Huh
The battle is over
the anger has ceased,
a new life's beginning
and my heart is at peace.
We're goin' round in circles
we've both had our say;
And tried to be convincing,
to have things our way.

Well now, my heart is open
and I'm ready to receive
I'm knowin' that it's risky baby
Somethin' that wants to believe.

In the act of forgiveness
forgetting our past;
We need a love that's
deservin' to last.
the act of forgiveness
beginning today;
Gonna learn to love you
in a brand new way.

Well it felt like punches
aimed straight from the heart,
they were meant to be cripplin' baby,
Meant to keep us apart.
But somewhere now Momma
overheard a hammer pain
all hell to surrender,
all the guilt and the blame.

And it heals all of our sorrow
and it dried all of our tears;
And I remember the potion baby
That made it all disappear.
I believe in

The act of forgiveness
forgetting our past
(we've gotta forget the past)
We need a love that's
deservin' to last.
the act of forgiveness
beginning today;
Gonna learn to love you
in a brand new way.
(won't you help me sing this song, y'all)

Bridge:
I don't wanna fight with you,
I only wanna be with you.
Even though you broke my heart
We can make a brand new start
together baby, for the rest of our lives.
Here's a word to hold on to,
treat each other like lovers do,
See if I don't love you more,
better than the day before
just you and me baby for the rest of our lives.

The act of forgiveness
forgetting our past
(we've gotta forget the past)
We need a love that's
deservin' to last.
the act of forgiveness
beginning today; (right now, here today)
Gonna learn to love you
in a brand new way.
(come on sing it one more time, y'all)

Bridge:
I don't wanna fight with you,
I only wanna be with you.
Even though you broke my heart
We can make a brand new start
together baby, for the rest of our lives.
Here's a word to hold on to,
treat each other like lovers do,
See if I don't love you more,
better than the day before
just you and me baby for the rest of our lives.
