When there is active bleeding The pain's not receeding I used to be Christian through and through And all along, I was taught to do Even in a day, forgive seventy times seven And that is the way to go to heaven But, when there's active bleeding That pain's not receeding Forgivesness to some people comes rather easy Because they prefer to breathe light and free Even still, when the wound is fresh These people may find it difficult to pass the test Because when there's active bleeding The pain's not receeding And when those wounds are sutured time and again They're gonna cringe from previous stabs recalling those bloodstains And since I'm an ardent propogator of love and forviveness I believe we must keep attempting; how else will you celebrate Christmas! But,when there is active bleeding The pain's not receeding Sure, forgiveness is important. But, maybe step out of the way If they keep backstabbing, maybe get far away I'm not saying forgiveness must cease Just suggesting, walk away from the drama tease You can be a well-wisher from a distance You don't have to provide exemplary assistance Sometimes, you need to give your wounds time to heal Especially if at the same site, it's being ruptured with the same deal Forgiveness is important; but, you can do it from afar You don't have to keep standing in front of the same speeding car As long as you know you did your very best You can put your conscience and the outcome to rest
