“Hard to Forget” by Sam Hunt

On “Hard to Forget”, Sam Hunt portrays the role of the individual who is having a difficult time getting over his ex-girlfriend. The implication is that they broke up recently,  and to make a long story short, everywhere he goes he tends to see something which reminds him of her. However, in some cases, such as ‘seeing her face in the clouds’, it is clearly a figment of his imagination. Moreover his consumption of alcohol can be said to be the secondary theme of this track. As such it has been concluded that the reason he is finding this lady “hard to forget” is because he lacks the ability to move on from their relationship.
