Beth Crowley - My Forgiveness Lyrics




I never claimed to be a saint
but keep in mind neither are you
you wield your book like it's your greatest weapon
but did you ever stop and think that maybe
that was not its intention, its intention

So you can gnash your teeth and stomp your feet
Say that I'll have hell to pay
but this tapestry of hate you've woven
has begun to fray
because in the end words are only words
yet you still hide behind them no matter who you hurt
so forgive me if I do not follow suit
then again who says my forgiveness lies with you

You have the right to disagree
For what it's worth I'll respect your beliefs
Can't you afford the same compassion
to your fellow man even if you do not
understand his actions, his actions

So you can gnash your teeth and stomp your feet
Say that I'll have hell to pay
but this tapestry of hate you've woven
has begun to fray
because in the end words are only words
yet you still hide behind them no matter who you hurt
so forgive me if I do not follow suit
then again who says my forgiveness lies with you

And if your heaven won't let me in
because I refuse to cast my stones
I'll spend eternity wandering
searching for a place to call my own
but I won't be alone

I never claimed to be a saint
but keep in mind neither are you

So you can gnash your teeth and stomp your feet
Say that I'll have hell to pay
but this tapestry of hate you've woven
has begun to fray
because in the end words are only words
yet you still hide behind them no matter who you hurt
so forgive me if I do not follow suit
then again who says my forgiveness lies with you
