"Forget Myself" as written by Arion Salazar and Stephan Jenkins....
Would you believe it
Those sapphire eyes
The brilliant girl with the famous thighs
Then the cameras click then we are stars
Laughing in the back of chauffered cars
Phone call rings and your voice is desire
Then winter moves into summer fires
I promised you what's ours is ours
Somewhere backstage with Sean and Lars

I go crazy when you walk in the room
I laugh at myself with the girl in bloom
The taste of sex couldn't be too soon
All afternoon then
LA parties in the phony lands
Phony grabs with the manicured hands
I always thought you were pretty like a whip
Should have watched my step
Cause I keep on forgetting myself
And I keep on forgetting myself
Who am I, we both don't know
Time ticks by, where did it go

You always knew
Where you were going to
So sweetly you said
Please come with you
The biggest fear running through my head
You said you loved you meant what you said
I was floating, did it go to my head
We always sleep with the dogs on the bed
LA parties and the vodka fizz
This is not my life or maybe it is
I keep on forgetting myself
And I keep on forgetting myself
Who am I, we both don't know
Time ticks by, where did it go
I made you doubt me
You're better off without me
Think I am looking over your shoulder
Cause there's someone younger and you're feeling older
You're crazy and you never faded
I don't want to be so complicated
See my life come undone
Watch it go and let the damage run
I'd change the song now if I could
In the slickness of your blood
I keep on forgetting myself
And I keep on forgetting myself
Whose that guy, I don't know
Where did you go

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship, where the woman plays the guy until she's tired of him and then lets him go. She manipulates him by telling him she loves him, and the guy believes her and lets it go to her head. The guy is so focused on pleasing her that he forget's himself and only thinks about her and pleasing her. He doesn't know who he is without her and in the last stanza when he is looking over her shoulder and she is with a younger guy, he is being dumped. She is moving on to someone else and there is nothing that the guy can do except watch the damage run. He wishes he could change it, but he can't, the girl has gotten the best of him. Now that they are over, he doesn't know who he is because he has been living a life that is not his own trying to please the girl for so long.

    General CommentYeah you said it Disco! If you are really looking for a good 3EB site go to 3eb.co.uk they have all kinds of info about the new album and some lyrics for the new songs. Anyway this song is pretty good! I've heard a softer version of it and a more heavy version of it and I'm not sure which I like better. I wonder which one they will put on the album.

    General CommentI think this song could be about how everything happened to fast "The camera flash & we are stars" is like a little bit describing 3eb life " LA parties in the phony lands". And as in most stories is also about a girl... a girl he is in love with, "I always thought you were pretty like a whip", "I go crazy when you walk in the room" . Probably they knew each other also because she was part of the artistic stuff "So sweetly you said "please come with me", and after waiting some time he realizes she loves him to "When you said you loved me you meant what you said ". Probably they started a relashonship in which neither her nor him knew who he really was. And as sometimes love is not enough, he has to give up on her, because he knows she will be better off without him,
    My favorite line is "This isn't my life... or maybe it is". Is like not having idea of who you are, and I bet that at some point of our lifes we had all experienced that.

    General CommentTo me this song is about his relationship with Charlize Theron and how he got caught up in the Hollywood dazzle which is the world that she clearly thrived in. Every so often he realised that he wasn't being true to himself and the life he was living was artificial and fake but his love for her was so great that he didn't really want to believe that. So he kept allowing himself to be caught up in that life that he was living. Eventually they realise that they're too different to be together and want different things so they split up. But still to this day he loves her and misses her.
