Why Can't We

The IsaacsBuy this song

He lies awake there all alone most every night
 Looking back on all of his mistakes  Wishing through the tears that he could just go back
'Cause there's a lot of things he'd like to change 
He just can't forgive himself and forget 
Even though God already did

If He can love someone and find the good within 
In spite of what they've done, no matter where they've been
If He can let it go and set the debtor free
If He can keep forgiving you and me
Why can't we

There've been times I've been so hurt by someone else
I didn't wanna give a second chance
I let all the bitterness take control 
And took grace into my own hands 
But even Jesus said, "Whoever's done no wrong 
Let him throw the first stone"

If He can love someone and find the good within 
In spite of what they've done, no matter where they've been
If He can let it go and set the debtor free
If He can keep forgiving you and me
Why can't we

He was hated and rejected, betrayed by those He trusted 
Even hanging on the cross, He said, "Father, please forgive them"

If He can love someone and find the good within 
In spite of what they've done, no matter where they've been
If He can let it go and set the debtor free
If He can keep forgiving you and me
Why can't we

Why can't we
