"Almost Forgot Myself" as written by and Jimi/williams Goodwin....
So close, you waste it again,
I know, some how,
I lost myself,
Again,

Your making me high again,
I almost forgot myself again,
This was so high it kills me again,
Today.

So close, yet you rest again
Ah no, so high
Found ourselves, oh, oh

Then will be high, again
I almost forgot myself again
Its gets you so high, it kills again.

I almost forgot myself again,
I almost forgot myself again,
It eating me losing again,
Again, again.

    General Commenti don't know what they intended this song to mean, but to me it's about when i get high and sometimes i forget who i am.

    General CommentI like the little "ding" cymbal noise in the song. It sounds like a timer went off - like a timer on a stove. To me it means "ding" - he's fully "baked" (i.e. stoned) and feeling good. The lyrics read like he hasn't been stoned in a long time because he quit some time ago, but just fell off the wagon and got stoned again. However, he sounds unsure that this was the right thing to do.

    General Commentyeah i would definatly say this is about drugs.."You're wasted again"
    "It hits me so hard
    It kills me again "......all points in the way of drugs..... could be wrong though i spose.

    General CommentFunny, Elbow and Doves: uncanny resemblances
    Well, apart from the fact that they're both from Manchester, and it took them both 15 years or something to make big, they also have
    1. Forget Myself and Almost Forget Myself
    2. Satellite Towns mentioned in Black and White Town and Forget Myself (never heard them mentioned anywhere else.)
    I mean, how can you not love them both?

    General CommentIt may be about drugs and how they make you lose yourself - or maybe about an affair.
    Whatever, i love this song!

    General Commenti dunno, for me this song is definitely about matters of the heart. about trying to supress feelings you might have for someone.
    in the third and fourth verses its like he lets himself go for a moment, allows himself a glimmer of hope that there's a chance of happiness with this other person
    "I know, somehow...
    We'll find ourselves...
    I don't know, I don't know" (denying it)

    "Then we'll be high again
    I almost forgot myself there" (pushing it back down)

    but i think also he knows that the other person feels the same towards him -
    "It hits you so hard
    And kills again"

    on a personal note, for me this song sums up a situation i had a while ago, fianlly finding a great boyfriend, but then finding out that another fling actually liked me too. its about trying to ignore feelings towards the other guy

    General Commentcould really be falling back into old habits or routines, be it drugs or relationships or whatever. its about relapsing into the old ways and how he can see it happening right in front of him.

    for some reason it reminds me of Rear View Mirror by Grandaddy. although the songs dont sound alike at all...
