To Forgive Lyrics

by Smashing Pumpkins

Ten times removed
I forget about where it all began
Bastard son of a bastard son of
A wild eyed child of the sun
And right as rain, I'm not the same
But I feel the same, I feel nothing

Holdin' back the fool again
Holdin' back the fool pretends
I forget to forget nothing is important
Holdin' back the fool again

I sensed my loss
Before I even learned to talk
And I remember my birthdays
Empty party afternoons won't come back

Holdin' back the fool again
Holdin' back the fool pretends
I forget to forget nothing is important
Holdin' back the fool again

I forget to forget me
I forget to forget you see
Nothing is important to me
I knew my loss before I even learned to speak
And all along, I knew it was wrong
But I played along with my birthday song

Holdin' back the fool again
Holdin' back the fool pretends
I forget to forget nothing is important
Holdin' back the fool again
