lyrics

I wish I could erase the past
And wipe away what you've done to me
I wish I could write the story
Of a future where we live in peace
I wish I could erase the past
And wipe away what I've done to you
I wish I could write the story
Of a future where we call a truce

If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free

I don't want to carry the weight of the past
Into my life today
I don't want to poison the future
By holding onto my mistakes
I don't want you to carry the burden
Of what's we did and what we said
I'm tired of drinking this poison and waiting for you to end up dead

If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free
If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free

Everything we keep inside is killing us
Can't you see?
All the hurt we keep inside is killing you
Killing me

I wish I could erase the guilt, the hurt, the blame, the lies (and the) shame
But I don't want to pretend nothing happened and walk away from it all unchanged
Everything happens for a reason and maybe one day we will know
I can only hope and pray we both find a way to live and let go

If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free
If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free

Everything we keep inside is killing us
Can't you see?
