Forgiving Lyrics

by Lisa Marie Presley

There was once a light inside of me
But lately I see that it's dimmed out slowly
And I fight, I kick, I yell, I scream
That what is happening, well it can't be really
And as I go along I'm finding the ground below
You can get ripped out from under your feet
The light around you turned out blinding
The darkness a more honest place to be

And I want to find in me that I can still believe
And be forgiving
Yes, I want to be like you
Can you teach me how to be forgiving

There was once a friend inside of me
But lately I see there's an enemy
I fight, I kick, I yell, I scream
What is happening but no one hears me
And as I go along I'm finding
The friends I thought I had
They weren't good friends at all
No I don't really need reminding
I'm much too jaded and I'm much too cynical

And I want to find in me that I can still believe
And be forgiving
Yes, I want to be like you
Can you teach me how to be forgiving

Yes, I want to find in me that I can still believe
And be forgiving
Yes, I want to be like you
Can you teach me how to be forgiving

Yes, I want to find in me that I can still believe
And be forgiving
And, I want to be like you
Can you teach me how to be forgiving
