nathan is stupid | Reviewer: zach | 5/21/07
The song is about him, nathan, not some random boy... he is talking about how people have always run his life for him and how he would like to "see what might have been" if they hadn't. he is now a "bitter old man preparing to die regretfully" ("that old man it was me")

i like the unforgiven 2 more, but metallica is always good.
great song. | Reviewer: LaRue | 2/7/07
but I thought it is about someone who tries to be something there not, hence "never free, never me. . . . . . . never shine though in what i have shown." I thought it was more of a person trying to be something for other people. But that is my intrepertation.
METALLICA ROCKS!!! | Reviewer: kr2 | 3/2/06
the unforgiven may be a depressing song, but then again what else are drugged rockers going to write? i love metallica!!! :P
awesome | Reviewer: Nathan
very good guitar, the story of the song is sad, the first verse was sad, the second verse and sad. The song is about a boy who lives in calamity and when he is a young man, all the women he tried to go out with ran out on him. and he dies very lonely as an old man.
if you like drama and slow guitar, this is the song for you!
