I've been trying so long to get you out of mind
I've been trying so hard to get you out of my eyes
I've been drinking your words every night
I've been drinking my dreams dry

I've spent sixteen months trying to forget you
Then a black-and-white film plays in my mind
Where we broke for the border in an open-top sportscar
And married, in a town much like mine
And we promised ourselves such implausible things
Told each other our impossible dreams
And you know
Love is easy in my movie show

Oh, I want to forget you
Oh, I want to forget you

Then I flashback

Flashback to a time of stolen memories
We are tied by our lies, we are tied by history

And so we're handcuffed together, like it or not
And drinking our dreams is all that we've got
And the barman just smiles
Oh god, he's seen it all before

Oh, I want to forget you
Oh, I want to forget you
Oh, I can never forget you

I can never forget

I spent sixteen months trying to forget you
Then a black-and-white film plays in my mind
Where we broke for the border in an open-top sportscar
And married, in a town much like mine
And so we're handcuffed together, like it or not
And drinking our dreams is all that we've got
And the barman just smiles
Oh god, he's seen it all before

Oh, I want to forget you
Oh, I want to forget you
Oh, I want to forget you
Oh, I can never forget you
