"For The Nights I Can't Remember" as written by Jacob William Hoggard, Christian Robert Crippin, Thomas Walter Macdonald, Dave Rosin, Greig Nori and David Robert Madison Genn....
I see it in the way you would do
When no one else could ever get through
Holdin' back 'till I come around
Time and time again you wait for me to come in
And did you really look my way?
'Cause no one could of seen this comin'
I would never let you down
If I was runnin' backwards in full time

I can and I will
And you'll see your hero come runnin'
Over and over tonight

And I do wanna love you
If you see me runnin' back
And I do wanna try
Because if fallin' for you girl is crazy
Then I'm going out of my mind
So hold back your tears this time

Me, I'm used to being tired and bloody
But you believed that I could be somebody
You put your world on hold for me
Gave away to follow failure through the fire
I need you to know I will
Believe me girl, I'm so tired of runnin'
I just wanna hold your hand
Stare at you like you've got everything I need

And I can so I will
And you'll see your hero come runnin'
Over and over tonight

And I do wanna love you
If you see me runnin' back
And I do wanna try
Because if fallin' for you girl is crazy
Then I'm going out of my mind
So hold back your tears this time

And what if I never said to you I was dynamite?
(Dynamite)
And what if I never told you I'm afraid to cry?
(I wanna cry)
What if I never let you down inside?
I'm sorry for the nights I can't remember
What if I never said to you I would try?

And I do wanna love you
If you see me runnin' back
And I do wanna try
Because if fallin' for you girl is crazy
Then I'm going out of my mind
So hold back your tears this time

Yeah,
And I do wanna love you
(I wanna love you)
And I do wanna try
(I wanna try)
Because if falling for you girl is crazy
Then I'm going out of my mind
So hold back your tears this time, yeah
So hold back your tears this time.

    General Commentthis song is Jacob saying sorry to his wife, Tammy, for being away so much while he was pursuing his musical dream.

    I'm sorry for the nights I can't remember.

    Jacob's saying that he's sorry for the nights he wasn't there with Tammy to experience with her, therefore he can't remember those nights as he was not there.

    It's pretty much an oath from Jacob to Tammy saying how much he loves her, and that he'll be there for her now, and always. very cute if you ask me :)! haha go hedley love the band! and this song !!

    My Interpretationok, i can actually write an interpretation that hasn't been mentioned before. i see this song quite different than the comments i read.
    i have a daughter named Alex who just turned 5. i havn't always been there as a father, in fact wasn't even living with her mother when she was born. i love her dearly. it's m greatest fear that the mistakes i made years ago, will affect and affected her in an adverse way. (of course i can hear the lyrics where the writer professess his love, but this is an interpretation right?)
    it gives me hope, that she can still see the good in me, and that she saw i was imperfect and struggled in those years, yet she still sees the love i feel unconditionally for her. i know it will never be easy for us....after all i am a dad and she is a beautiful girl just sprinting towards being a teenager. geez, hurts even to say it. but i pray one day that she will say to me that she loves me, and that, no matter what, she knows i always will do the absolute best i can for her.

    General Comment**Correct lyrics**

    I see it in the way you would do
    When no one else could ever get through
    Holding back till I come around
    Time and time again you for me to come in
    And did you really look my way?
    Cause no one could have seen this coming
    I would never let you down
    If I was running backwards in full time

    So I can and I will
    And You'll see
    Your hero come running
    Over and over tonight.

    And I do wanna love you
    And I do wanna try
    Cause if falling for you girl is crazy
    Then I'm going out of my mind
    So hold back your tears this time.

    Me, I'm use to being tired and bloody
    But you belived that I could be somebody
    You put your world on hold for me
    Gave away to follow failure through the fire
    I need you to know I will
    Believe me girl I'm so tired of running
    I just wanna hold your hand
    Stare at you like you've got everything I need

    And I can so I will
    and you'll see
    Your hero come running
    Over and over tonight

    And I do wanna love you
    And I do wanna try
    Cause if falling for you girl is crazy
    Then I'm going out of my mind
    So hold back your tears this time.

    What if I never said to you I was dynamite?
    What if I never told you I'm afraid to cry>
    What if I never let you down and said
    I'm sorry for the nights I can't remember?
    What if I never said to you I would try?

    And I do wanna love you
    And I do wanna try
    Cause if falling for you girl is crazy
    Then I'm going out of my mind
    So hold back your tears this time.

    And I do wanna love you
    And I do wanna try
    Cause if falling for you girl is crazy
    Then I'm going out of my mind
    So hold back your tears this time.

    General Commenti wasnt really looking at it as the nights he cant remember being the nights he didnt spend with her...i thought he meant like im sorry for anything i might have done while i was on the road/drunk whatever and...the nights i cant remember...he might have been with another girl? i guess thats just my take on it

    General CommentIt is a very nice song. I had no idea that Jacob was married, let alone for almost two years.

    My friend met him on an airplane. Lucky.

    General CommentI think of a much different meaning (but only because my friend, a guy, sent it to me. I'm not sure if he meant this song for me, but I'll say how I interpret it.)

    Me, I'm use to being tired and bloody
    But you believed that I could be somebody
    You put your world on hold for me
    Gave away to follow failure through the fire

    My friend isn't doing so well. He's at a hard time in his life. And no one else will listen to him. I'm the only one who will.

    The rest of the song kind of follows that pattern. It just means something to me, and I wonder why he sent it to me, if the reason was just because it was a good song...
