Forgiveness [Live Acoustic] [Live]
by Sarah McLachlan



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 will truly miss
Through the years we had it all
The midnight whispers, the midday calls
This house of cards, it had to fall

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

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
Don't want your deceiving smile, standing at my door

And I don't care what people say
I'm ready now to face this day
'Cause 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
If you have to hurt

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 is real
'Cause you don't know much about heaven, boy
If you have to hurt to feel
