Tamara Kalinowska

I Forget
Słowa i muzyka: Tamara Kalinowska
Tłumaczenie: Zdzisław 'The Bat' Zabierzewski

I forget when I'm with you
That I'm not a king's daughter
I forget when I'm with you
I wear no crown at all
I was sure in your presence
I would leave things forgotten
Yet, I dared not believe that
It meant more, it meant more

I forget when I'm with you
That I'm never an angel
That my peace, though angelic,
Tends to sound like a yell
And for you, I'll get silent
Doubly silent and patient
Who will try to believe this?
No one will, no one will, no one will

Let me forget
Friendship is repaid with friendship
Let me forget
Love to love is tethered
All I'll recall
Is what kept us close together
And memory will
Make it live forever

I forget when I'm with you
I'm not opera, my darling
I forget when I'm with you
Of my autumnal voice
The bolero I'll write you
Will deserve a good aria
And you won't keep complaining:
Hard luck holds, hard luck holds

I forget when I'm with you
I'm not really a harpist
I forget when I'm with you
I've got six strings today
One of them could suffice now
And I'd play you that something
No quartet, no musicians,
And no orchestra can ever play!

Let me forget
Friendship is repaid with friendship
Let me forget
Love to love is tethered
All HI recall
Is what kept us close together
And memory will
Make it live forever

I forget when I'm with you
That I'm not a king's daughter
I forget when I'm with you
I wear no crown at all
I was sure in your presence
I would leave things forgotten
Yet, I dared not believe that
It meant more, it meant more,
It meant more...
