Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians — Forgiven lyrics

Way back when we were young
We're still the same here now under the sun
Basket full of Easter grass
A little boy runs across the path to find
Mercy in the hearts of souls
Who never had no mercy shown to them
Will you please forgive me
I want to be forgiven
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/edie-brickell-the-new-bohemians-forgiven-lyrics.html ]
A vacant engineer rides on a train
Of thought that will now take him home
And waving from the windows is the innocence
That has no place to go
A boomerang of birds flies high
Over your head and I look to the sky
Will you please forgive me
I want to be forgiven

Given another chance to show you I love
Another chance to show you I feel
Another chance to show you I love
Another chance to show you I feel
Here I am like I always was
Here I am like I'll always be
Here I am like I always was
Here I am like I'll always be
Forgiven
