“Please Forgive Me” by Bryan Adams
This is a song with a twist. Yes, coming from Bryan Adams it is, as expected, a love song. As such, as the title suggests he is imploring his significant other to forgive him. However, this is not because he did something wrong in their relationship. Rather, he feels as if his crime may be over-loving her. Indeed it is insinuated from the onset that they have been together for a while. Yet he still loves her as if their romance were fresh.
