Skyclad – You Lost My Memory lyrics
Unstoppable force and immovable object,
Repel one another when by chance colliding
.
The Brownian-Motion within this love potion,
Ensures our opinions are always dividing
.
I am from Mars my dear;
You hail from Venus
.
A meeting star-crossed
Like the Sun and the Moon
.
Destined to let this cruel world
Come between us
.
Our last kiss eclipsed by a shadow at noon.

A rose that is built
Out of music by moonlight;
Petals stained ruby with nightingale blood.
Cast down in disgust
To be crushed by a cart-wheel,
Because of mere trivia misunderstood
.

We quest for a grail of illusive perfection,
Each hoping we'll find it some glorious day
.
Yet gaze with remorse at our jaded reflection,
That looks like The Picture Of Dorian Gray
.

[Chorus:]
Siamese Twins who were joined at the heart.
Love's an affliction without a known remedy
.
Blunt-bladed fate
Deemed to cleave us apart
;
Emotional surgery pays no indemnity.
Some seek release with effete anaesthesia
,
Others adapt to the role of sworn enemy.
You found nepenthe in cheap, sweet amnesia
;
It was far easier losing my memory.

And the nightingale sang:
"Sing love's lament
With a thorn at your breast.
Impaled by her barb;
Cruel and unforgiving
.
A million dead poets would gladly attest;
Heart-ache's a keepsake
To remind us we're living. "


[Chorus:]
Siamese Twins who were joined at the heart.
Love's an affliction without a known remedy.
Blunt-bladed fate
Deemed to cleave us apart;
Emotional surgery pays no indemnity.
Some seek release with effete anaesthesia,
Others adapt to the role of sworn enemy.
You found nepenthe in cheap, sweet amnesia;
It was far easier losing my memory.

    To me the song tells the tale of two people who by chance meet, fall in love, but soon find out they're not made for each other.

    The song also depicts a lot of work from Oscar Wilde with mentioning of the Dorian Gray who made a deal to keep his youth in the form of a picture that took all the ageing and sin that Dorian did.

    The song also notes the tale of the The nightingale and the rose, where a Nightingale (bird) gives itself to form a red rose to give to the Student to give to the one he desires thinking it's true love. The sacrifice of the Nightigale is done by singing in the moonlight "A rose that is built of music by moonlight" with a thorn stuck in the Nightingales Breast slowly killing it/drawing its blood to form the rose.

    In the end the students takes the rose to his love and finds she's no longer interested in the rose as it would clash with her new choice of clothes.

    The student gets angry and goes back to reading his books.

    I feel you lost my memory is a tale of heartache and unrequited love.
