And I forget my first love, like you forget a daydream
Frank forgot his first love, and that could be why he doesn’t know what love is. Also day dreams, or our subconscious thoughts, can be forgotten very easily. This whole song Frank has pondered the difference in a dream, and heaven, and is now speaking of how easy it is to forget a dream. Somebody is on that Inception shit.
Taking into consideration that he recently exposed his sexuality in the open, this line may very well imply that, while in heaven, he forgot his first love (a male) due to the fact that homosexuality is seen to be incompatible with most religions. Thus, when in heaven, he is purified as his homosexuality, the “sin” he has been plagued by on Earth, is forgotten.
