I’ve been having a hard time coming up with our first dance song. Today, I heard the song Please Forgive Me by Bryan Adams, and it sounds really sweet! BUT..is it a love song? or is it about being broken up? lol…I can’t figure it out. Thanks!
It still feels like our first night together
Feels like the first kiss and
It’s gettin’ better baby
No one can better this
I’m still hold on and you’re still the one
The first time our eyes met it’s the same feelin’ I get
Only feels much stronger and I wanna love ya longer
You still turn the fire on
So If you’re feelin’ lonely.. don’t
You’re the only one I’d ever want
I only wanna make it good
So if I love ya a little more than I should
Please forgive me I know not what I do
Please forgive me I can’t stop lovin’ you
Don’t deny me
This pain I’m going through
Please forgive me
If I need ya like I do
Please believe me
Every word I say is true
Please forgive me I can’t stop loving you
Still feels like our best times are together
Feels like the first touch
We’re still gettin’ closer baby
Can’t get close enough I’m still holdin’ on
You’re still number one I remember the smell of your skin
I remember everything
I remember all your moves
I remember you
I remember the nights ya know I still do
One thing I’m sure of
Is the way we make love
And the one thing I depend on
Is for us to stay strong
With every word and every breath I’m prayin’
That’s why I’m sayin’…

This is such a great song! I think this song could be taken in two very different ways! I personally think this song is about making mistakes & regretting it. It sounds like he loved & lost someone, (he speaks in past tense) “I remember…” but he wants her back. “…don’t deny me, of this pain I’m going through. Please forgive me”.
However, it could be that he’s apologizing for loving her soooo much, as though his love is so intense & overwhelming?
To each their own. Thats the great thing about music, you can interpret it to how you see fit. If you love it, go for it. This is a very emotional song either way you look at it! It’s a love song through & through.

That’s exactly what I was thinking. Those are the 2 places where I’m torn!

Well the line (and title) “Please forgive me” over & over again makes me think its a song of regret of love lost!!
Bryan Adams doesn’t have a ton of CLEAR love songs hehe… “(Everything I do) I do it for you” is kinda iffy too! Sheesh

The more I look at it-it sounds like they are still together. I think it’s more like reassuring her that she’s the only one…and please forgive me for loving you so much. I think I might use it. 🙂

My first dance song is also by Bryan Adams – “Everything I do, I do it for you.” You’re welcome to borrow it if you need to. 🙂

I’m not sure either… but I’m kind of in the ‘if you have to ask, it’s a bad idea’ camp, if that makes sense.
That is to say, whether or not the song was intended to be about breaking up, the fact that you think it MIGHT be is enough that someone else MIGHT think so too. And do you really want anyone thinking that during your first dance?
