The first draft of 'Forsake Me Not' was penned in 2005 during a creative whirlwind, intended to accompany tracks on the first 'A Name Will Come' EP. For those who remember, the song was written alongside 'Breaking Bread' and is similar in its theme as a plaintive hymn to a forgetful deity. However when cuts were made, the track was among those that didn't make it to the studio. Later recorded at home as an exercise in merging lo-fi sounds with a clearer sound, the song remains at heart a dark but truthful love song.

Also available on 'C Side Volume 2: Sinking Ships'


The pain you put me through
This agony
This trial
What have I done to you
Won't you let me come on home
Won't you take me now

Forsake me not
Desperately I'm yours
Dying on all fours
Set me free today

I have seen what comes
I am not damned or done
No lake of fire holds a place for me
Only darkness wandering
I see

Forsake me not
Desperately I am yours
Dying on all fours
Set me free today
