Jeff Buckley – Forget Her (1993/2004)

Scroll down to content

“Forget Her” is a song by Jeff Buckley. The song was recorded during sessions for Buckley’s only completed studio album Grace, but remained unofficially released until it was featured as the opening track on the bonus disc of Grace: Legacy Edition, a 2004 remastered reissue of the album. The song was subsequently included as a bonus track on several European editions of the standard album. “Forget Her” was subject to much controversy because Buckley specifically chose not to use it for the final release of his debut Grace, opting instead for “So Real”. A music video was created for the song, compiled from previously unreleased footage, and was included on the bonus DVD with Grace: Legacy Edition.




Jeff-Buckley-Forget-Her-Single

While this time’s busy sleeping,
All the noise has died away.
I walk the streets to stop my weeping,
She’ll never change her ways.

Don’t fool yourself, she was heartache from the moment that you met her.
And my heart is frozen still as I try to find the will to forget her, somehow.
She’s somewhere out there now.

Her love is a rose, pale and dying.
Dropping her petals in land unknown
All full of wine, the world before her, was sober with no place to go.

Don’t fool yourself, she was heartache from the moment that you met her.
My heart is frozen still as I try to find the will to forget her, somehow.
She’s somewhere out there now.

[Guitar Solo]

Well my tears fall down as I try to forget,
Her love was a joke from the day that we met.
All of the words, all of her men,
all of my pain when I think back to when.

Remember her hair as it shone in the sun,
the smell of the bed when I knew what she’d done.
Tell myself over and over you won’t ever need her again.

But don’t fool yourself,
she was heartache from the moment that you met her.
My heart is frozen still as I try to find the will to forget her, somehow.
She’s out there somewhere now.

Oh She was heartache from the day that I first met her.
My heart is frozen still as I try to find the will to forget you, somehow.
Cause I know you’re somewhere out there right now
