Liner Notes: 

This was written for the Facebook Song Skirmish group of which @AndyGetch and I are co-moderators. Today's prompt (set by @Jessica Szturmann) was "forgiveness". And so I got to write a quick song about a theme dear to my heart.

Lyrics: 

I rely on it
I can't live without it
My life's built on it
I will never doubt it

forgiveness
forgiveness

It is at the core
Of all I preach and teach now
My hope's built on it
I so need it and how

forgiveness
forgiveness

my forgiveness isn't much
just a little thing to do
but the forgiveness I represent
is a world-changer -- I believe this is true

forgiveness
forgiveness

I am not saying
That I'm better or that
Somehow I am great
Just that here's where I'm at

forgiveness
forgiveness
forgiveness
forgiveness



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Very nice. I must have a crack at the prompt, saw it just now. Nice simple to the point song, very enjoyable.

Your style that I remember from FAWM really carries over in your work! Cracking little skirmish. Thumbs up from me.

Loving the bluesy little chord progression you built this one off of. A little Elliott Smith-esque. Quality skirmish tune!

Of course, this is a great topic to write on and I love your take on it. Every line of your first verse is so profound as it is written, I think you could expand your song and use it as a pre-chorus. As a listener, it's just of those reminders I'd like to hear more than once.
