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

    This is one of the saddest songs for me because I let go the one person I have loved most since I was in college. He was my first and my everything then but he just hurt me. For 5 years, my life only revolved in him until one day. I learned that he has other girlfriend. What hurts most is that she got her pregnant. They got married even if he keeps on telling me that I am the one he needed most and that he regrets hurting me. I wanted him so badly for me but I cannot just set aside the fact that he is going to be a father and that if I will accept him, the other girl and the baby will suffer. As mentioned in the song I must forgive him. My life turned upside down because of him. But still I am thankful that once I had him in my life. The PAST can no longer UNDO but we can look back on it and learned from it. Forgive and move forward with a smile even if it’s hurting because along the way you will realize that GOD has in store something better for you so Lets not bring the past up anymore.

    its not about the patience though.. its about how you forgive and forget..
    I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.

    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.

    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 :)
