about

I co-wrote this song with Dayna Shereck and it was an interesting song to collaborate on. We both had painful past relationships that we were still in the process of letting go of that we could draw on for the depth of this song. We believe that this concept of truly letting go and forgiving someone can speak to every single human being. And that only when we truly forgive, and let go, can we be free.

lyrics

If I say that I forgive you, tell me what does that mean?
Moving on or staying stuck, sadly I’m somewhere in between
We don’t talk about the pain, or the promises we made. Wanna say,

Chorus:
"I still love you" and "I forgive you"
and I’ll pray that I mean the words I say

I won’t let the hurt define me, or let my broken heart remind me of our past
When I take one step ahead, I always fall 2 steps behind, It won’t last
Can I trust you once again, and let my heart open & mend. Wanna say

Chorus:
"I still love you" and "I forgive you"
and I’ll pray that I mean the words I say

Things will never be the same, but today is a new day, you’re all I need
When I start to think too much, all I need is your sweet touch to save me

Bridge:
Turn over a new leaf. Forget about the grief.
And I might find...that i can say

Chorus:
“I still love you” and "I forgive you"
And I’ll mean every word that I say
I wanna say “I still love” and “I forgive you"
And I’ll mean every word that I say.
And I’ll mean every word that I say
