Forget me not Lyrics

Sat down at the piano
And played some of your songs
You don't know how the words go
But you sort of sang along
And I'm here to remind you
What's lost is never gone
You will
Forget, forget, forget
Forget me not
You will
Forget, forget,...

    It's about lead singer Josh Ramsay's struggle to cope with his mother's Lewy Body dementia. He is watching his mother slowly lose her memory, and sees that she cannot do the things she used to do, even if she tries (you don't know how the words go/but you sort of sang along). Her decline has become so bad that she is losing the ability to speak (echoes of aphasia/have haunted you tonight) and he realizes that he has to make the most of the time he has left with her, because she won't be around much longer (if memories are shadows/we best not waste the light).

    Throughout the song, Ramsay is torn between wanting more time with his mother and wanting her suffering to be over. (I know you're not quite here/ but you're not quite gone/ maybe life's too short/ but the end is long). Although he knows that this disease is painful for her, he is ultimately not prepared for her death (I'm not ready for what's to come/does that make me my mother's selfish son). No matter how many other things she forgets, he is determined to be such a big part of her remaining days that she cannot forget him (you will forget forget forget/forget me not).

    I believe this song is about josh Ramsey's mother, who is struggling with Lewey Body Dementia. It seems to describe someone who is losing control of their cognitive functions and their child who, while not ready to accept that he's losing his mother, wants to be with her through her decline.
