"I Keep Forgettin'" as written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller....
I keep forgetting you don't love me no more
I keep forgetting you don't love me no more
I keep forgetting that you told me that you
Didn't want me around any more
But these stupid old feet
Just head for your street
Like they've done so many times before
And this stubborn old fist
On the end of my wrist
Keeps a knocking on your front door

I keep forgetting you don't love me no more
I keep forgetting you don't love me no more
I keep forgetting bout those heartbreaking nights
And those heartbreaking things
That you said
Though I know in my heart
We're drifting apart
I can't believe that our love is dead
Though it's plain as can be
That you're finished with me
I just can't get it through my head

I keep forgetting you don't love me no more
I keep forgetting you don't want me no more
I keep forgetting you don't want me no more

Though I know in my heart
We're drifting apart
I can't believe that our love is dead
Though it's plain as can be
That you're finished with me
I just can't get it through my head

I keep forgetting you don't love me no more
I keep forgetting you don't want me no more
I keep forgetting you don't want me no more
I keep forgetting you don't want me no more
I keep forgetting you don't love me no more

    General CommentThis is one of Bowie's covers on the album Tonight, besides the Beach Boys' 'God Only Knows.' This is pretty much the complete opposite of a pleasant love song. This man is stubborn, trying to get the girl back when he knows that she doesn't love him anymore, but there's something in the back of his mind saying 'I still have a chance. She still loves me.' But when he yet again attempts to get her back, he gets rejected. How lovely.
