Adams, Oleta - Act Of Forgiveness Lyrics




The battle is over
The anger has ceased
A new life's beginning
And my heart is at peace
We're goin' round in circles
We've both had our say
And tried to be convincing
To have things our way
Well now, my heart is open
And I'm ready to receive
I'm knowin' that it's risky baby
Somethin' that wants to believe

In the act of forgiveness
Forgetting our past
We need a love that's
Deservin' to last
The act of forgiveness
Beginning today
Gonna learn to love you
In a brand new way

Well it felt like punches
Aimed straight from the heart
They were meant to be cripplin' baby
Meant to keep us apart
But somewhere now momma
Overheard a hammer pain
All hell to surrender
All the guilt and the blame
And it heals all of our sorrow
And it dried all of our tears
And I remember the potion baby
That made it all disappear
I believe in

The act of forgiveness
Forgetting our past
(We've gotta forget the past)
We need a love that's
Deservin' to last
The act of forgiveness
Beginning today
Gonna learn to love you
In a brand new way
(Won't you help me sing this song, y'all)

I don't wanna fight with you
I only wanna be with you
Even though you broke my heart
We can make a brand new start
Together baby, for the rest of our lives
Here's a word to hold on to
Treat each other like lovers do
See if I don't love you more
Better than the day before
Just you and me baby for the rest of our lives

The act of forgiveness
Forgetting our past
(We've gotta forget the past)
We need a love that's
Deservin' to last
The act of forgiveness
Beginning today; (right now, here today)
Gonna learn to love you
In a brand new way
(Come on sing it one more time, y'all)

I don't wanna fight with you
I only wanna be with you
Even though you broke my heart
We can make a brand new start
Together baby, for the rest of our lives
Here's a word to hold on to
Treat each other like lovers do
See if I don't love you more
Better than the day before
Just you and me baby for the rest of our lives
