Ben Haenow penned this confessional anthem with his brother Alex Haenow. He explained the meaning behind this tale of remorse and regret.
"On the first look, 'Forgive & Forget' is about second chances; ruining a relationship because of your own issues and problems and not realizing until it's too late.
But not just relationships, it's a song about being caught up in something so bad that you are almost blind to how you are acting in search of something you think you need/want and blind to those who love and know you best. Then the realization that everything you actually needed was there all along."
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
