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 (I must forgive you)
You must forgive me too (we must have to try)
If you wanna try to put things back the way they used to be
(honey let's start again)
'Cause there's no sense in going over and over
The same things as before
So let's not bring the past back anymore
(no looking back, we can't look back)
(honey let's start again)

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

CHORUS:
I must forgive you (I must forgive you)
You must forgive me too (we must have to try)
If you wanna try to put things back the way they used to be
(honey let's start again)
'Cause there's no sense in going over and over
The same things as before
So let's not bring the past back anymore
(no looking back, we can't look back)
(honey let's start again)

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 I'm sure will work
That we haven't tried before
Let's not bring the past back anymore
(no looking back, no looking back)
(honey let's start again)

    It means what ever argue or fights you have on your relationship... You must learn how to submit yourself and accept if you are wrong learn from it... And if you relationship done something wrong, give forgiveness, learn not to grudge on what happened on the past but instead let go and always look forward on the good thing you have with her/him.

    It only means na, kahit ano pang nangyari sa past, we need to forget about it and continue our lives with great new beginning. Right? It doesn't mean na nasaktan ka ng past mo, or we should say ex, mghihiganti na tayo. Kung kayo talaga, my nakatakda na oras pra senyo. Hindi natin kailangan madaliin! Love can wait. Kahit ilang centuries pa magdaan.

    This song reminds me of my past... I'm very happy with my life now... It was a great feeling that after all ur still freinds... Closure is very important in every relationship... Accept that life is different now... There's still a kilig feeling pero that's all... Sad that he's not happy with his mas okei sana if u're both happy... We must forgive and forget ... Don't bring back the time anymore ... We must move on... =)
