Forgive Me Lyrics
Jump to:
There's a first time for everything
It's definitely one of them nights
I knew when I looked in his eyes
That he was gonna be trouble for me
I never wanted to lie
I knew that my baby would cry
If he knew what we were doing
But if his love don't pass the test
I gotta get it from somewhere else
When I'm gone and I need a man
Hope he understands
Forgive me baby

I gotta take a chance tonight
So I'm doing me, myself and I
Can wait no more
Sitting all alone
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
I can wait no more
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me

Been a long time since I
Did something good for myself
But why should I be put through hell?
He's doing what he wanna do
I finally found somebody else
Who really wants to make me feel
Things that I've been missing so long
And his love always passed the test
It's a shame I had to look somewhere else
When I'm gone and I need a man
I just hope that he understands
Forgive me baby

I gotta take a chance tonight
So I'm doing me, myself and I
Can wait no more
Sitting all alone
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
I can wait no more
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me

Forgive me but I need to be loved too
Forgive me but I can't wait around for you
Forgive me if I found a man
Who understands just what I need
Forgive me but I need to be loved too
Forgive me if I can't wait around for you
Forgive me if I found a man who understands
Forgive me baby


I gotta take a chance tonight
So I'm doing me, myself and I
Can wait no more
Sitting all alone
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
I can wait no more
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me

I gotta take a chance tonight
So I'm doing me, myself and I
Can wait no more
Sitting all alone
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me
