Morissette, Alanis - Forgiven Lyrics




You know how us Catholic girls can be
We make up for so much time a little too late
I never forgot it, confusing as it was
No fun with no guilt feelings
The sinners, the saviors, the loverless priests
I'll see you next Sunday

We all had our reasons to be there
We all had a thing or two to learn
We all needed something to cling to
So we did

I sang Alleluia in the choir
I confessed my darkest deeds to an envious man
My brothers they never went blind for what they did
But I may as well have
In the name of the Father, the Skeptic and the Son
I had one more stupid question

We all had our reasons to be there
We all had a thing or two to learn
We all needed something to cling to
So we did

What I learned I rejected but I believe again
I will suffer the consequence of this inquisition
If I jump in this fountain, will I be forgiven
We all had our reasons to be there
We all had a thing or two to learn
We all needed something to cling to
So we did

We all had delusions in our head
We all had our minds made up for us
We had to believe in something
So we did

    Que letra, que voz, que interpretação. Minha favorita da Alanis.

  7. Федя Кастров

    Крутая песня. Особенно в том, что фактически спета "на три голоса". Хороша, как и весь альбом. Эх, Аланис, почему ты не Полли Харви....

  8. Guaton Maiden

    What a great and underrated song!

    Robby Lindblom

    oh yeah ! these lyrics are so deep , but most of of this album is just awesome.

  9. Manna Entertainment

    I wonder if Alanis wrote this song from personal experience or if its a friends story? The lyrics break my heart!
