Lyrics

I remember your eyes. I remember your voice
There's this feeling I have when I don't have a choice
I take a breath in the dark, just to whisper your name
Where everything's wrong but nothing has changed

Please Forgive Me for we cannot change the past
I wish that I could right the wrongs that I've caused
Please Forgive Me I could use a second chance
And I'd like to take this time to say I'm sorry.I'm sorry
Please Forgive Me

Now the rain starts to fall, like the pain that I've caused
And we never can win when someone has lost
See the scars of my past. I just can't let them fade
And forgiving myself is a debt I can't pay

Please Forgive Me for we cannot change the past
I wish that I could right the wrongs that I've caused
Please Forgive Me I could use a second chance
And I'd like to take this time to say I'm sorry.I'm sorry
Please Forgive Me

Oh God, please help me calm this storm inside my soul
Oh God, please lead me to the placxe I've never known

Please Forgive Me for we cannot change the past
I wish that I could right the wrongs that I've caused
Please Forgive Me I could use a second chance
And I'd like to take this time to say I'm sorry.I'm sorry
Please Forgive Me

I remember your eyes. I remember your voice
There's this feeling I have when I don't have a choice

Very strong vocals; nice blend of the two voices.
Overall very nice mix of the instrumental components.

This is an awfully nice piece of music. The female vocal almost knocked me over. Thats one of the nicest guitar accompaniments i've heard. Very nice and original chord progression, and chords in here. Great writing, specially music. Great sounds.

Loved the track!! Great vocals, lyrics & instruments. A superb recording, can see lots of placement for this!!

Beautiful. Just beautiful.
Everything is working here and working real well it is! I'm still singing the chorus long after listening. Awesome stuff here folks.

A real folk song, and what a very pleasant voice, easy and effortless and yet with a nice, deep down hoarseness now and then. The lyrics are clever and sweet. He is so very contrite, It seems impossible that he will not be forgiven.

This song is reminiscent of Jackson Browne, including the vocals. Loved the vocals by the way, you sing right on pitch with every note. Good touch with the dobro, and did I hear a little banjo in there? I liked it so much I played it twice!!! Great job.

Really nice tune! Chorus and hook work very well....memorable. Simple and effective melody that fits the mood and topic. Well sung, fine voice with an emotive delivery. Instrumental backup is perfect for the genre and easy on the ears. Well done!

Really nice track. Great vocal and backing. Well produced and performed. Special mention for the banjo.

I really like the lead vocals, the banjo sound really pulls you in.

Really like the song structure here, while it's fairly standard initially, I really like the the chord changes and vocal melody at the end of each phrase. The chorus has a great structure as well and ends up being extremely catchy. The change up in the bridge works well and adds nice variety.
Excellent song, gets a 5 from me, best of luck! I think I'll be humming this for a while...

Great vocals a really good sound really catchy well put together would make a good soundtrack for a movie. Keep up the good work

Great opening lines - "I remember your eyes; I remember your voice." I love the whole first verse. I love the modulation halfway through the song. The banjo is great. Timeless subject matter.
