Intro:
I was wrong when i hurt you
But did you have to hurt me too
Did you think revenge will make it better?
I don't care about the past
I just want our love to last
There's a way to bring us back together

Chorus:
I must forgive you
You must forgive me too
If we wanna try to put things back
The way they used to be

'cause there's no sense in going over and over
The same things as before
So let's not bring the past up anymore

Out of all the good we had
You only keep track of the bad
Though you knew i never really loved her
Didn't anyone tell you yet
That to forgive is to forget
How can you be mad if you don't remember

Repeat Chorus:
I must forgive you
And you must forgive me too
It's the only thing that's left
That we haven't try to do
One thing that i'm sure will work
That we haven't tried before
Let's not bring the past up anymore

    Sometimes, we do some things that hurt the persons we love because they've hurt us too. This song is in the persona of those persons which have realized their mistakes after the person who loves them hurts them back in rebellion. We, people, tend to save our prides by avenging, if not holding grudges, towards the people who hurts us the most. It's more common in the relationships of those people that have humongous egos.

    Last 22nd of December '08 my mobile rang and I picked it up and said "HELLO"! Surprisingly, it was my ex-bf. I did not even expect any phone call from him. Our conversation lasted about 12 minutes.
    Till now, I can't get rid of him in my heart. In January of 2008, he left me for another woman. When I learnt the news, it really collapsed my entire world. It made me sick and stayed in my room for about 4 days. I hidden myself from him for about 4 months and yes I recovered but the love I felt for him refused to go yet I have accepted the fact that it's over. Around May of 2008, I see him again. Pretending that everything is fine and that I have moved on already(opposite from what I exactly felt).
    We talked (the very first time). He apologized for what he'd done to me and again I was pretending that it's okay & said to him "APOLOGY ACCEPTED"and I refused to discuss or listen the reason he wants to explained how, what and why things happened!
    He attempted to fix things between us but I wasn't convinced. And things gettin' worse. We keep on throwing nasty words against each other. Using other people to hurt each other. I realized that it didn't help, instead I concentrate my job and the truth >>until now I still love him>>!

    Past. Isang salita na may isang malalim na kahulugan. Ang isang past ay isang pangyayaring mahirap nang ibalik pa. Ngunit pwede itong maging way para mas lalong maging matibay ang kasalukuyan. Ang isang past ay karanasan na magtuturo sa bawat isa sa tin upang itama ang isang pagkakamali. Kung nagkamali tayo sa past, maaari nating ituwid yun sa kasalukuyan. Di man natin maibalik ang past na nangyari, maaari naman nating gamitin ang past upang makapagsimula muli ng panibagong buhay :)

    This songs really means many things to me, when me and my bf broke up I got hurt but I know that he was the one who got hurt so much. By the tym that we're not together I have learned that I really love him so much and I'm wrong to hurt him. But we still love each other so we both decided to have each other on our sides. Now that we're back together I will not let him go away from me again. I will cherish all the times that we will be together. I love you hon_09 koh happy 11th monthsary muah so happy to have you back.

    Yes its so sad. Just like you asagnil4, meron din ako naging boyfriend.
    At mahal na mahal ko sya, naging mag boyfriend kami ng mahabang panahon and I was thinking of handa na kami sa isa't isa at kilala na namin ang bawat isa. At ang buong akala ko na wala kaming problem until one day I go home from work and there was a feeling na gusto ko sya makita that time, at pag punta ko sa kanila parang ayaw ko pumasok sa loob ng bahay nila. Yun pala meron sya itinatago na babae, at ang masakit pa ako na lang pala ang hindi nakaka alam, then when I found out about it, ang sakit. At ang masakit na buntis nya. And ruin my life. And now I realize that its ok that it happen maybe he don't deserve me.
