Have You Forgotten
Red House Painters Lyrics


I can't let you be, cause your beauty won't allow me
Wrapped in white sheets,
Like an angel from a bedtime story
And shut out what they say,

'Cause your friends are fucked up anyway
And when they come around,
Somehow they feel up and you feel down.

When we were kids, we hated things our parents did
We listened low to Casey Kasem's radio show
That's when friends were nice,
To think of them just makes you feel nice

The smell of grass in spring
And October leaves cover everything.

[Repeat: x2]
Have you forgotten how to love yourself?

I can't believe all the good things that you do for me
Sat back in a chair like a princess from a faraway place
Nobody's nice, when you're older your heart turns to ice
And shut out what they say;
They're too dumb to mean it anyway

When we were kids, we hated things our sisters did
Backyard summer pools and Christmases were beautiful
And the sentiment of coloured mirrored ornaments
And the open drapes
Look out on frozen farmhouse landscapes

[Repeat: x6]
Have you forgotten how to love yourself?

Casey Kasem's radio show..I listened, but I didn't have friends that made me feel nice. But everything else Mark sings about makes me long for that era.

Love "Angel", not "princess" as it was in the album version. Some of us aren't princesses and don't love princesses. That's why I like this version so much better. Tender nostalgic pain. Perfection.

"I still can't believe all the good things that you did for me" that's for my dad.
