Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Heavy, suddenly they seem heavy
the linen and velvets of your bed
when our love passes to oblivion
Verse 2
Heavy, suddenly they seem heavy
your arms embracing me
formerly in the night
Verse 3
My boat parts, it's going somewhere
people get separated,
I'm forgetting, I'm forgetting
Verse 4
Later, at some other place in a mahogany bar
the violins playing again for us
our song, but I'm forgetting
Verse 5
Later, it splits off to a cheek to cheek
everything becomes blurred and
I'm forgetting, I'm forgetting
Verse 6
Brief, the times seem brief
the countdown of a night
when our love passes to oblivion
Verse 7
Brief, the times seem brief
your fingers running all over
my lifeline.
Verse 8
Without a glance
people are straying off
on a train platform,
I'm forgetting, I'm forgetting
