Hi,

I've been looking everywhere for the lyrics to "Sweet Forgiveness", from Bonnie Raitt's album of the same name. Thanks to anyone who can help.

The song SWEET FORGIVENESS that Bonnie Raitt recorded was written by Daniel Moore. (Other people have written songs with the same title.) Here's a bit transcribed from a sound sample:

When will I learn to take you on my journey?
When will I see that you belong to me?
When will I learn to take you on my journey?
When will I see, yeah, that you belong with me?

This is my transcription from the Bonnie Raitt recording. I also listened to Daniel Moore's own version, on "The Giveaway" (2007) to verify a few words I was unsure of.


SWEET FORGIVENESS
Written by Daniel Moore
As sung by Bonnie Raitt on "Sweet Forgiveness" (1977)

When will I learn to take you on my journey?
When will I see, yeah, that you belong to me?
When will I learn to take you on my journey?
When will I see, yeah, that you belong with me?

Sweet forgiveness! How can you go my bail?
I never really knew that I needed you, but you were right there,
Understanding, yeah, how do you set my sail?
When will I learn to take you with me ev'rywhere?

When will I learn? (Sweet forgiveness) Sweeter than honey
Give me that sweet forgiveness, sweeter than wine

Did you ever get lost in a bundle of nerves?
Did you ever get lost in a jungle of your own words?
You hurt another, hurt a brother, you hurt a sister or a lover,
And then you know right then you got to just sit back and wait for the cure

Sweet forgiveness! How can you go my bail?
I never really knew that I needed you, but you were right there,
Understanding, yeah, how do you set my sail?
When will I learn to take you with me ev'rywhere?

When will I learn? (Sweet forgiveness) Sweeter than honey
Give me that sweet forgiveness, sweeter than wine

Give me that sweet forgiveness, sweeter than honey
Give me that sweet forgiveness, sweeter than wine

Give me sweet forgiveness, baby, sweeter than honey
Ooh, sweeter than wine....
