I want to be forgotten,
And I don't want to be reminded.
You say "please don't make this harder."
No, I won't yet.

I want to be beside her,
She want to be admired.
You say "please don't make this harder."
No, I won't yet.

Oh dear, is it really all true?
Did they offend us and they want it to sound new?
Top ten ideas for countdown shows
Whose culture is this and does anybody know?
I wait and tell myself "life ain't chess,"
But no one comes in and yes, you're alone

You don't miss me, I know.

Oh Tennessee, what did you write?
I come together in the middle of the night.
Oh that's an ending that I can't write, 'cause
I've got you to let me down.

I want to be forgotten,
And I don't want to be reminded.
You say "please don't make this harder."
No, I won't yet.

I want to be beside her,
She want to be admired.
You say "please don't make this harder."
No, I won't yet
