I found an old friend

When I gave the forgiveness I said I’d never give
I found an old friend.
All the locks and chains fell away.
And my heart began to breathe again.

Once, when we were still children we said forever.
Then life happened and we fell apart.
Who knew darlin’ that one day what was lost could be found.
The world sings, bells ring and every beautiful thing laughs out loud.

When I gave the forgiveness I said I’d never give
I found an old friend.
All the locks and chains fell away
And my heart began to breathe again.

Now when I look at your faded blue eyes
All I want is to reach past your body, reach right to your soul.
I want to find a way to kiss you in that old rocking chair
And write a new story there.

When I gave the forgiveness I said I’d never give
I found an old friend.
All the locks and chains fell away
And my heart began to breathe again.
