Gitane Demone Quartet - I Have Forgotten How to Love You

from Women Sing Williams, Songs of David E. Williams in the Female Voice by VARIOUS

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    For over 30 years, David E. Williams has delighted and disturbed a worldwide audience with his demented chamber pop across seven full length albums.

    From the surgical theatre to the barnyard, he has written songs of forbidden love and compulsory violence, of relationships that sour in in the dreary day to day, and of love fulfilled only in death and the grief of dead lovers. In other words: the true songs of our shared humanity across all boundaries.

    Now, dark music royalty such as Tara Vanflower, Gitane Demone and Scout Pare-Phillips recreate these curiously empathetic songs in a manner never heard before. From goth disco to ethnic folk to musique concrete', this is a David E. Williams release unlike any other, yet each track asserts itself as a newer, better ultimate version. It's as if each song was somehow always intended to sound this way.

    Enjoy these gifts.

lyrics

I Have Forgotten How to Love You
I Have Forgotten How to Love You
I Have Forgotten How to Love You
I Have Forgotten How to Love You

A squirrel walked into the mower.
Alright, I put him in there if truth be told.
But I was
young and gay in a terrible time.
To my mind, still,
my most heinous crime
is that

I Have Forgotten How to Love You
and reason for going on is gone, gone.
Pilate resigns with a sign of the cross.
You can't fly an airplane on chocolate sauce.

There was a bear
a holy terror in your room.
When I shot him I discovered
he was my brother
in a bear costume.

So much for me as the Iron Man
a warrior soul made of marzipan

The memories of those better years
are shining brightly through my tears.
I Have Forgotten How to Love You.
I can't remember how.
Dismember, disembowel
me now.
