  1. Forgiveness

From the album Songs of Rabble and Roots

Dear Toni and Andy,

Whenever you're ready, you know where to find me.

Your sister,

Carolyn

Lyrics

Looking at some picture from a long time ago
Life back then was so simple don't ya know
A sister and a brother and baby makes three
there were 5 of us in our family tree

Holidays back then were so much fun
Vacations at the Cape in the August sun
Surrounded by family, surrounded by friends
Dad captured it all with his telephoto lens

Then we all grew up and everything changed
I'm not sure what happened but it sure is strange
You don't call me on the phone, or ask me what's new
If I didn't know better, I think you were through

So let's get together, I'll tell you what we'll do
You forgive me, I'll forgive you
Life's too short to be an angry old fool
So lets make up and be a family again

Well I don't quite know how we got to where were at
You said this, and I said that
How long you gonna hit me with that baseball bat
For something that happened long ago

I ask you what's wrong you both say “What?”
“We really, really love you” I hear your words but
All those pictures that I'm seeing on your facebook feed
you're doing family things together that don't include me

So let's get together, I'll tell you what we'll do
You forgive me, I'll forgive you
Life's too short to be an angry old fool
So lets make up and be a family again
