SARAH MCLACHLAN lyrics - Forgiveness

SARAH MCLACHLAN
"Forgiveness"

Loving, lying enemy
I have seen your face before
Never thought again I'd see
Didn't want to anymore
I remember your loving eyes
And the moonlit kiss
The evening lullabies
I would truly miss

Through the years we'd had it all
The midnight whispers, the midday calls
This house of cards it had to fall

You ask for forgiveness, you're asking too much
I have sheltered my heart in a place you can't touch
I don't believe when you tell me your love is real

'Cause you don't know much about heaven boy if you have to hurt to feel

Now every time I see you
I can't help but look away
All along I had believed everything you'd say
When I look now I know I've seen your face before

I don't want your deceiving smile standing at my door
I don't care what people say
I'm ready now to face this day
I have lost you along the way

And you ask for forgiveness
You're asking too much
I have sheltered my heart in a place you can't touch
I don't believe when you tell me your love is real
'Cause you don't know much about heaven boy if you have to hurt to feel

'Cause you don't know much about heaven boy to ask for forgiveness
You're asking too much
I have sheltered my heart in a place you can't touch
I don't believe when you tell me your love it real

'Cause you don't know much about heaven boy if you have to hurt to feel
