  • Days ache and nights are long
    Two years and still, you're not gone
    Guess I'm still holdin' on
    Drag my name through the dirt
    Somehow, it doesn't hurt though
    Guess you're still holdin' on

    You told your friends you want me dead
    And said that I did everything wrong
    And you're not wrong
    Well, I'll take all the vitriol
    But not the thought of you movin' on

    'Cause I'm not ready
    To find out you know how to forget me
    I'd rather hear how much you regret me
    And pray to God that you never met me
    Than forget me
    Oh, I hate to know I made you cry
    But love to know I cross your mind, babe, oh, I
    Even after all, it'd still wreck me
    To find out you know how to forget me
    Even after all this time

    Days ache and nights are grey
    My heart is still your place, babe
    Guess I still feel the same
    Know you can't stand my face
    Some scars you can't erase, babe
    Guess you still feel the same

    Well, I'll take all the vitriol
    But not the thought of you movin' on

    'Cause I'm not ready
    To find out you know how to forget me
    I'd rather hear how much you regret me
    And pray to God that you never met me
    Than forget me
    Oh, I hate to know I made you cry
    But love to know I cross your mind, babe, oh, I
    Even after all, it'd still wreck me
    To find out you know how to forget me
    Even after all this time

    I'm not ready to let you forget me
    To let you forget me, to let you for-, oh
    I'm not ready to let you forget me
    To let you forget me, to let you for-, oh (even after all this time)
    I'm not ready to let you forget me
    To let you forget me, to let you for-, oh
    I'm not ready to let you forget me
    To let you forget me, to let you for-, oh

    'Cause I'm not ready
    To find out you know how to forget me
    I'd rather hear how much you regret me
    And pray to God that you never met me
    Than forget me
    Oh, I hate to know I made you cry
    But love to know I cross your mind, babe, oh, I
    Even after all, it'd still wreck me
    To find out you know how to forget me
    Even after all this time Writer/s: Benjamin Alexander Kohn, Lewis Marc Capaldi, Michael Ross Pollack, Peter Norman Cullen Kelleher, Philp John Plested, Tom Barnes
