I Can't Forget

©Leonard Cohen, released on I'm Your Man (1988)

.

I stumbled out of bed

I got ready for the struggle

I smoked a cigarette

And I tightened up my gut

I said this can't be me

Must be my double

And I can't forget, I can't forget

I can't forget but I don't remember what

.

I'm burning up the road

I'm heading down to Phoenix

I got this old address

Of someone that I knew

It was high and fine and free

Ah, you should have seen us

And I can't forget, I can't forget

I can't forget but I don't remember who

.

I'll be there today

With a big bouquet of cactus

I got this rig that runs on memories

And I promise, cross my heart,

They'll never catch us

But if they do, just tell them it was me

.

Yeah I loved you all my life

And that's how I want to end it

The summer's almost gone

The winter's tuning up

Yeah, the summer's gone

But a lot goes on forever

And I can't forget, I can't forget

I can't forget but I don't remember what
