about

You've got to hear the powerful soaring chorus on this song!

The original version of this song (available now at iamdarkriver.com ), was inspired by a personal tragedy that lead to healing through forgiveness. HTWO's lyrics were so appropriate and inspiring that we had to release this version by Rocket Tangerine. We hope this song can encourage many of you. Enjoy!

lyrics

Verse 1:
I can’t believe that you’re gone it’s
Every single morning I wake with the dawn and
Pillow on my face, roll over and yawn and
I thought I caught a glimpse of you
It’s like I’m haunted
My life is on replay
I’m fastforwardin
Can we skip this scene?
God I’m imploring
Where’s the remote
Cause I just can’t control it
I wanna pause it
-STOP-
I can’t
Take much of this no more
If love is a battlefield
This is a cold war
It was all so clear
Now I’m not so sure
Tell me
Who’s knockin at my door
Lord
I just can’t take it
You know
My heart is breakin
My only choice is facin
What I’ve become
I need your grace
Cause I’m about done

Chorus:
So I'm thinking of days that are brighter
and I'm thinking of things that were meant to be
I can think of love and mercy, forgiving, forgetting,
so it's like you were never here

Verse 2:
Forgive and forget
Dismiss your silhouette
Erase you from my mind
That’s my mindset
And my mind’s set
Jesus can heal me
Bind my broken heart
And I’m startin to feel free
I never thought I’d see a day this bright
Your glory eclipses my darkest night
I feel the release on this page as I write
Cause You accept me in spite
I can
Take it if you continue to pour
Hit me with Your best shot
And I want more
I plug into You
Cause you’re my source
And everything in my life’s
Restored
Lord
I know I’ll make it
She’s gone
But my heart’s taken
Each painful memory’s fadin
I’ve shed my tears
Now it’s like she was never here

Chorus:
So I'm thinking of days that are brighter
and I'm thinking of things that were meant to be
I can think of love and mercy, forgiving, forgetting,
so it's like you were never here.

Bridge:
You ought to think about it twice before you hurt someone you said you love
You might find you were wrong but now it's to late the damage is done
But brighter days are coming with forgiving and forgetting
It's like you were never here

Chorus:
So I'm thinking of days that are brighter
and I'm thinking of things that were meant to be
I can think of love and mercy, forgiving, forgetting,
so it's like you were never here

So I'm thinking of days that are brighter
and I'm thinking of things that are better
and I'm think on things that will make me stronger
so I need to be further from you than I've ever been

So I'm thinking of days that are brighter
and I'm thinking of things that are better
I can think on things that will make me stronger
so I need to be closer to God than I've ever been
