(written by Leonard Cohen) originally performed by Leonard Cohen
I stumbled out of bed. I got ready for the struggle.
I smoked a cigarette and I tightenend up my gut.
I said this can't be me, must be my double.
And I can't forget, I can't forget,
I can't forget but I don't remember what
I'm burning up the road. I'm heading down to
Phoenix. I got this old address of someone that
I knew. It was high and fine and free, ah you
should have seen us. And I can't forget, I can't
forget, I can't forget but I don't remember who.
I'll be there today with a big bouquet of cactus. I
got this rig that runs on memory. And I promise, cross
my heart, they'll never catch us. But if they do just tell
them it was me.
I loved you all my life, and that's how I want to end
it. The summer's almost gone. The winter's tuning
up. Yeah, the summer's gone but a lot goes on
forever. And I can't forget, I can't forget, I can't
forget but I don't remember what.
