Forgive & Forget

  • It's funny how the nighttime
    Brings to light the darkest side of me
    And I've never found the right lines
    I'm always sayin' things that I don't mean
    And I know I never made time
    It's only now that I've begun to see (whoa)

    Well I was out there searching
    What I'm lookin' for was right in front of me

    It's always takin' time
    To realize what I gave up
    Cause it's so clear now what I couldn't see back then (oh yeah)

    If i could take it back
    If I could take it back
    Oh, I'm sorry for the stupid things I said
    If you could forgive me, babe, I won't forget
    If I could take it back

    I know you were my lifeline
    But you don't know what you got till it's not there
    And now I finally see that I said the things I did cause I was cared

    Always taking time to realize what I gave up
    Cause it's so clear now what I couldn't see back then, what I didn't know back then

    If I could take it back
    If I could take it back
    Oh, I'm sorry for the stupid things i said
    If you could give me, babe, I won't forget
    If i could take it back (Take me back)
    If I could take it back (I would take it back, yeah)
    Oh I'm sorry for the stupid things I said
    If you forgive me babe I won't forget (If you forgive me baby)

    So if you take me back, you know I woulda never let you go 'cause baby I don't want to be alone

    Oh if I could take back all I said
    Me and you could start again
    You know that I can't do this on my own

    If I could take it back
    If I could take it back
    Oh I'm sorry for the stupid things I said
    If you forgive me, babe, I won't forget
    If I could take it back
    If I could take it back
    Oh I'm sorry for the stupid things I said
    If you forgive me, babe I won't forget
