Forget

YouTube | Spotify | iTunes

A Froget Marina and the Diamonds Froot albumának 5. dala. A szám az album 4. kislemezeként jelent meg 2015. március 3-án, és az 5. Froot of the month. Gyümölcsként egy almát kapott.

Marina a dalt rendkívül másnaposan írta meg a BRIT Awards afterparty utáni napon. Tartalmilag a dal arról szól, hogy az egész életét egy nagyobb perspektívából szemléli. A Forgetet Marina az egyik kedvenc dalaként említette meg a Frootról.

A Forget videoklipjét 2015. február 25-én forgatták, és március 4-én jelent meg.

“Forget”

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 those wounds that 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 for 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

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 free
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
