Appearances

Overview

"Never Forget" features an extended instrumental guitar section that appears[citation needed] to feature three distinct parts: solos from Rivers Cuomo and Eric Ridel, followed by a duet between the two. It isn't known who performs each individual solo. The song was played live at at least two of the band's performances: Avant Garde concert: 05/24/88[2] and Avant Garde concert: 04/21/88[3].

The same recording is featured on both The Purple Demo and Somethin' Different.

Lyrics

You return to me after all this time
I thought that if I waited that you would be mine
Sometimes things take a turn around
I knew that I had to wait it out

Never forget, I never forgot you
Never forgive and now I've got you
Never forget that I still want you
Never forget my love still haunts you

I had to talk to you
I had to hear your voice
I thought you wanted to see me
That I had no choice
Sometimes things take a turn around
I knew that I had to wait it out

Never forget, I never forgot you
Never forgive and now I've got you
Never forget that I still want you
Never forget my love still haunts you

I had you in my arms
It felt just like before
There must be a part of you
That still wants me more
Sometimes things take a turn around
I knew that I had to wait it out
