Forgive & Forget

Songfacts®:

  • 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."
