Aiken, Clay - Forget I Ever Knew You Lyrics




I lie awake while the rest of the world sleeps happily
I'm tossing and turning in the dark
I try to make some sense of the mess that calls itself my life
Just wish I knew where I should start

I'd go back in time if I could
and erase you from my mind for good
I get so tired of trying
Maybe I should just...

Fly away let my heart pretend
My dream comes true and the story ends
I get on my feet and start again
And forget I ever knew you
I leave the past and rise above
I let you go and fall in love
With everything that I'm made of
Say goodbye to all I've been through
And forget I ever knew you

I turn the page I've got nothing to say but I'll start writing anyway
Something that gets me moving on again
Stuck in this place I'm putting one foot in front of the other foot
Maybe today I'll let this be over and done again

I'd make up my mind if I could
And leave this all behind me for good
I'm getting tired of trying
So maybe I should just...

Fly away let my heart pretend
My dream comes true and the story ends
I get on my feet and start again
And forget I ever knew you
I leave the past and rise above
I let you go and fall in love
With everything that I'm made of
Say goodbye to all I've been through
And forget I ever knew you

The sun can shine a little brighter now
I'm gonna make it on my own somehow
And I will start feeling alive again, yeah

I'll start living life with no regrets
'Cause the best hasn't happened yet
I'm just fine with you out of my life

I'll just, fly away let my heart pretend
My dream comes true and the story ends
I get on my feet and start again
And forget I ever knew you
I leave the past and rise above
I let you go and fall in love
With everything that I'm made of
Say goodbye to all I've been through
And forget I ever knew you
And forget I ever knew you

I never knew you
Say goodbye to all I've been through
And forget I ever knew you

    I've loved this song from the minute I heard it. It should've made the album. Little did I know how appropriate it would become. Great song for a great singer with a wonderful uplifting message. Congratulations Clay to a new beginning! And thanks to Greg Critchley for writing it...the best hasn't happened yet!

  38. suereu

    ahhh, that's okay - I HAVE THE POWER!!! It's just too bad they're too STUPID to realize that I'm not gonna approve their comments and they just keep leaving them (some of them two, three, four times).

    Thank you for the nice words. I love this CD. Clay, Jaymes and Kipper (and all of the talented musicians) did an amazing job!!!

  39. suereu

    I have changed the comment section to by approval only. Sorry, tired of deleting nasty posts from very, very nasty people (who really need to get lives)

  40. ancestralyuba

    When I need a little light of inspiration, I listen to Clay Aiken.

  41. VJ C

    amazing voice...i have his 2 cds and never get tired of it...

  42. Dayna Hynek

    Cool! I'm an Archuleta fan too! I definutely think he should have won... Oh, well, David Cook was pretty good too I guess.

  43. Dayna Hynek

    Clay Aiken is so awesome! He sings so good!

  44. suereu

    thanks all for the nice comments!!! If you are an international fan and need this CD, please send me an e-mail :)

  45. funforfinn

    I love his husky voice at 00:20-00:35, goes well with the story, kind of desperate. Love this song, wish I could get it too...

  46. sentaikng

    clay looks really good when he had his long dark colored hair

  47. suereu

    those pictures were used in the yahoo music video for On My Way Here. They were also used in a webisode (but I cannot for the LIFE of me remember which one). If you go to yahoo and click on videos, he's featured on the front page :)

  48. 1texasfanhere

    What was the photo shot of him sitting on the steps at 1:23 for?? I've seen the pics. before, but have not seen them associated with anything. I love your video! You did a great job with one of my favorite songs from the new CD.

  49. CandyCoatedDarkness

    It was my comment you removed, but that's okay. I understand. I still think this has to be one of the most beautiful montages to one of the most beautiful songs Clay has done! I urge everyone to go out and get the CD with this bonus song!! Great job!

  50. suereu

    the pics were taken in LA and can be found on JustJared and PacificCoastNews :)

    Thanks!

  51. suereu

    for some reason I can't post, so let's try again.

    I accidentally removed a comment (SORRY!!!!!). The program I used for this montage (and all the others) is Pinnacle Studio Ultimate 11 (or something like that)

    This is an amazing song and can be found on the bonus CD at WalMart (online or in a store near you)

  52. suereu

    :) hi cali!!! thanks!!!

  53. Robin Moyer
