Song Description

Forgiveness.

Story Behind the Song

I held on to bitterness for so long that it made me very undesirable. I finally realized that I was punishing myself more than the people I hated. So I allowed myself to forgive.

Lyrics

It's what you said
It's what you did
And it's my right to hold it against you
To hold it inside and I can't hide what I feel
Because you gave me this pain

Life used to be beautiful but now it's old and gray
I've watched these colors fade into bitterness, it's all a mess
Why can't it be beautiful just give me one more day
It's time for you to change and say you were wrong
To make life beautiful

It's how I live
It's who I am
And all this time I've held it against you
I've held it inside and I can't hide what I feel
Because I kept all this pain

I used to be beautiful but now I'm old and gray
I've watched my colors fade into bitterness, I'm all a mess
Why can't I be beautiful just give me one more day
I know I need to change and say I was wrong
To make me beautiful

I wasted all this precious time
I let this eat me up inside
I think it's time to finally let this go but...
It's not so easy to forgive
So I recall what Jesus did
He gave his life so we could be forgiven

Life should be more beautiful I won't let it turn to gray
I'll let this anger fade to forgiveness and nothing less
I could be more beautiful with every passing day
As I begin to change and say I was wrong
To make life beautiful
