for everyone
Come on baby let's start again right now
Amnesty, amnesty, amnesty is granted

You said that love would last forever
Neither one of us will ever surrender
There comes a time, there's a place
A change of heart, about face
This is about forgiveness
Tell me now, tell me like it is
No one has to give, amnesty is granted
What's done is done for everyone
Come on baby let's start again right now
Amnesty, amnesty, amnesty is granted

    General CommentI'm surprised no one has commented on this song, maybe it's meaning is perhaps too obvious.

    To me he's begging for another chance, a new start, a clean slate.

    "This is about forgiveness"

    Says it all, really
