I got the call today, I didn't want to hear
but I knew that it would come.
An old, true friend of ours was talkin' on the phone,
she said you found someone.
And I thought of all the bad luck
and the struggles we went through
and how I lost me and you lost you.
What are those voices outside love's open door,
make us throw off our contentment
and beg for something more?

I'm learning to live without you now,
but I miss you sometimes.
The more I know, the less I understand,
all the things I thought I knew, I'm learning again.
I've been tryin' to get down
to the heart of the matter
but my will gets weak
and my thoughts seem to scatter
but I think it's about forgiveness,
forgiveness
even if, even if you don't love me anymore.

These times are so uncertain
There's a yearning undefined
.....people filled with rage
We all need a little tenderness
How can love survive in such a graceless age?
The trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness
They're the very things we kill, I guess
Pride and competition
cannot fill these empty arms
And the work I put between us doesn't keep me warm

I'm learning to live with out you now
But I miss you, baby
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I'd figured out
I have to learn again
I've been trying to get down
to the heart of the matter
But everything changes
and my friends seem to scatter
But I think it's about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don't love me anymore.

There are people in your life
who've come and gone,
They let you down,
you know they've hurt your pride.
You better put it behind you;
'cause life goes on.
You keep carryin' that anger,
it'll eat you up inside baby,

I've been trying to get down
to the heart of the matter
But everything changes
and my friends seem to scatter
But I think it's about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don't love me,

I've been tryin' to get down
to the heart of the matter
because the flesh will get weak
and the ashes will scatter.
So, I'm thinkin' about forgiveness,
forgiveness
even if , even if you don't love me.

Forgiveness, forgiveness,
forgiveness, forgiveness,
forgiveness, forgiveness,
even if, even if you don't love me.
