My love lies under the mattress In a gift bag of lettres and dried daisies He woos me My love lies in these sheets And he'll leave when he's good and ready You sleep with your hands in between your pillowcase And when you wake up your blinking eyes give you away To all the things I'll forget Wrap your arms tightly 'round the most painful folds Should I burn you down by the water While I dance in the riverbed with pointed toes Just gently Should I let you fly into the wind Where another can catch new meaning And in my scattered mind A puzzle to put it all to rest When I bury you pat down the dirt Cover the stains Of all the things I'll forget What is lost cannot bear my truth
2.
Under the covers it's not quite clear The floors were creaking You knew too much so I went blind And every day still paradigm Salt and auburn Silent snow The numbing warm of summer's glow Silent stoics they tuned it out And pushed it down, down And then one day I'm 95 At last I'll know just what I'm worth I am stagnant We are stale Clawing the dark Hammer and nail I know I would kill if I could just wake up On the outside looking in Love's when he asks forgiveness And sometimes I choose nothingness Because it bears some semblance to freedom
3.
Unknown lover The absence of you Isn't it better to be alone? Is this really what you wanted? Another sunrise wakes you cruel It's already over Circling, pacing the living room Restless or reckless You'll be the judge Why waste time when you can't sleep in?
4.
In the night as I lay sleeping I called your wicked name Plucked gently were my stolen words They ring a solemn dirge It's salty and perfuse You crave what you must use Acceptance gleams deep purple Rotten grapes turned into wine There remains an acrid flavour It's one to taste and savour I drink you up to sober 'Til numbness tightens knots Hail the creator He is a part of me Secret kept tightly behind closed doors And do you think of me? Will you remember those days? As you graft each piece together You're breathing soft and low You soldered all the wires Connecting as you go Your project is complete She's kneeling at your feet
5.
500 suitors in a queue they stand Masks on their noses A rose in each hand Like sitting ducks I'll shoot them all down One by one to the ground So I'll put on my evening gown And I'll act like the queen as you twirl me around But I'd rather dance the jitterbug A braver knight would spike the punch Even if we'd learned to whistle They'd be deaf to the sound Or the approaching rumble You daren't sing along A courtship forged Romance displayed And I'm acting the part of the handmaid Shouldn't you mind where you went astray? Your maiden every mundane day She rests in the palm of your hand And holds a chalice of wine She pours unspoken forgiveness And drinks up what you can't undo Don't you think that silence means forgiveness It calls you to your cowardice again Wait for your uncomposed cadence You will never harm another "Silence means forgiveness Her silence means forgiveness" You gave her no other choice but to sing Oh how you ran it's what you are
6.
It's Not 03:53
Wake up snow bright It can't be what it seems Await the weight to sink in The truth will tell Its name is spoke In whispered tones Wailing waves Old news pioneer You bit the hand that fed you It's not
7.
Crosstrail 01:07

The Room 04:19
Come into my kitchen Shadows balled up on the floor You'll feel sick about it You knew what I could not You pull up a chair Staring passed the walls I glance at the conversation impending And the unflinching weight of a dull stone Rambled around the memory High above the room No fear or hesitation That it was fucked up And you say sorry And I forgive I forgave but I can't forget And I took you off the hook Let you go too soon Words I wished I'd said Stumbling in the room And I still see your face As I lay on my back and pray I forgave but I can't forget

about

In All The Things I’ll Forget, dark folk singer-songwriter Corey Gulkin (formerly Corinna Rose) transforms the memories of an abusive relationship and its aftermath into a personal, introspective anthology that telegraphs the subtleties of abuse and forgiveness to the listener.

Gulkin’s sophomore full-length album is a bold artistic statement in both its subject matter and arrangements with songs centred around an eclectic trio, including banjo, electric guitar, and harp. Electronic drums and synth textures woven throughout cast an otherworldly sheen over the record. As a whole, All the Things I’ll Forget is necessarily feminist: honest, visceral, and full of moments of identification for all of us.
