THE BALL AND CHAIN

It is written, The Truth shall set you free
I believe this holds true for both you and me
Yet there's something more vital we tend to ignore
Forgiveness is key to unlock the door
A door in your heart you've disdainfully sealed
where the love for a brother you've wantonly sealed

So let go the resentment
Come in from the rain
Let forgiveness remove
The Ball And Chain

So you say you've been hurt and you will not forgive
And you'll never forget for as long as you live
And you won't give an inch, nor will you believe
The one asking forgiveness, who lied and decieved
But resentment will fester and turn to despise
And you'll become someone else, unrecognized

So let go the resentment
Come in from the rain
Let forgiveness remove
The Ball And Chain
