"I Forget Where We Were" as written by and Benjamin John Howard....
Oh hey,
I wasn't listening
I was watching serial
Blinded by the sunshine strip
You, you were in the kitchen
Oh your mind was marked and wounded with the wounders whip
And that's how summer passed oh your,
Great divide and range of green green grass
Oh, maybe it was peace at last, who knew

Hello love, my invincible friend
Hello love, the thistle and the burr
Hello love, for you I have so many words
But I, I forget where we were

Oh hey,
I wasn't listening,
I was stung by all of us
The blind leading up the wall
And as per usual,
You were skipping and laughing eyes at the bedroom door

Don't take it so seriously, no
Only time is ours
The rest we'll just wait and see
Maybe you're right, babe, maybe

Oh no, and that's how summer passed
Oh your, great divide
And range of green green grass
Oh, maybe I hold on fast, to you

Hello love, my invincible friend
Hello love, the thistle and the burr
Hello love, for you I have so many words
But I, I forget where we were

I, I forget where we were
I forget where we were
I forget where we were,

Oh no, and that's how summer passed
Oh your, great divide
And range of green green grass
Oh, maybe it was peace at last, who knew

    My InterpretationPossibly autobiographical and if so there's a rather beautiful apology in here.

    He is watching the news, and seeing the state of the world and the atrocities man is able to inflict on each other and the earliest opportunity, and takes it a little too to heart.

    "Oh, your mariner’s mouth the wounded with the wounder's whip" think points toward an argument between them, and she is cursing at him for not seeing "Don't take it so seriously...Only time is ours".

    They're both right, you can't ignore the wolves at the door, but you also have to realise what you hold immediately in front of you.

    My InterpretationTo me, Howard is looking back on a past relationship with someone that he deeply loved and cared about. Although he cared for this person, their relationship was filled with fights none the less. Howard may of taken for granted his relationship with this person... He remembers fine details like "you were in the kitchen" and his love saying "only time is ours". But suddenly as he is recalling the memories, he can't remember a detail. He forgets where they were.
    This song is about slowly moving on. Slowly forgetting a past love and realizing that you are moving on. There are feelings on sadness and regret, and a little bit of shock that he can't recall a certain moment that you once held close to you. Its about forgetting, regardless of the fact you are ready to or not.
