I'm tired, so tired, it's time to give it up
I've been draggin' his memory around long enough
It's weighin' heavy like a stone around my neck
I've got to find a way to forgive and forget

Forgive and forget that's what I've got to do
Forgive and forget all the hurt he's put me through
I know the only way I'll lay my burdens down to rest
Is if I can forgive and forget

To live in peace, be free of the past
I close my eyes and sweet-dreams is all that I ask
But if I die and peace has not come yet
Write on my stone, I tried to forgive and forget

Forgive and forget that's what I've got to do
Forgive and forget all the hurt he's put me through
I know the only way I'll lay my burdens down to rest
Is if I can forgive and forget

Forgive and forget that's what I've got to do
Forgive and forget all the hurt he's put me through
I know the only way I'll lay my burdens down to rest
Is if I can forgive and forget

Yeah, I know the only way I'll lay my burdens down to rest
Is if I can forgive and forget
