"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.

Content[edit]

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.
