"If It's Too Hard To Forgive" is a song from "The Parents," sung by Gumball. Although it appears to be about the long-standing rift in the relationship between Nicole and her parents, Daniel and Mary, Gumball later admits the song is really about the years of Christmas presents Daniel and Mary owe their grandchildren. The music was composed by Xav Clarke.[1]


Gumball: Ten thousand reasons to give up.
Too many words that piled up.

Mary: [Spoken] I think we should go.

Gumball: But you refused to try and mend,
your broken past before the end.

Your heart's too hard to understand,
that sands of time slipped through your hands.
And no excuses can erase,
the scars of time left on your face.

If it's too hard to forgive,
then just give.
Let go of the weight that won't let you live.

Why keep playing this sad game,
of who should really take the blame.
The memories will fade away.
They're growing further every day.

You want the stream to change its course,
before it floods you with remorse.
You only need to hit the brakes,
to free yourself of your mistakes.

If it's too hard to forgive,
then just give.
Let go of the weight that won't let you live.

Mary: [Spoken] Nicole, I—

Nicole: [Spoken] Look, I don't wanna hear your excuses... I just want you guys back.


  • An instrumental version of the song plays during the title card of "The Parents."
  • The song resembles many slow songs from the 1990s and 2000s such as "Fade Into You," "Breathe (2 AM)," etc.
