  • Sometimes I think I'm not that strong
    But there's a force that carries me on
    Sick of my small heart, made of steel
    Sick of the wounds that never heal (Never heal)

    'Cause I have lived my life in debt
    I've spent my days in deep regret
    Yeah, I've been living in the red
    Oh, 'cause I can't forgive and I can't forget
    Forget

    Forget, forget, forget, forget
    Ain't no time to regret
    Yeah, it's time to forget

    Ever since I can remember
    Life was like a tipping scale
    Like an abacus I played with
    Counting every win and fail

    'Cause I have lived my life in debt
    I've spent my days in deep regret
    Yeah, I've been living in the red
    But I wanna forgive and forget

    Forget, forget, forget, forget
    Ain't no time for regret
    Yeah, it's time to be letting go

    Oh baby, you know
    What I'm talking about
    Got nothing to lose and nothing to prove
    Oh baby, I'm bowing out
    I'm bowing out

    Yeah, I've been dancing with the devil
    I love that he pretends to care
    If I'll ever get to heaven
    When a million dollars gets you there
    Oh, all the time that I have wasted
    Chasing rabbits down a hole
    When I was born to be the tortoise
    I was born to walk alone

    Forget about it
    Forget about it
    Forget about it

    Forget, forget, forget, forget
    Ain't no time for regret

    I'm gonna leave the past behind
    I've had enough, I'm breaking through
    No pressing stop, erase, rewind
    That chain of thought that followed me

    I've put my money where my mouth is
    For the first time in my life
    I've made mistakes, but I believe that
    Everything was worth the fight
    'Cause in the end, the road is long
    But only 'cause it makes you strong
    It's filled with peaks and twists and turns
    Sometimes you have to learn to forget about it Writer/s: MARINA LAMBRINI DIAMANDIS
