The Perfect Revenge 3:08 (kevin faherty)
Kevin has a whole collection of great songs beyond Singer/Songwriter Heaven. This is just one of them. Forgiveness is...

lyrics

You come to me in anger, your weapon is your tongue
You don't see the danger in this stranger you've become
You're justified with reasons, all on prides behalf
Your heart shook the hand of treason and signed a solemn pact

CHORUS:
With a stone for a stone, and an eye for an eye
That's a rocky road to travel down so blind
Why not make a point no armor can defend
At a time like this, forgiveness is, the perfect revenge

Don't deny this rage, that won't help get rid of it
AIm and fire away, I can take that hit
But don't hold forgiveness hostage
Release that prisoner and you'll find
Best to free someone who's crossed you than ransom your peace of mind

CHORUS:
With a stone for a stone, and an eye for an eye
That's a rocky road to travel down so blind
Why not make a point no armor can defend
At a time like this, forgiveness is, the perfect revenge

BRIDGE:
The path of least resistance starts outside your door
If you unlock what's innocent, if you're willing to see more

CHORUS:
With a stone for a stone, and an eye for an eye
That's a rocky road to travel down so blind
Why not make a point no armor can defend
At a time like this, forgiveness is, the perfect revenge
