​My Brain Is Like A Sieve

This song is by Thomas Dolby and appears on the album Aliens Ate My Buick (1988).

Oh! My brain is like a sieve
Sometimes it's easier to forget
All the bad things you did to me,
You did to me.

Oh! My brain is like sieve
But it knows when it's being messed with, yeah
If you wanted you could come in,
So come in.

When you said you loved me
When you told me you cared
That you would be a part of me, mmmm
That you would always be there
Did you really mean to hurt me?
No, I think you only meant to tease.
But it's hard to remember,
I lost my memory. See...

My brain is like a sieve
Sometimes it's easier to forget
All the bad things you did to me,
You did to me.

My brain is like sieve
But it knows when it's being messed with, ah!
If you wanted, you could come in,
So come in.
Ye-a-a-a-ah!

You ought to be ashamed of your behaviour
When you're treating me this way
As if I had deserved to be a place to vent your ire
Some day I'm gonna douse that bonfire
We make a crucial team for a dying world
And style is a word I never even heard
In your vocabulary, (ire) victim of a murder mystery
Murder!

My brain is like a sieve
Sometimes it's easier to forget
All the bad things you did to me,
You did to me.
Did to me
Ye-a-a-a-a-ah!

My brain is like a sieve
My brain is like a sieve, yeah
Sometimes it's easier to forget
All the bad things you did to me,
You did to me.
Ah!

My brain is like sieve
But it's a place where we both could live
If you wanted, you could come in,
So come in.

When you said you loved me
When you told me you cared

When you said you loved me
When you told me you cared
That you would be a part of me, mmmm
That you would always be there
Did you really mean to hurt me?
No, I think you only meant to tease.
But it's hard to remember,
Through these broken memories
