lyrics

History Repeats

Forget
A memory, sweet and gall.
Forgive,
And grace will cheat us all.
Return,
If you retreat to me,
Relive,
History repeats.

Beneath, behind, between,
In every room, you're here but can't be seen
Like music no one hears
In laundromats, in clockwork restless gears.
A drink from Lethe's stream
Might make me thirst for you in desert dreams,
But, in the light of day,
An illusion's black allure fades grey.

Long love comes from short memory,
And beliefs make myth true.
But I can't deny reality,
So I'll forget you.

With every shade pulled down,
The scratched records spin webs of silken sound.
My photo album’s clean;
Your face cut out of every scene.

Long love comes from short memory,
And beliefs make myth true.
But I won't ignore reality,
So I will…

Forget
A memory, sweet and gall.
Forgive,
And grace will cheat us all.
Return,
If you retreat, in time,
Relive,
History repeats the crime.

Forget
The facts I can't deny.
Forgive
Myself; identify.
Return.
Can't take my blame from me.
Relive.
It is my name.
