Forgotten



By Innermost



Our eyes meet across the space of our home bar,
We smile together making each other’s good feelings,
I call you over so we can work it all out,
What is your name? How old are you?
Have you had baby? Where are you from?
Let’s get to know each other in twenty-five minutes,
And you told me something, which I’ve already forgotten.

I think we should go now and head for our fate,
Your going to be the one that’s different from the rest,
We don’t belong here so we’ll go back to my room,
Wave down taxi on Sukhumvit with our deal closed,
We’re going to get what we wanted before we came out,
Cocooned from the sauna as the air con wind blows,
And you told me something, which I’ve already forgotten.

A hotel in Bangkok at two in the morning,
Gazing out the window watching the lightshow,
Sighing at this vastness next to you in the darkness,
Holding each other so we don’t change our minds,
Talking our sincerity and pretending we’re lovers,
How did we end up in this virtual reality way of life?
And you told me something, which I’ve already forgotten.

Let’s try to impress like a hundred lovers before,
You and I will be the best that each other’s ever had,
Imagining someone better with the light off in this darkness,
Boom boom thank you mam, kop koon ka farang man,
Orange tip glowing signaling my mission accomplished,
Not same same you, Thai lady don’t smoke that way,
And you told me something, which I’ve already forgotten.

A hotel in Bangkok at ten in the morning,
You in the shower and me in your handbag,
Just a little pocket money, I know you love me really,
Last night you told me something, which now I remember,
It’s fifteen hundred for long time but I can go short as well,
I smoke good as well baby, let me show you back at your hotel,
And you told me something, which I’ll always forget.
