Don’t Forget

Don’t Forget” is a track added by Audiothrillseeker in the Hermetic Library audio pool.

 

“Myself and Hal improvised this track onto cassette one night jamming. We did the full production the next day. Hal’s words were brilliant and straight off the top of his head. We kept the improvised arrangement and lyrics intact. The song is about remembering that you are not self made and that you owe a debt to many people in your life. Through it, you transform yourself.”

 

“Don’t forget the way it was
When you first saw the sunrise
And you knew what it meant”

“Eyes open blind
Don’t regret the past time
Just be glad
You had your chance”
