Story Behind the Song

The baby abandoned at the gates of the city is grown and has gone back to China. She sings this song to her Chinese parents as she walks along the Great Wall.

Lyrics

Forgiven

I can feel you as
I am walking
Out along the dragon wall
I have come back and
I am searching for
Something I can?t see at all
I have no pictures
I have no letters
To tell me if this is my home
But my past is waking from a slumber
Deep inside these stones

Little flowers need
Lots of water and
Sun to start them on their way
They will grow if
The soil is right
And the roots are given room to stray
I have traveled 8,000 miles
Just to feel my feet on my own land
Sometimes flowers need to be divided
To do the best they can

You let me go but I?m here so you?ll know that
I have forgiven you

Sometimes silence
Speaks so loudly
Without saying anything
Explanations can
Make you wish you had
Stopped your questioning
Sometimes stories I
Tell myself can be
So much better than the truth
I believe you loved me and you left me
and that?s what love had to do

You let me go, but I?m here so you?ll know that
I have forgiven you
I have forgiven you
