Forgive & Forget
Alas, my love you do me wrong
To cast me off
I’ve loved you so long
Delighting in you
I was ready seven times before
Now I cannot take it anymore
Seventy-seven times impossible
And you hate and you hurt and you hate
Whoever strips you of your faith in them
Well I don’t want to wait and get it back again
Just let them squirm and writhe
No second chance tonight
Alas, my love you took so long
To bring me back your love
Residing in you
And you hate and you hate and you’re angry at the world
And you hate and you hate and you’re angry at the girl
And you hate and you hate and you’re angry at the man
Who let you down that day

‘Fading Away’ is the first radio release from Created Alive.
Accompanied by a single acoustic guitar, the lead vocal is heart-felt and powerful, and is backed by an echo of captivating harmonies.
This solemn soliloquy is about a lover struggling in an uncertain relationship, unsure whether to hold on or to walk away.
With deeply intimate and personal lyrics, emotional and heartbreakingly relatable, it’s intriguing and poignant; tragic, yet hopeful.
