Forget It

Forget It describes Jay Johnson's turbulent relationship with the music industry, one where there are high hopes and dreams on one side, but also disappointment, confusion, and feelings of being misled or strung along. There's a painful sense of expectations not being met - of believing promises that turn out empty, or words that "ring hollow." There seem to be significant power and privilege imbalances at play too. The singer feels they've had to struggle enormously and "fight the tides," while the object of their affection (a sustainable music career) has had an easier path where the "wind's been on your side." This makes it hard for them to truly understand the singer's perspective or hardships. The line about "the race" being in the other's hands suggests they hold most of the leverage in the relationship. Ultimately the singer comes to the hard realisation that this is not a reciprocal relationship built on genuine care and understanding. The other person "never meant it" and likely never will. The singer now knows the dreams they were sold were illusions. This leads to sadness, frustration and a sense of having lost themselves or sacrificed too much in the vain hopes of making it work. The plaintive line "How would you feel about that?" underscores their incredulity at how they've been treated. While poetic and emotive, the lyrics paint a sombre portrait of misaligned desires, imbalanced dynamics, and painful disillusionment in a relationship where one lover feels used and dismissed. The singer must now accept the hard truth and that "we can't go back" to what might have been.
