There was a time when I couldn't stomach Morrissey,
I thought "He can't have had a hard a life as me"
You write this down in your diary
And leave it open for me to see.

I hope this doesn't cause offence,
But I think it's time you forgave your parents.
I've nothing to say in their defence,
But I think it's time you forgave your parents.
I've nothing to say in their defence,
But I think it's time you forgave your parents.
I hope this doesn't cause offence,
But I think it's time you forgave your parents

Whenever you try to forgive someone
It lasts a week and then it's undone.
You blame them for so much.
You blame them for so long.

In light of recent events,
Perhaps it's time you forgave your parents.
To me it makes perfect sense,
I think it's time we forgave your parents.
In light of recent events,
I think it's time to forgive your parents.
In light of recent events,
I think it's time to forgive your parents.

Let's pretend there's no harm meant,
I'm sure we can both forgive your parents.
I'm sure there's no harm meant,
It's time we forgave your parents.
Let's pretend there's no harm meant,
I think it's time we forgave your parents.
Let's say it was self defence.
I think it's time we forgave your parents.
