Verse 1

All hail your verdict on my shame,

The victim is the one to blame.

Poking wounds in the name of help,

Making me second guess myself.

Pre chorus 1

I can never forgive you for the nights,

That I spent self-loathing, thinking you're right.

I can never forgive you for the days,

When the numbness just wouldn't fade away.

But I know,

Forgiveness is the key to

Peace, and so,

Chorus

Forgive me for forgiving my mistakes.

Yes, I steered the wheel, but he held the brakes.

I had the illusion of being in control,

While he preyed on the darkest fears of my weak soul.

My sins are not my fault,

Everything was his call,

And he left me stranded here with a heartbreak.

So forgive me for forgiving my mistakes.

Verse 2

All hail your coldness towards me,

When I was lost in misery.

You walked away, leaving me there.

I could have died, you didn't care.

Pre chorus 2

I can never forgive you for the nights,

When I believed you and gave up my fight.

I can never forgive you for the days,

When your cruel words took my laughter away.

But I know,

Forgiveness is the key to

Joy, and so,

Chorus

Forgive me for forgiving my mistakes.

Yes, I steered the wheel, but he held the brakes.

I had the illusion of being in control,

While he preyed on the darkest fears of my weak soul.

My sins are not my fault,

Everything was his call,

And he left me stranded here with a heartbreak.

So forgive me for forgiving my mistakes.

Bridge

After all, I'm only human,

And he broke me in every way he can.

I need to let the guilt go,

And I need you to know,

That I forgive myself.

Chorus

Forgive me for forgiving my mistakes.

Yes, I steered the wheel, but he held the brakes.

I had the illusion of being in control,

While he preyed on the darkest fears of my weak soul.

My sins are not my fault,

Everything was his call,

And he left me stranded here with a heartbreak.

So forgive me for forgiving my mistakes.
