"Bliss (I Don't Wanna Know)" as written by Brian Howes, Michael Rodden, Austin Winkler, Lloyd Garvey, Ross Hanson and Mark King....
(I don't wanna know)
(I don't wanna know)
(I don't wanna know)

I'll go ahead and pour myself a drink
I really couldn't care less what you think
Well, I don't have to listen now
Live this day down
If I can't feel a thing
You might as well save your goodbyes
We can give this train wreck one last ride
I'm gonna have to listen now
Live this day down
If I don't make things right
I'll tell you one last time

I don't wanna know it's over
So save your goodbye kiss
I don't wanna know it's over
'Cause ignorance is bliss
I can hardly see
What's in front of me
'Cause the vodka's running on empty
I can't stay sober
If it's over
(I don't wanna know)
(I don't wanna know)
(I don't wanna know)
So save your goodbye kiss
(I don't wanna know)
(I don't wanna know)
(I don't wanna know)

I woke up with a heartbeat in my head
I reached for the bottle by the bed
I saw your side was not slept in
Cold sheets again
Remind me of what you said
We need to take a break for a while
It's been so long since I smiled
I don't wanna listen now
Live this day down
With you so drunk and high
So I'll say goodbye

I don't wanna know it's over
So save your goodbye kiss
I don't want to know it's over
'Cause ignorance is bliss
I can hardly see
What's in front of me
'Cause the vodka's running on empty
I can't stay sober
If it's over

I don't wanna know it's over
So save your goodbye kiss
I don't wanna know it's over
'Cause ignorance is bliss
Now I know I can't stay sober
'Cause you left me here like this
I don't wanna know
(I don't wanna know)
(I don't wanna know)
(I don't wanna know)
So save your goodbye kiss
(I don't wanna know)
(I don't wanna know)
(I don't wanna know)
'Cause ignorance is bliss
I can hardly see
What's in front of me
'Cause the vodka's running on empty
I can't stay sober
If it's over
If it's over
I don't wanna know
If it's over
If it's over
I don't wanna know

    General Comment"I don't wanna know its over" he doesn't want to know if its over between him and his girl. "Ignorance is Bliss" he'd be happy if he didn't know that its over.

    General Commenti dont really agree w/ thetrukillat...like, okay, so his girlfriend has an issue w/ his drug and alcohol habits, hes weighing her down. so she ends it. but shes still in love with him, and hes still in love with her. so basically hes in denial.

    General CommentActually, I thinks he's drinking away his pain, wrekked. "Now I know I can’t stay sober
    Cause you left me here like this."
    It's a behavior I can understand. I've thought about doing it myself while going through my divorce. Anyway, it's a damn good song. I listen to it often of late.

    General Commentahhh i love this song! i can hella relate.

    i really never understood why ignorance was bliss until it actually happened to me. i wont get into it but this song just really hit me.

    and the drinking just makes everything go away. and he doesn't want to cope with the fact that the relationship is over.

    General CommentHe's drinking to keep the pain of them breaking up away and he would rather just drink and pretend it's not then deal with it

    General CommentHe is going thru one hell of a rocky relationship and they say don't bottle things up inside when he litterally is,just drinking and it's worse now that he knows with or without it,he's lost her which is basically EVERYTHING to him worth living for

    General CommentI love this song so much. It basically told my story for about two weeks after my bf broke up with me. I refused to accept it. Got drunk constantly.
