Came Here to Forget

Album: If I'm Honest (2016)
Charted: 36
  • Girl getting over him and I'm getting over her
    The eyes have it made, ain't gotta say a word
    Misery loves company, that's why it's you and me
    Buying each other drinks, back at the bar, thick as thieves
    Stealing these little sips
    Doing our best to make the best of the worst of it

    Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
    Keep leaning it on in closer
    Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
    And with him before the night is over
    That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
    You better keep on keeping it lit
    'Til we can't remember
    Can't remember what we came here to forget

    Go ahead and check your phone, like I've been checking mine
    Nobody's ex is texting for a rewind
    Looks like it's just me and you
    Falling in love just enough to get us through
    While we're getting through

    Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
    Keep leaning it on in closer
    Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
    And with him before the night is over
    That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
    We better keep on keeping it lit
    'Til we can't remember
    Can't remember what we came here to forget

    Yeah, first of all we came here to forget
    Looks like it's just me and you
    Falling in love just enough to get us through
    While we're getting through

    Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
    Keep leaning it on in closer
    Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
    And with you before the night is over
    That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
    You better keep on keeping it lit
    'Til we can't remember
    Can't remember what we came here to forget

    What we came here to forget
    What we came here to forget
    Baby, baby
    That's what we came here to forget Writer/s: Deric Ruttan, Craig Wiseman
