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 young we said forever like we meant it.
Then life happened and we fell apart like young lovers often do.
I wish I knew then what was lost, could be found.
Today my world sings, bells ring, and every beautiful thing laughs out loud.

Because when I gave the forgiveness I said I’d never give
I found my 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, right to your soul.
I want to kiss you in that old rocking chair
And write a new story there.

So there is no forgiveness to give
There is just you and me, old friends.
The locks and chains are put away
And my heart breathes again.
