I’m still waiting for the news dad,
That she’s gone and never coming back.
I can’t go on because the strength I had is gone
And I find it hard to get out of bed

Oh yeah, don’t you know it’s true son,
You can never know someone
Even though we sleep together we’re alone
And I find it hard to get out of bed

And we operate but
I still feel alone
And I can’t complain
Cause she’s so beautiful
Yes we all have made mistakes

Even though we sleep together we’re alone
Yes we all have made mistakes
Even though we sleep together we’re alone
And I find it hard to get out of bed

    General CommentAfter you've listened to the "Forget What You Know" you automatically like songs like Give It Up and Empty Like The Ocean. Somehow this song needed a little more time to get in my system but after it got in it stayed there. I really like this song now, the way the entire song has been build up is just great

    General CommentI read it in the Revolution on Canvas book, hoping they'd make it into a song. And my wish came true. :)

    General Commentmarried someone because of looks, didn't ever really get to know her. he knows he made the mistake of judging a book by it's cover. now they're divorced, and he's distraught. i'm probably wrong. great song anyways.

    General CommentI never knew he said dad in it... but to me it seems about a girlfriend that he's with but can't seem to leave her because of ambiguous reasons... i never got the idea of divorce... too cliche...

    General CommentHa, ceekenpomp, you say that like a girlfriend that he can't leave for ambiguous reasons isn't cliche either.

    General CommentIt's definitely about his parent's divorce.
