|Within Temptation singles chronology|
"Forgiven" is the fourth single from the Dutch symphonic metal/rock band Within Temptation's fourth album The Heart of Everything. It was released to promote their upcoming DVD, Black Symphony as well as being a single from the album. The song itself is a piano driven ballad with orchestral elements.
The video for "Forgiven" is similar to that of "Jillian (I'd Give My Heart)," which is made up of footage of The Silent Force Tour. "Forgiven" features highlights of Black Symphony, which is based on the fact that "Forgiven" is a promotional single for the concert DVD. As there is a radio edit of the song, the music video portrays only the edit rather than the full-length version.
