"FORGIVE AND FORGET"

Verse 1
Where we gonna put our hatred
When it's time to say a prayer?
Seems like we've gotten kinda tired
Of these balls & chains we wear.

Well, if we really wanna make things right,
You know it's gonna be an uphill fight,
And only God can give the strength to try to …

Chorus 1
Forgive & forget,
Forgive & forget,
'Cause we can't build our dreams on regret,
Forgive & forget.

Verse 2
To mess things up is human,
But forgiveness is divine.
To forgive someone who's hurt you
Takes lovin' of a Godly kind.

If we really wanna move ahead
And clear the bitterness out of our head,
We need Jesus to give us love instead to …

Chorus 2
Forgive & forget,
Forgive & forget,
'Cause we can't build our dreams on regret,
Forgive & forget.

Bridge
It's the noblest revenge,
It's thinkin' with your heart,
And asking for forgiveness is a loving place to start to …

Chorus 3
Forgive & forget,
Forgive & forget,
'Cause we can't build our dreams on regret,
Forgive & forget.

Verse 3
They say that love is blind,
But hatred's blindness too.
When you stand & point that finger,
There's three pointin' back at you.

But if you can't forgive the one who's askin' you,
You break the bridge you'll need to cross over some day soon,
'Cause nobody's perfect,
And that goes for me, too!
