De tekst gaat over een ik-persoon die door een bos loopt, zoekend naar een meisje. Deze wordt niet gevonden en er wordt gesuggereerd dat het meisje er zelfs nooit was ("The girl was never there") of dat de bezongen persoon in het bos is verdwaald ("Lost in a forest"). De sfeer van het nummer is erg duister en grimmig. Dit was kenmerkend voor de Wave-muziek. A Forest is een New Wave-klassieker geworden en staat vrijwel elk jaar in de Top 2000 van Radio 2..

Songtekst

Come closer and see
See into the trees
Find the girl
If you can
Come closer and see
See into the dark
Just follow your eyes
Just follow your eyes

I hear her voice
Calling my name
The sound is deep
In the dark
I hear her voice
And start to run
Into the trees
Into the trees

Into the trees

Suddenly I stop
But I know it's too late
I'm lost in a forest
All alone
The girl was never there
It's always the same
I'm running towards nothing
Again and again and again and again
