Bryan Adams - Please Forgive Me



Bryan Adams explained:


"We needed a song for the greatest hits album, which was entitled So Far So Good. Mutt Lange came up with the idea for the song and we wrote it while working in France in 1993. It was the first time we had recorded with a whole band in the studio, some of the musicians I'd never worked with before like David Paich on piano. Before this band session, we had recorded the album Waking Up The Neighbours instrument by instrument. It was good to be back with a band. It was one of the first songs I agreed to use a modulation in as I never liked modulations in songs unless you were modulating from verse to chorus like I did on 'One Night Love Affair.' I don't do the modulation in 'Please Forgive Me' when I sing it live."



Lyrics


Still feels like our first night together

Feels like the first kiss, it's gettin' better, baby

No one can better this...

Still holdin' on, you're still the one.

First time our eyes met, same feelin' I get

Only feels much stronger, wanna love you longer

You still turn the fire on...


So if you're feelin' lonely—don't

You're the only one I ever want.

I only wanna make it good

So if I love you 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 you 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, still gettin' closer, baby

Can't get close enough.

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, yeah!

I remember the nights, you know I still do.


So if you're feelin' lonely—don't

You're the only one I ever want.

I only wanna make it good

So if I love you 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 you like I do

Oh, believe me.

Every word I say is true.

Please forgive me

I can't stop loving you.


One thing I'm sure of is the way we make love.

And 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'...


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 you like I do.

Babe, believe me.

Every word I say is true.

Please forgive me if I can't stop loving you.

Never leave me

I don't know what I'd do.

Please forgive me

I can't stop loving you,

Can't stop loving you.
