One of the most gifted songwriter
Almost crying now!- Even though I know better!- All of us have our moments!
OOOOMMMMGGGG ! - Love this song!
Heart of the matter even if you don't care it's about forgiveness
Tenderness ��
Laying cross from my husband whom I love but hasn't forgive for all we've been/still going through. This song is just what I needed to hear.
Just when we think we can't live without someone, suddenly we can.

This is an absolutely beautiful song. I, like many others, have lived the words and India Arie's version brought me to tears. I LOVE this song!
beautiful words, no matter who sings it! Love this song!
I am living this right now I keep breaking up with this man that is clearly no good for me but the thought of him being with someone else and it working hurts because it didnt work with me and I sacraficed alot. Life does go on and I am trying to get over the eating me up inside part but I forgive him even if he doesnt love me anymore. I love this song it is so perfect.

OH THE WORDS ARE AMAZING!! TOUCHES MY HEART EVERY TIME I HEAR IT...THANK YOU INDIA :)
I'm amazed how I can connect the words to my actual life story with my marriage of 25 years. I know he still loves me but his pride won't allow him to act on what's truely inside of him. He carries so much anger that it's hard for him to move forward with someone new. If only he would forgive me as I have forgiven him. Jose, let go of the past so you can set yourself free. I wish you all the best always and you'll always be the love of my life - It will always be - MyGString4u & Joeshmoe4u
This song is so amazing!! She is a musical genius... there is such emotion in this song. It's like she's sitting right in front of you telling her life story.
