01. Forgiven

Pieces Of A Real Heart
by Sanctus Real


Well, the past is playing with my head / And failure knocks me down again / Iím reminded of the wrongs that I have said and done / And that devil just wonít let me forget / In this life, I know what Iíve been / But here in Your arms, I know what I am / Iím forgiven / Iím forgiven / And I donít have to carry the weight of who Iíve been / ĎCause Iím forgiven // My mistakes are running through my mind / And I relive my days in the middle of the night / And I struggle with my pain, wrestle with my pride / Sometimes I feel alone, and I cry / When I donít fit in / And I donít feel like I belong anywhere / When I donít measure up to much in this life / Oh, Iím a treasure in the arms of Christ

Behind the Song:
ďForgivenĒ came from an instance when we were talking honestly as a band about feeling the wear and tear of our insecurities. At the end of the conversation we realized that no matter what we are or what we've done; in this world, to other people, or even to ourselves, what we truly are and will always be is "a treasure in the arms of Christ."

It's so hard to see past our weakness and failures sometimes, or rather the things WE think are weakness and failures. They can corner us...trick us into believing we can't be used effectively by God. But God's strength is perfected in our weakness (2nd Corinthians 12:9)...It's when he can use us most! The message we hope to convey in this song is that we'll always have weakness. We'll always make honest mistakes. It's part of being human. God's great promise though is that we can always run into his arms. We'll always be forgiven. - Sanctus Real
