Second Chances

I Will Forgive You

I forgive you because I love you. I can’t stop loving and I can’t tell my heart to hate you because you hurt me. That’s love. That’s how love supposed to be.

Sorry, You Don’t Get A Second Chance

Maybe the truth is that I want to give you that second chance — a small part of me longs to — but I can’t be that person anymore. Because people don’t change even when they promise to, and I can’t keep holding onto hope when all signs point to the cold, hard truth: you already hurt me once, and pretending that you won’t do it again is just me fooling myself.
