lest we forget lyrics – waifs

lest we forget,
your dates as a younger man
like how when you were nine,
you fell in love
because she was the first girl
you’d seen throw a cricket ball
you knew that you’d be together
for the rest of your lives
now you sit alone in the sun,
in the backyard, feeding the birds
reading the newspaper
thinking about the love that
you shouldn’t have lost
love that you lost,
love that you shouldn’t have,
love that you lost,
love that you shouldn’t have,
love that you lost,
love that you shouldn’t have lost
when i was a child,
i didn’t see her much
she p*ssed away before i was five
i was so young
that it barely affected my life
then one day when i asked
you told me she was magnificent
all that i had was
your word and a photograph
but that look in your eyes told me
all that i needed to know
love that you lost,
love that you shouldn’t have,
love that you lost,
love that you shouldn’t have,
love that you lost,
love that you shouldn’t have lost
love that you lost,
love that you shouldn’t have,
love that you lost,
love that you shouldn’t have,
love that we lost,
love that you shouldn’t have lost.
