"Forget Myself" as written by Guy Edward John Garvey, Richard Barry Jupp, Mark Potter, Craig Lee Potter and Peter James Turner....
They’re pacing Piccadilly in packs again
And moaning for the mercy of a never come rain
The sun’s had enough and the simmering sky
Has the heave and the hue of a woman on fire
Shop shutters rattle down and I’m cutting the crowd
All scented and descending from the satellite towns
The neon is graffiti singing make a new start
So I look for a plot where I can bury my broken heart

No I know I wont forget you but I’ll forget myself if the city will forgive me

The man on the door has a head like Mars
Like a baby born to the doors of the bars
And surrounded by steam with his folded arms
He’s got that urban genie thing going on
He’s so mercifully free of the pressures of grace
Saint Peter in satin he’s like Buddha with mace

No I know I wont forget you but I’ll forget myself if the city will forgive me

Do you move through the room with a glass in your hand?
Thinking too hard about the way you stand
Are you watching them pair off and drinking them long?
Are you falling in love every second song?

No I know I wont forget you but I’ll forget myself and the city will forgive me

    General CommentSatellite Towns, yeah in this case he's talking about bury, bolton, stockport, oldham etc. but it applies to any city and it's surrounding towns, the folk of which are decending upon the bright city lights. This is about drowning your sorrows in an unfamiliar/cold/non-judgemental city where nobody knows you and you will be forgiven for whatever you do, because nobody cares. "No I know I wont forget you but I’ll forget myself and the city will forgive me".
