"I Don't Remember" as written by Jonathan Robert Coghill, John Andrew Collins, Bernard Joseph Fanning, Ian David Haug and Darren Stuart Middleton....
Tonight my heart well it broke like glass
I made a mistake that I'll never surpass
I'm floating in space unattached to the world
I cast off the memory of the spell of that girl
Whatever I get I guess its what I deserve

I don't remember
Just what made it so hard before
I know you needed someone to take the fall
I know you needed someone to blame it on

I smashed the mirror just to look what's behind
Picked through the pieces just to see what I'd find
I found my heart and it broke like glass
I made that mistake that I'll never surpass
I let go of my grip on the past

I don't remember
Just what made it so hard before
I know you needed someone to take the fall
I know you needed someone to blame it on

Hey, hey don't you look away
Hey, hey I've got something to say

    General CommentPerhaps it's about a broken relationship?

    Powderfinger don't seem to write stuff along these lines often, but whenever I listen to this song I think of it in reference to one. I guess the entire first verse makes me think that it is,;

    "Tonight my heart well it broke like glass
    I made a mistake that I'll never surpass
    I'm floating in space unattached to the world
    I cast off the memory of the spell of that girl
    Whatever i get i guess it's what I deserve"

    I can't really think of any other meanings this song could have.

    At any rate it's a great song to sing along to with mates... one of the better songs off Dream Days, but the entire album is pretty good quality.

    General CommentI love powderfinger to DEATH. and their new album is still of the same quallity as the rest!! love it!

    I'm not entirely sure what this song means. To me the first seems as though its as if he's just broken up with someone, and the second hes going back through memories adn moving on, and saying he cant remember why it was so hard to move on before.

    Either way, kick arse song!

    General CommentI think it's about a relationship that has ended, and one of the people is looking back on the relationship fondly, and isn't able to remember what made it so hard before. "I don't remember/just what made it so hard before"...and maybe he/she is realising the relationship wasn't that bad and is wants the other person back.
