Jeff Buckley Forget Her Lyrics

Last updated: 09/01/2011 11:00:00 AM

while this town is busy sleeping
all the noises died away
i walk the streets to stop my weeping
‘cause she'll never change her ways

don't fool yourself
she was heartache from the moment that you met her
my heart feels so still
as i try to find the will to forget her somehow
oh i think i've forgotten her now

her love is a rose pale and dying
dropping her petals and men unknown
all full of wine the world before her
or 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
cause i try to find the will to forget her somehow
she's somewhere out there now

(guitar solo)

oh my tears are falling down as i try to forget
her love was a joke from the day that we met
all of the words all of the 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 yourself over and over you wont ever need her again

But don't fool yourself
she was heartache from the moment that you met her
oh my heart is frozen still
as i try to find the will to forget her somehow
she's out there somewhere now

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

amazing. just amazing. that voice, the lyrics of his songs. amazing. i wish he were still alive. if we could trade an artist today to bring Jeff Buckley back, i'm sure we would do so in a heartbeat.

i love absolutely all of his songs.
cause it all came from the bottom of his heart. and it still comes to ours.

real musicians dont write for fame and fortune | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/29/09

buckley refused to put this song on grace cause it was too personal, which is why it wasnt released until after his death. if thats not the notion of a true artist, then i dont know what is. he wrote songs like this because he needed to, it was his soul coming out in the form of music, which is why they are so powerful.'s all about pain! | Reviewer: Venera | 4/3/09

Grace is one of my favourites albums ever. It haunts you, it disarms you with its natural and pure beauty from within. I'm eager to listen to this song over and over, it's amazing... but it hurts so badly...

Amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/5/09

I'm speechless.
I've just listened to this song for the first time and I'm actually gob smacked, it's so powerful!
I absolutely adore everything he's done. I especially like Yard of Blonde Girls and Lover You Should've Come Over :)

wow. | Reviewer: Nanna | 2/14/09

i just don't know what to say. i love this song, and all the other fantastic songs on Greace. i can't do anything beside listening to him sing when i hear his songs. it's like everything stops. love it.

Amazing | Reviewer: Rafaella | 9/14/08

It's beautiful, it's pure emotion, it's so true and it's so sexy. Damn, such a complete artist... I don't think the world will ever see such a guy like this before.

RIP Jeff. Hope to meet ya someday.

I'll never forget the first time | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/4/08

I heard this song. I was driving home from work one night, half listening to the small town AM radio station.
'Forget Her' came on and I just had to pull over to the side of the road. And there I was, sitting in the pitch black by the side of this country road listening in awe to this amazing song.
Thankfully the announcer gave Jeff's name at the end and when I got home I downloaded the song. I have been in awe of it ever since. It haunts me. Like everyone here has stated - it describes perfectly the emotions felt by those who have ever found themselves in just such a situation.
Why is it that the greatest musical talents always have to die way too soon?
