Analysis of I need to forget



I NEED TO FORGET

I need to forget what's gone, starting today
as for there is a new life beginning this day
must appreciate what's good that still remains
and let go of what has given me great pains
to look fore to what's coming next, my friend
I know now this is not going to be my life's end
