give me sweet forgiveness
and i think that it might
if not relieve all the pain that i feel
at least help me to sleep tonight.
come down like an angel
come on down like a woman
say that it’s forgiven.
give me your sweet forgiveness,
and it must be,
must be the seeds of heaven.
when i’m weak and feeling guilty
and it’s sometimes i do,
give me strength to seek forgiveness
come and help me to see it through.
well you walk in with eyes open
say to yourself i am a man
but you end up with a heart broken
but somehow baby you still understand.
