Paramore - Forgiveness Lyrics




You hurt me bad this time, no coming back
And I cried till I couldn't cry, another heart attack
If I lay on the floor, maybe I'll wake up
And I don't pick up when you call
'Cause your voice is a gun
Every word is a bullet hole
Shot a hole in the sun
If I never look up maybe I'll never notice

And you, you want forgiveness
But I, I just can't do it yet

There's still a thread that runs from your body to mine
And you can't break what you don't see, an invisible line
If I follow it down will we just be alright?
But it could take me all your life to learn to love
How I thought I could love someone
I haven't even begun
If it's all up to us we might as well give up

And you, you want forgiveness
(I can barely hang on to myself)
But I, I can't give you that
(I can't give you, I can't give you that)
And you, you want forgiveness
(I'm afraid that I'll have nothing left)
But I, I just can't do it yet
(I can't do, I just can't do it yet)

Don't you go and get it twisted
Forgiving is not forgetting
Don't you go and get it twisted
Forgiving is not forgetting
No, it's not forgetting
No, I'll never forget it, no

And you, you want forgiveness
(I can barely hang on to myself)
But I, I can't give you that
(I can't give you, I can't give you that)
And you, you want forgiveness
(I'm afraid that I'll have nothing left)
But I, I just can't do it yet
(I can't do, I just can't do it yet)

Paramore Forgiveness Comments
  1. abhishek nalla

    I heard my crush singing this song on her ig and came here

  2. Jimmy The Clown

    Omg
    This entire album has an 80s sound to it 😍

  3. Agent 1

    Unrelated but why is the comment section for Vicious Love turned off? I could have sworn it was on for that music video.

  4. David Sharphead

    This is my favorite Paramore song ever!

  5. David Terence

    QUENTE NOVAMENTE.... OUVI NA LIVE DO HYDRO FDC

  6. GANG GANG GANG

    This song is backwards bullshit.

  7. Birds of Accord

    Low-key thought After Laughter was the best album of 2017.

    I also hate that Haley's suffered and been treated the way she has by her ex. I hope she comes to the knowledge of Jesus Christ as her Savior. Hearing her lyrics and past interviews, and some of her involvement in other projects makes me think she's definitely heard the Gospel and knows her conscience is bothering her. After Laughter to me is confirmation that she's seen truth and beauty in the Gospel, but won't submit to it. She's ripe for Jesus to change her life given her tribulations and the knowledge I think she possesses about life. Getting hints of the book of Ecclesiastes when I hear her on this album. Speaking as Christian and I realize people on here will not share this view, but it is a sincere hope of mine for her life to be better than what it's been.

  8. Eion Cosima

    [Verse 1]
    You hurt me bad this time, no coming back
    And I cried 'till I couldn't cry, another heart attack
    If I lay on the floor, maybe I'll wake up
    And I don't pick up when you call
    'Cause your voice is a gun
    Every word is a bullet hole
    Shot a hole in the sun
    If I never look up maybe I'll never notice

    [Chorus]
    And you, you want forgiveness
    But I, I just can't do it yet

    [Verse 2]
    There's still a thread that runs from your body to mine
    And you can't break what you don't see, an invisible line
    If I follow it down, will we just be alright?
    But it could take me all your life to learn to love
    How I thought I could love someone
    I haven't even begun
    If it's all up to us we might as well give up

    [Chorus]
    And you, you want forgiveness
    (I can barely hang on to myself)
    But I, I can't give you that
    (I can't give you, I can't give you that)
    And you, you want forgiveness
    (I'm afraid that I'll have nothing left)
    But I, I just can't do it yet
    (I can't do, I just can't do it yet)


    [Bridge]
    Don't you go and get it twisted
    Forgiving is not forgetting
    Don't you go and get it twisted
    Forgiving is not forgetting
    No, it's not forgetting
    No, I'll never forget it, no

    [Chorus]
    And you, you want forgiveness
    (I can barely hang on to myself)
    But I, I can't give you that
    (I can't give you, I can't give you that)
    And you, you want forgiveness
    (I'm afraid that I'll have nothing left)
    But I, I just can't do it yet
    (I can't do, I just can't do it yet)

  49. Trenton Adams

    Best song on after laughter. Rose colored boy a close 2nd.

  50. Rebeca Bivar

    I spent like MONTHS trying to find out what song 'Forgiveness' reminded me of and today I was feeling all the 80's vibe and played my 80's playlist, then I heard the beggining of Everybody Wants To Rule The World - Tears for Fears, and I was like why the heck is Paramore on this playlist? Then I realized the resemblance and I'm still like ~DAMN PARAMORE you got the 80's vibe too well!!~ And it also made me realize that this songs reminds me of The Moment - Tame Impala, 'cause the song by Tears for Fears instantly makes my head think about The Moment, anyways, I just love them all <3

  51. Bill Baker

    99 percent sure hayley was dropping tabs while writing this record.

  52. Ryan Cavanaugh

    Like I gave you a reason to, "Shooter"..

    Ryan Cavanaugh

    "After Disaster"?

  53. Melody Rossing

    Thank you #Paramore for being so perfect and fantastic!!! 100% every time, all the time... just what I need to hear, right when I need to hear it. You guys are spot on with everything you do, and I'm so grateful that you continue to bless the world with your talents!😊

  54. andro YT

  55. pacificdrumma

    Everyyyybodyyyyy wants toooo ruuuuuule the world

  56. House and Lot for Sale in Baguio City

    Bump bububmp bump bububump. Feelin that in your veins? The paramore Bass?

  57. Sarah Garratt

    This song reminds me of Haim album "Days are Gone" songs "if "I Could Change Your Mind" and "The Wire" and a bit of there new album Something to tell You song called "Want U Back", its when she sings "you want forgiveness" and then the backing vocals behind remind me of Haim. Is this a new musical inspiration from Este, Danielle and Alana Haim that made Paramore want to explore? If so I love Haim so the music is amazing.

  58. Castillo Oculto

    Que mule rola

  95. Haidee Descanzo

    You hurt me bad this time, no coming back
    And I cry 'till I couldn't cry, another heart attack
    If I lay on the floor, maybe I'll wake up
    And I don't pick up when you call
    'Cause your voice is a gun
    Every word is a bullet hole
    Shot a hole in the sun
    If I never look up maybe I'll never notice

    And you, you want forgiveness
    But I, I just can't do it yet

    There's still a thread that runs from your body to mine
    And you can't break what you don't see, an invisible line
    If I follow it down would we just be alright?
    But it could take me all your life to learn to love
    How I thought I could love someone

    And you, you want forgiveness
    (I can barely hang on to myself)
    But I, I can't give you that

    And you, you want forgiveness
    (I'm afraid that I'll have nothing left)
    But I, I just can't do it yet
    (I can't do, I just can't do it yet)

    Don't you go and get it twisted
    Forgiving is not forgetting
    Don't you go and get it twisted
    Forgiving is not forgetting
    No, it's not forgetting
    No, I'll never forget it, no

    And you, you want forgiveness
    (I can barely hang on to myself)
    But I, I can't give you that
    (I can't give you, I can't give you that)
    And you, you want forgiveness
    (I'm afraid that I'll have nothing left)
    But I, I just can't do it yet
    (I can't do, I just can't do it yet)

  96. Priscila Ane

    He want forgiviness

  97. Tiago Martins

    This song is so especial to me... one time i cheated on my boyfriend and he forgave me then 4 months after we were going on a trip together in his car and this song started to play and then when hayley starts to sing the part "Forgiving is not forgetting" he immediately looked me in the eye and i saw how much it affected him, i felt like shit and ashamed , and from now one every time i heard this song i think about that moment and how stupid i was in the past but we have to learn to move foward with our own mistakes.

  98. Lavaalamp

    i would like a collab with spencer sotelo and hayley williams, they're sounds would be really dope together imo.

  99. Angella Knight

    from the bottom to the top of my heart, thank you for this album, you guys.
