"Don't Forget" as written by and Martha Wainwright....
Summer comes and rain falls away
But the very next day it seems
The snow comes to stay

And you too will go just like the dog days do
I'll put on my hat, my gloves, my scarf
To keep the cold apart

But there are no hats, gloves, scarves for the heart
Just a cold wind which leaves its frosted mark

Don't forget that I will always love you
Just a reminder to help you pave your pathway
Summer comes, fall it cools
Winter it snow, spring it rains
And you go

But in my silly mind I've gotten married to you
You're across town, don't even have a clue
Or these images that in ten years
I'll run into you & fall right back inside of you

Don't forget that I will always love you
Just a reminder to help you pave your pathway
Fall it cools, winter it snows
Spring it rains, summer comes
And you go

So when will we meet next and where will it be
On a platform track in an old movie
Cause time moves in circles & can leave you anywhere

    it took a few years but I finally fully understand what those lines mean. she's left behind in one way but right back where they were years ago in another way. time moves forward but in your mind, sometimes you're back where you started from. memories fade but don't disappear.

    General CommentI always think of my ex when I play this song. I was in love with him. the only thing that really got me through the break up was the idea that maybe in ten years maybe then I'll have him.
    thanks martha.
    i appreciate it.

    General Comment'But in my silly mind I've gotten married to you' - this song is beautiful yet heartbreaking. The way she has imagined this life with him, and she knows he doesn't feel the same way. Built up this fantasy future in her mind, which can only lead to heartbreak and disappointment, yet she's not bitter, she still feels love for him as he moves on his way. A really good description of how it feels to be the person who has fallen in love when the other one hasn't.
