Time to Forget You

2004 will galison


You’d leave me forever

Every time you felt you’re losing control

Then You’d slip back again

When You needed a friend

And I’d let you


But You tossed off my love

Like an old cigarette

Which somehow ‘til now

Hadn’t gone out yet


I’ve forgiven you too many times

Now its time to forget you


I remember the night you dropped by

And decided to stay

And I think of the woman

I thought that I saw when I met you


Well I may have been lonely

I may have been blind

But if I took you back now

Id be out of my mind


I’ve forgiven you too many times

It’s time to forget you


Time to forget you

ever shared this space

Forget each lingering trace

The pictures I kept in a box by the bed for a start

Time to take your toothbrush  off the rack

Time to light a fire out in back


For the Sweaters you left in my closet

And the hole that you left in my heart.


You say I’m to blame

and you claim that I’ve been wasting your time

And you always come round

To just how far down I have let you


Well the Bible taught and I thought Id learned

But I just ran out of cheeks to turn

I’ve forgiven you too many times

Now its time to forget you


Well I hear you have chosen

the one who’ll be taking my place

A prince of a guy

Who would never defy or upset you


But nobody with a shred of dignity

Would ever love you as long

as a chump like me

I’ve forgiven you too many times

Now its time to forget you


Time to forget your lips voice your taste

Forget your silent grace

The Angel that swept down

The moment you let down your guard


Time To forget we held each other tight

Naked in the morning light

The perfume you left on my pillow

And the hole that you left in my heart


If only you’d shown me

the valley you walk through each day

And the ghosts you’ve been trying to shed

But they always are with you


If you’d cried out the pain

Like the rest of us do

I would gladly have walked

Through that valley with you

And I’d forget all those too many time

And once more I’d forgive you.
