What is it that you cannot forgive?
That hit that hurt you
From those hands that once caressed you
Look, marriage is like friendship
Like a childhood friendship that stretches through the years
It mustn’t be like teenage romance that is intense just in the moment
But its like brotherhood, sisterhood
Its nothing like the world says it is
Its not like the movies, books
So what is that you cannot forgive?
