"Don't Forget" as written by Nicholas Jonas, Joseph Jonas, Paul Jonas Ii and Demi Lovato. While Demi's mom believes it's about her relationship with her dad, Demi says it's about a breakup....
Did you forget
That I was even alive
Did you forget
Everything we ever had
Did you forget
Did you forget
'Bout me

Did you regret
Ever standing by my side
Did you forget
What we were feeling inside
Now I'm left to forget
About us

But somewhere we went wrong
We were once so strong
Our love is like a song
You can't forget it

So now I guess
This is where we have to stand
Did you regret
Ever holding my hand
Never again
Please don't forget
Don't forget

We had it all
We were just about to fall
Even more in love
Than we were before
I won't forget
I won't forget
About us

But somewhere we went wrong
We were once so strong
Our love is like a song
You can't forget it

But somewhere we went wrong
We were once so strong
Our love is like a song
You can't forget it

At all

And at last
All the pictures have been burned
And all the past
Is just a lesson that we've learned
I won't forget
Please don't forget about us

But somewhere we went wrong
Our love is like a song
But you won't sing along
You've forgotten
About us
Don't forget

    General Commenti think it's obvious what it's about,
    what i think i'm noticing though,
    is the 5 stages of grief...

    Denial:
    "you can't forget it"
    at the beginning it's like she's can't believe he doesn't care.

    Bargaining:
    "we were once so strong,
    our love it like a song."
    it's as though she's trying to explain why he can't leave her.

    Depression:
    "we had it all, we were just about to fall even more in love"
    everything they were is gone, who they were as "us" is dead.

    Anger:
    the song guitar comes in and suddenly she's telling him,
    "you can't forget it AT ALL"
    she won't allow it

    Acceptance:
    "and at last, all the picture have been burned,
    and all the past is just a lesson that we've learned"
    she understands, it's really over
    "you won't sing along..."

    now she's left,
    to forget him.

    maybe i'm forcing it,
    but i think it's beautiful how they're incorporated,
    it makes the song more effectual.

    great voice.
    excellent song.
    you can see why it's the title track.

    General CommentAt first, I didn't really like this song, but now, I'm addicted to it.

    It's just a song about feeling broken.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs on her album along with Get Back, On the Line, Two Worlds Collide, and Trainwreck. Everone can relater to this song whether or not you are a girl or a boy. She is the best lyricist that Disney has got right now in my opinion.

    MemoryMy friend kept urging me to listen to this song, and at first I was like "No way, I don't really listen to Demi," but then I finally listened to it at her house and I cried, which made her cry too, so I can say that my first time listening to this song, I has a cry-fest.

    It's a really beautiful song and it holds alot of meaning to anyone that relates to it.

    I love this song sooo much!

    General Commenther best song.
    hands down.

    and to hear her sing it live.
    is heartbreaking.
    hopefully she doesn't loose that emotion after performing it too many times.
