I Forgive You

Songfacts®:

  • With song titles like "You Love Me," "Standing in Front of You," "You Can't Win," as well as this song, the frequency of the word "you" in Stronger's track list cannot be ignored. Speaking to MTV News, Clarkson this does not mean they are directed at one particular person, who's done her wrong. "They're all different 'you's,' " she explained. "There's no common, like, it wasn't like one, I didn't have a bad breakup or anything, it wasn't like that. No I just think life is about relationships, so I always write about all these different ones going on in my life and I don't really have a filter. So it's usually very [straightforward]."
