13. Forgive Me

The Long Fall Back To Earth
by Jars of Clay



 

Well, I tried to figure out all the mysteries of love
I made confessions under pure duress
I thought that everything was meaningless

As far as the eye could see
As deep as the heart could be
Such an impossibility that you would forgive me
Forgive me

I wasted another year, waiting for the words
For things to be more clear
And now Iím so afraid, if I find the words to say
Have I lost you anyway?

For every town there is a crier
Like a thief in every choir
And when I think of the mistakes Iíve made
All my transgressions on a big parade

As far as the eye can see
As deep as the heart can be
Such an impossibility that you would forgive me
Forgive me

I wasted another year, waiting for the words
For something to be more clear
And now Iím so afraid, if I find the words to say
Have I lost you anyway?

As far as the eye can see
As deep as the heart can be
Such an impossibility that you would forgive me

I wasted another year, waiting for the words
For something to be more clear
But now I am afraid, if I find the words to say
Have I lost you anyway?

ĎCause Iíve found the words to say
Iíve been thinking them for days
And now Iím begging you to stay

Behind the Song:
DAN HASELTINE: ďUsually we'll know when a record is done. But with The Long FallÖ, we just kept feeling there was more to say. This song came later in the process, and when I started it, it was about somebody else. Then all of a sudden it started to become about me. In the course of making this record -- a record about relationships -- I started to think, ĎYou know, I could really learn how to ask for forgiveness in better ways.í And Iím always surprised when forgiveness is offered.Ē
