"For the Nights I Can't Remember" is the second single by Hedley from their second album, Famous Last Words/Never Too Late. It reached number 6 on the Canadian Hot 100.


This song is Jacob saying sorry to his wife, Tammy, for being away so much while he was pursuing his musical dream. "I'm sorry for the nights I can't remember." Jacob's saying that he's sorry for the nights he wasn't there with Tammy to experience with her, therefore he can't remember those nights as he was not there. It is about a man who is sorry for doing wrong things.

Music video[edit]

The video starts off with a battered Jacob Hoggard getting pictured for a mug shot. It goes to his girlfriend who waits patiently for him, it cuts to him getting involved with an alley punk. The band is playing in a club being accompanied by back-up singers, with his girlfriend arriving to see him. One scene shows the girl looking at a letter from Jacob with the chorus written in; the first line in the chorus is then shown on a music sheet where Jacob performs on piano.[1][original research?]

The song was originally written by Greig Nori, from Treble Charger.
