Reckless Forgiver

The band Jars of Clay sings about a “Reckless Forgiver” (listen to the song here) on their album Inland. I leave it to your imagination as to who it is that truly forgives recklessly. I may not be fully capable of reckless forgiveness but I certainly could be more generous with my forgiveness.

Loneliness, loneliness, it won't last forever
Happiness, happiness, wait in line

Every time I look in the mirror
I'm in the shadow of doubt
Maybe I'm as lost as the next guy
Who just has to find, just have to find out

All I want is peace like a river
Long life of sanity, love that won't leave too soon
Someone to pull out the splinters
A reckless forgiver
You know I'm talking to you

I made a mess, made a mess
Of the heart I borrowed
So get undressed, get undressed
Laugh tomorrow

Every time I look in the mirror
I'm in the shadow of doubt
Maybe I'm as lost as the next guy
Just have to find

All I want is peace like a river
Long life of sanity, love that won't leave too soon
Someone to pull out the splinters
A reckless forgiver
You know I'm talking to you
I leave it all for you

All I want is peace like a river
Long life of sanity, love that won't leave too soon
Someone to pull out the splinters
A reckless forgiver
You know I'm talking to you

I want peace like a river
Long life of sanity, love that won't leave too soon
Someone to pull out the splinters
A reckless forgiver
You know I'm talking to you

I leave it all for you
You know I'm talking to you

I leave it all for you
All for you
Yeah, Yeah
I leave it all for you
