I can't do this anymore
Stay in, black out, hit the floor
I've forgotten what I'm hiding from
But Mama called and cried to me
"Baby, your anniversary was last Tuesday"
That's right, okay, I guess it slipped my mind
And that's fine with me, I guess
Though it came as a surprise
I got to celebrate my memory's retreat
It's finally forgetting things
I pushed it away, I let history lie
Finally memory sleeps

It's going to be all right, okay?
I'm leaving everything behind
So goodnight, farewell, and cheers
To the new denial
Exhausted with the born again routine
You die a little bit each time you smile
So grit your teeth, they like you happy

    General CommentFor sake of only having TWO comments before me...i'll c what i can say about this...
    Maybe my favorite TGL song...at least this song i know puts a smile on my face. He can be so funny. But i read somewhere that basically this album was a lot about his divorce.

    Oh by the way when it goes " na na na nana na nana etc etc..." that part is the shit...."GOODNIGHT GOODNIGHT GOODNIGHT GOODNIGHT"

    You die a little bit each time you smile...so grit your teeth, they like you happy" WOWWWWWWWWWWWW
