"Forgive and Forget" as written by and Oscar/ross Mack....
I think I've waited long enough.
Our world was once forget-me-nots and now I wait another year.
I need you here. I think I've heard this once before, but it's not you walking through my door.
Don't bother it now, let sleepers lie.

Bygones have all gone by. Forgot what we fought for, hard as I might, I don't have the will to fight. Forgive and forget whatever was said because we're growing up by the hour. I never would let it go on like it did... all good things have endings.

    General CommentI think this song is about a love that the other person could not take anymore. Now that they have broken up and gone their seperate ways one wishes that the other would come back but not if it is like before, he wishes that they would forgive and forget.

    General CommentHe's still in love with the person he thought he knew. He realizes thought that people grow up and change, and sometimes it's better to just forget and forgive, than to go back and change things.....I think he's right. I hope you understand Brad

    General CommentWhen he says ..."I think ive waited long enough" hes showing that he knows that he would forgive and forget sooner or later but time would have to determine just when... i think thats awesome... its so true for me also... I know that after a while i will forgive and forget no matter what... even if the person really did something fucked up... i bet he or she didn't really mean to make me feel so bad.

    General CommentFor me this songs has so many meanings because of the line "All good things Have endings. " and that is so true but we always try to hang on to that and realize that we have to in a way forgive and forget.

    General Commentlulu, that is quite possibly the stupidest, least emo thing ever. In truth, nothing ever has a happy ending, cuz everything that makes people happy, ends
