Question about English (US)

two sentence from the song 'the power of love'
'Your voice is warm and tender
A love that I could not forsake'
why 'could' but not 'can' ?
does it mean that she couldn't forsake the love in the past but she can now?

Also I consistently see people using 'I got to' but they are not referring to things in the past.Is there some special use of past tense in English?
