Help Me Forgive You

Story Behind The Song

My former wife had an affair after 9 years of marriage. Before moving out 2 days notice, she had become emotionally and verbally abusive; she seemed to take pleasure in it. She moved out when our eldest was 4 and our twins were 1. Forgiving her has been a long process, so i wrote a song about it.

Feeling a bit uncertain to reach back, pull the curtains.
Tomorrow please come for Today; if not for a visit, maybe to stay.

Help Me Forgive You. Help Me Forgive You.

A broken wing. A black and blue sky. Sometimes the Sun gets in our eyes. A tear gently falls, and shows a new way. Sleeping night exhales a new day, so we feel not so alone. So we feel not so alone.

Time just might heal what I used to feel. Bring back the life I knew. Before I leave, I will forgive you.

With a look, maybe I will find a love before the Sun catches time, so I feel not so alone; while the world feels not quite at home.

Time just might heal what I used to feel. Bring back the life I knew. Before I leave I will forgive you. (help me forgive you)

Help me Forgive you.

Help me forgive you.

Great Quality. I like how it gets right into the song.
