Mason Jennings Lyrics: Forgiveness

from Century Spring


Sitting on a bench in an old time station
Waiting for a train to forgiveness
I've brought no baggage, I've come here alone
Looking for a way to forgiveness

All these broken pieces of arrows in my side
I took off and ran with them, I know now I can't hide, so
I'm looking out upon the darkness down the tracks
Looking for the light of forgiveness

Call it bad company, call it what you will
My heart just won't let you go
I love you even still
Sadness and death, they both come along
So I sing this song called forgiveness

All these broken families, people taking sides
Hardly even bothered me, I never even cried, so
I'm crying on a bench in an old time station
Betting all I've got on forgiveness
