"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Matt Nathanson - Wide Eyed and Full

Lately I can’t tell my friends from my enemies,
when it use to seem so clear.
I tried rebellion once, and look where it’s gotten me:
banging apologies against your deaf ears.

And she said, “Sing me a sweet song tonight..
Sing me a new song tonight.”

We used to lie side by side;
I could cover myself in you..
We used to lie,
but I’m, I am no longer so wide-eyed and full.

Lately, I can’t tell where all this is taking me.
I’m spilling over and spitting spiteful words.
There was a time once when I understood my cruelty,
but now I’m not so sure, and she said,

“Sing me a sweet song tonight..
Sing me a new song tonight.”

We used to lie side by side;
I could cover myself in you..
We used to lie,
but I’m,
well I am no longer so wide-eyed and full..
I am no longer so wide-eyed and full. …
