Forgiveness

This song is by Sarah McLachlan and appears on the album Laws of Illusion (2010).

Loving, lying enemy, I have seen your face before
Never thought again I'd see, didn't want to any more
I remember your loving eyes and the moonlit kiss
The evening lullabies I would truly miss

Through the years we'd 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
I 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

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
