"Never Forget You" as written by and Shingai Elizabeth Maria/smith Shoniwa....
What you're drinkin'
Rum or whiskey
Now don't you have a
Double with me
I'm sorry I'm a little late
I got your message by the away
I'm calling in sick today
So let's go out for old time sake

I'll never forget you
They say we'd never make it
My sweet joy, always remember me

We were mischievous
And you're always wearing black
I was so serious
You know my boyfriend's mama
Nearly had a heart attack
I'm sorry I'm a little late
You know the stripes of a tiger
Are hard to change
And notice, world feels like an empty stage
I wouldn't change a thing
So I'm glad your back again

I'll never forget you
They say we'd never make it
My sweet joy, always remember me
I'll never forget you
At times we couldn't take it all
My joy, always remember me

We just got swallowed up
You know I didn't forget you
We just got swallowed up

We just got swallowed up
But you know I didn't forget you
We just got swallowed up
By the whole damned world

What you thinking
Did you miss me
I've borrowed your silver boots
Now if you just let me
Give them back to you

I'll never forget you
They say we'd never make it
My sweet joy, always remember me
I'll never forget you
Although at times we couldn't change it all
Your my joy, always remember me

Don't you know that you're my joy
Always remember me

Don't you know that you're my joy
Always remember me

    Song MeaningI think plusbellange was on the right track, but did everyone forget about the possibility of a lesbian relationship??? I don't think this song is about a boy at all. I think it's about her first girlfriend. And, I don't think it's merely a coincidence that she calls this person "Joy", which is a female name. The line, " You know the stripes on a tiger are hard to change" coupled with " My boyfriend's mother nearly had a heart attack" leads me to believe that she always liked girls( maybe secretly?), but only dated guys in the past and then fell in love with this girl. Also, the line about borrowing the silver boots is proof that "Joy" is a girl. How many straight guys have silver boots that their girlfriend borrows and wears? But, the silver boots line also made me think about the end of a relationship when each person gives back the things they've borrowed ( books, dvds, t-shirts etc... )
