Lyrics

I have served a full life sentence
As a prisoner of my past
As a victim of a victim of a victim
Seems my parents' parents' parents'
Left traps that held me fast
And they still catch me even when I think I've licked them
Well I have blamed them, I have fought them
But I've never understood
All they really did was did the best they could

Is there a way to rise above
If I look at them with love
Though I look at them full honest in the face
Can I make my peace at last
With the pieces of my past
And enfold them in forgiveness' embrace
And enfold them...
In forgiveness' embrace

I forgive my poor flawed parents
For the things they could not be
I forgive my valiant lovers
For not completing me
And the hardest thing of all, now
I forgive myself the sin
Of not being all I planned
And all I thought I should have been

But there's an alchemy in time
Transforms each grief and loss and scar
Into the precious stuff of who we are

And there's a way to rise above
If I look at them with love
Though I don't deny that harm has taken place
I can make my peace at last
With the pieces of my past
And enfold them in forgiveness' embrace

Some call it wisdom and some just call it grace

When we make our peace at last
With the pieces of my past
And enfold them in forgiveness' embrace
And enfold them...
I will enfold them...
Now I enfold them...
In forgiveness' embrace
