Within Temptation Forgiven Lyrics

Last updated: 10/11/2013 08:05:04 PM

Couldn't save you from the start
Loved you so it hurts my soul
Can you forgive me for trying again
Your silence makes me hold my breath
Time has passed you by

Oh, for so long I've tried to shield you from the world
Oh, you couldn't face the freedom on your own
Here I am left in silence

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done's forgiven
You'll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that's done's forgiven

I watched the clouds drifting away
Still the sun can't warm my face
I know it was destined to go wrong
You were looking for the great escape
To chase your demons away

Oh, for so long I've tried to shield you from the world
Oh, you couldn't face the freedom on your own
And here I am left in silence

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done's forgiven
You'll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that's done's forgiven

I've been so lost since you've gone
Why not me before you?
Why has fate deceived me?
Everything turned out so wrong
Why do you leave me in silence?

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done's forgiven
You'll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that's done's forgiven

"Forgiven" is the fourth single from the Dutch symphonic metal/rock band Within Temptation's fourth album The Heart of Everything. It was released to promote their upcoming DVD, Black Symphony as well as being a single off the album. The song itself is a piano driven ballad with orchestral elements.

The video for "Forgiven" is similar to that of "Jillian (I'd Give My Heart)," which is made up of footage of The Silent Force Tour. "Forgiven" features highlights of Black Symphony, which is based on the fact that "Forgiven" is a promotional single for the concert DVD. As there is a radio edit of the song, the music video portrays only the edit rather than the full-length version. From Wikipedia
