    U THRU a rock
    and hid ur hand
    left me there
    alone to stand

    i replayed the tape
    bit by bit
    and tried to make
    sense out of it

    what did i do
    to make u lash out
    automatic blame
    is what i gave myself

    i finally figured out
    the problem isn't me
    its your need to control
    and your insecurity

    i finally figured out
    that u like to show off
    no matter who it hurts
    or how much it cost

    then i made a choice
    to stop blaming my heart
    for loving someone
    who's confused by far

    and to stop playing
    the tapes of that day
    u asked me to take
    my love away

    i found a strategy
    that releases ur hold
    and will keep my soul
    from tuning ice cold

    instead of carrying
    u around each day
    209 pounds is
    just to much weight

    i decided on forgivness
    let me tell u what it do
    it takes away all control
    that i gave to you

    it takes away the rights
    that u did not earn
    and the pain u caused me
    to no longer burn

    it gives me a choice
    to throw away the tapes
    those harsh reminders
    that just took up space

    most of all it gives courage
    to laugh in your midst
    cause i have a secret
    that freed me ......
    forgiveness.

    I am liking
    how your words
    make a beat
    that giving release
    in your flow
    setting it free
    with (forgiveness)
    strenght and power
    much love
    Peace
