Forgive Myself
griff Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I gave my heart to the wrong somebody else
I gave my heart
I gave my heart

I'm a little exhausted (somebody else)
I've been torturing myself everyday
Over every single mistake I've made
But I just can't help it (somebody else)
I find myself doin' it anyway
'Cause I let them in, so surely I'm to blame

And I know, I know, it ain't right
And something's gotta change, yeah
Yeah, I know it's probably time that I just face that

I gave my heart to the wrong somebody else
And I need to forgive myself, oh
I gave my heart to the wrong somebody else
And I need to forgive myself
Oh, yeah, it's gonna be hard, trusting my feelings again
'Cause what if they mess up again?
Yeah, I'll beat myself up, times ten
I shouldn't, I know that
But when, I gave my heart to the wrong somebody else
I never forgave myself

And it's really exhausting (somebody else)
When they say that they don't have any regrets
'Cause I got a million weighing my chest
And, that's a lot of forgiveness (somebody else)
That I just ain't got around to yet
Giving myself any of that? No

Yeah, I know, I know, it ain't right
And something's gotta change yeah
Yeah, I know it's probably time that I just face that

I gave my heart to the wrong somebody else
And I need to forgive myself, oh
I gave my heart to the wrong somebody else
And I need to forgive myself
Oh, yeah, it's gonna be hard, trusting my feelings again (yeah)
'Cause what if they mess up again?
Yeah, I'll beat myself up, times ten
I shouldn't, I know that
But when, I gave my heart to the wrong somebody else
I never forgave myself

(I gave my heart to the wrong somebody else, yeah)
I need to forgive myself
I know that I need to, yeah (I gave my heart to the wrong-)
I know that I need to forgive myself (somebody else)
(I need to forgive myself) Oh

Oh, yeah, it's gonna be hard, trusting my feelings again
'Cause what if they mess up again?
Yeah, I'll beat myself up, times ten (woah!)
I shouldn't, I know that




But when, I gave my heart to the wrong somebody else
I never forgave myself
