Lyrics:

VERSE 1
IT'S NOT EASY TO PRESUME
WHILE PEACEFULLY IN ONE'S ROOM
THAT ACTS COMMITTED PAST AND PRESENT
WERE MEANT TO BE EVIL OR BASICALLY PLEASANT
WE MAKE MISTAKES ALONG THE WAY
NOT MEANT TO DISTURB ANOTHER'S DAY
AND THE ONLY WAY TO LET IT SET
IS TRULY TO FORGIVE AND FORGET

VERSE 2
FRIENDSHIPS FORGED ALONG THE YEARS
FREQUENTLY END IN TEARS
DESPITE THE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN SAID
ACTS PERPETRATED ARE NOW DEAD
BUT SOMETIMES WHEN THE SPIRITS CLASH
WE LOSE OUR KINDRED IN A FLASH
AND THE ONLY WAY TO LET IT SET
IS TRULY TO FORGIVE AND FORGET

BRIDGE
LOOKIN' FORWARD TO THE FUTURE
WE'RE GONNA BE
FORGETTIN' THE PAST

VERSE 3
IT TAKES A KICK RIGHT IN THE TEETH
TO FIND OUT WHAT'S UNDERNEATH
THERE'S A LIGHT INSIDE US ALL THE TIME
LET'S OPEN UP AND LET IT SHINE
WE'RE TOO SOON OLD AND TOO LATE WISE
BUT FINALLY WE REALISE
THAT THE ONLY WAY TO LET IT SET
IS TRULY TO FORGIVE AND FORGET

FLUGAL HORN SOLO (VERSE)

REPEAT BRIDGE

VERSE 4
THERE'S NO BETTER TIME TO CALL
FOR PEACE TO ONE AND ALL
THIS SIMPLE FACT JUST GOES TO PROVE
EVENTUALLY WE MUST REMOVE
THE BOUNDARIES OF OUR PREJUDICE
IF I'M ON THAT SIDE, YOU'RE ON THIS
AND THE ONLY WAY TO LET IT SET
IS TRULY TO FORGIVE AND FORGET
