Rita Wilson longs for her lover in emotional new music video for her song “Forgiving Me Forgiving You.” In the black-and-white video — which the actress is sharing exclusively with Us Weekly first — she stuns in a long lace gown while reminiscing about a relationship.
“Sitting on the edge of what I don’t know / There’s a line in the sand / Do I stay? Do I go? / Nobody here to clean up our mess / Where we end up is anyone’s guess,” sings Wilson, who is married to Tom Hanks. “Too much to lose / This is not who we are baby, I miss us / Can we call a truce?”
The track is off Wilson’s self-titled second studio album, Rita Wilson.
While chatting with Us Weekly’s Entertainment Director Ian Drew, Wilson revealed that she set out to create music that can resonate with listeners.
“I love telling stories,” Wilson told Us of her work. “I wanted to make sure everything was — even though there are songs like ballads and up-tempos and all of that — that’s really who I am. That’s my personality. Like, I’m equally the woman in ‘Girls Night In’ as I am the person in ‘Forgiving Me Forgiving You’ or in ‘Along for the Ride.’ So it’s, I really just set out to hopefully tell a story that might be recognized by others and have them feel like, ‘Oh, I know what that feels like.’”
In a blog posted to her website, she expanded on what inspired her new album.
“At one point in the writing process, I realized that there was a theme emerging from the songs that had to do with different levels of being vulnerable, or weak, or strong, or courageous,” the Girls actress shared. “It seemed that there was something going on there and I tried to not get in the way and see what would come through.”
