About Forgive Me

"Forgive Me" is a song by British singer Leona Lewis featured on the North American version and on the international deluxe edition of her debut album Spirit (2008). It was released as the fourth single of the album in the United Kingdom on 3 November 2008. The song was written by Aliaune "Akon" Thiam, Claude Kelly and Giorgio Tuinfort, and produced by the former. Musically, "Forgive Me" is an R&B, dance-pop and soul track written in A minor. Its lyrics address a girl who has found a new love and asks her old love for forgiveness. The song received generally positive reviews from music critics, however some of them criticised Lewis's voice for being very similar those of Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey voice. Lewis has performed it on some television shows, such as GMTV and The National Lottery Live. The music video—inspired by Broadway musicals, including Carousel and West Side Story—was released in September 2008. It also features the Jabbawockeez dance crew. "Forgive Me" reached number five on the British and Irish charts, thus making it Lewis's fourth single to peak within the top ten in the UK. It peaked atop the Slovakia singles chart and reached the top ten in Italy and Sweden. Lewis performed the song during her tour The Labyrinth.

There's a first time for everything
Its definitely one of them nights
I knew when I looked in his eyes
That he was gonna be trouble for me
I never wanted to lie, I knew that my baby would cry
If he knew what we were doing
But if his love don't pass the test
I gotta get it from somewhere else
But I'm grown and I need my man
Hope he understands forgive me baby

I've gotta take a chance tonight
So I'm doing me, myself an
I Can't wait no more
Sitting all alone
Man I really hope
Hope you'll forgive me (oh oh)
Hope you'll forgive me (oh oh)
Hope you'll forgive me (oh oh)
I Can't wait no more
Man I really hope
Hope you'll forgive me

Bin along time since I
Did something good for myself
But why should I be put through hell
Well hes doing what he wanna do
Ive finally found somebody else
Who with me makes me wanna feel
Things that I've been missing so long
And his love always passed the test
But it's a shame I had to look somewhere else
Well I'm gone and I need a man
Forgive me baby

I've gotta take a chance tonight
So I'm doing me, myself an
I Can't wait no more
Sitting all alone
Man I really hope
Hope you'll forgive me (oh oh)
Hope you'll forgive me (oh oh)
Hope you'll forgive me (oh oh)
I Can't wait no more
Man I really hope
Hope you'll forgive me

Forgive me but I need to be loved to
Forgive me but I cant wait around for you
Forgive me if I found a man who understands
Just what I need
Forgive me but I need to be loved to
Forgive me but I cant wait around for you
Forgive me if I found a man who understands
Forgive me baby

I've gotta take a chance tonight
So I'm doing me, myself an

Sitting all alone
Man I really hope
Hope you'll forgive me (oh oh)
Hope you'll forgive me (oh oh)
Hope you'll forgive me (oh oh)
