"Forget and Follow" as written by Matthew Morrison Morgan and Jose Antonio Villanueva....
“You better not speak,”

That’s what I kept telling myself.

“You’re weak,

Just keep

All apologies shelved.”

I wish I would have been the bigger man

When I had the chance

But I took my time,

Only to find

My grudge

Far too much to hold

I wish somebody would’ve told me,

“Sometimes, letting go ain’t a bad thing.”

I’ve never heard of holding on setting anyone free.

Everybody knows,

There’s still hope, so,

Keep your head up,

Enough.

Times get tough.

But it shouldn’t take a tragedy

To inspire me to speak.

You are not a stranger

And you’re not at fault.

I was a coward who just couldn’t find a cause,

Just know that you belong.

And I guess that it’s a good thing

You’re not like me

You’re the victim

I’m the guilty

I wish I would’ve been the bigger man

Cause now I can’t

Take back all the crass remarks that I chose to make

But sometimes, letting go ain’t a bad thing

I’ve never heard of holding on setting anyone free

Keep your head up,

Enough.

Times get tough.

But it shouldn’t take a tragedy

To inspire me to speak.

You are not a stranger

And you’re not at fault.

I was a coward who just couldn’t find a cause,

Just know that you belong.

I was a statue with a pulse,

A machine with bones, instead of bolts.

“Forget and follow.

Ignore tomorrow.”

How could I call myself a man?

An, empty, self indulgent mannequin,

Who lost control.

And everybody knows

Keep your head up,

Enough.

Times get tough.

But it shouldn’t take a tragedy

To inspire me to speak.

You are not a stranger

And you’re not at fault.

I was a coward who just couldn’t find a cause,

Just know that you belong.

Sometimes, letting go comes with ease

I’ve never heard of holding on solving anything

(You are not a stranger).

    Song MeaningI feel like he lost someone close to him or commited a crime when he's in court to testify against himself that he didnt mean to hurt anyone when he says “Sometimes, letting go ain’t a bad thing."
    and-
    And I guess that it’s a good thing
    You’re not like me
    You’re the victim
    I’m the guilty
    That shows that he still wants the other person to know they belong in this world and he thinks that since hes never said sorry or talked before that the other person shouldnt suffer thinking that he doesnt care.
    Just to forgive and move on,an inspirational song.
