I Forget Where We Were
Ben Howard Lyrics


Oh hey, I wasn't listening
I was watching Syria
Blinded by the sunshine strip
You, you were in the kitchen
Oh, your mariner's mouth
The wounded with the wounder's whip

And that's how summer passed away
The great dividing range, the green, green grass
And oh, maybe it was peace at last
Who knew?

Hello love, my invincible friend
Oh, hello love, the thistle and the burr
Oh, hello love, for you I have so many words
But I, I forget where we were, no

Oh hey, I wasn't listening
I was stung by all of us
The blind leading out the bored
And as per usual
You were skipping and laughing
Eyes at the bedroom door
"Don't take it so seriously, no
Only time is ours, the rest we'll just wait and see!"
Maybe you're right, babe
Maybe

Oh, Lord
And that's how summer passed
Oh, the great dividing range, the green, green grass
And oh, maybe I'll hold on fast
To you

Then hello love, my invincible friend
Oh, hello love, the thistle and the burr
Oh, hello love, for you I have so many words
But I, I forget where we were, no
I forget where we were, no
I forget where we were, no
I forget where we were

Oh, Lord
And that's how summer passed
Oh, the great dividing range, the green, green grass
And oh, maybe it was peace at last
Who knew?

"I Forget Where We Were"
Oh, hey
I wasn't listening
I was watching Syria blinded by the sunshine strip
And you, you were in the kitchen
Oh, your mariner's mouth
The wounded with the wounder's whip
And that's how summer passed oh
The great dividing range of green, green grass
Oh, maybe it was peace at last, who knew
Hello love, my invincible friend
Hello love, the thistle and the burr
Hello love, for you I have so many words
But I, I forget where we were
Oh, hey
I wasn't listening
I was stung by all of us
The blind leading out the bored
And as per usual
You were skipping and laughing eyes at the bedroom door
"Don't take it so seriously, no
Only time is ours, the rest we'll just wait and see!"
Maybe you're right, babe, maybe
Oh, no, and that's how summer passed
Oh the great dividing range, the green green grass
And, oh, maybe I hold on fast to you
Hello love, my invincible friend
Hello love, the thistle and the burr
Hello love, for you I have so many words
But I, I forget where we were
I, I forget where we were
I forget where we were
I forget where we were
Oh, no, and that's how summer passed
Oh, your, great dividing range, the green green grass
Oh, maybe it was peace at last, who knew

Only 30 seconds into the video, and I already love it. Damn it Ben Howard, why can't you just marry me already?

This video is extremely, extremely deep and emotional. For those of you that seem to think the video does no justice to the song, you aren't really understanding the full meaning of the song and the message it is sending out. This represented it beyond what I could have imagined. I actually got teary eyed. I felt the distance, I felt the struggle, I felt the tension. But I also felt the connection and the want and need to not forget, to not give up. "Maybe it was peace at last, who knew."

"Hello love, for you I have so many words
But I, I forget where we were" - this video captivates this so well.


This was beautiful. I wouldn't have expected anything else.

My wife died in my arms from an unexpected heart attack after 19 years of blissful marriage. she just stopped talking and was gone despite me doing CPR. This song resonates.

I've listened to everything Ben has ever put out and I've been moved by all of it, but this...this surpasses everything.
