Verse

Em InB my silence I would lCove to forget G Em But Brestitution hasn't cCome quite yet G D And with one accord I keep moving forth Em I stretch my heart to healC5 some more

Chorus

G It used to be all EmI wanted to leC5arn G Was wisdom trust and truth G But now all I really waEmnt to learn C5 G Is forgiveness for you then guitar 2( or organ) comes in again with almost the same thing as riff 1

Riff 2

*(Not sure about octave before repeat)*

Verse

Em As my seasons cBhange I've now grown Cto know G Em When one's hearBt creates, one's soul doesn'tC owe G D So I wash away stains of yesterday Em Then tempt my heart with loC5ve's display

C

Guitar interlude (couldn't quite call this a solo!) It sounds approximately right to me
                                                                (again, there's that
                                                                famous repeat sign)

*listen for the muted slashes between each chord* DRUM BEAT (4 Bars) ...I think so?
                Finger-pick all this part                (Oh,come on! You must                                                                   get the idea by now!)

*play last chord very gently* Chorus w/acoustic guitar (no break with muting) Rest of band kicks-in still with chorus (break with muting) Play chorus chords (no vocals or break w/ muting) 3 times Well, I did as good as I could... This truly is a great song. But I was disappointed that, like the other songs on "Disciplined Breakdown", there are no real solos. Ross Childress is an extremely talented guitarist, Why don't they let him solo? It would make the great tunes even better. P.S - Comments, Questions, improvements; welcome and appreciated! "Forgiveness" by Collective Soul as heard on the album "DISCIPLINED BREAKDOWN" Words written by Ed Roland and music by Collective Soul This is the first song I've tabbed for OLGA so please, bear with me. Any comments, questions or corrections would greatly be appreciated. So E-Mail me if you want to!
