  • Let me take my fuckin' bracelet off

    You want me to forget you
    Okay, forget me too
    You tell me you hate me
    Baby, yeah, I bet you do

    Damn
    I saw you walk in the room and I tried my best
    Not to panic while I'm lookin' for the back door
    I smell the perfume and it's obvious
    I'm gonna stay and put my key in the back more
    I can't, I can't, I can't pretend to forget you
    The reason I punch a hole in the wall back home
    And then, and then, and then a couple hours later we're in Room 29 at The Chateau

    I left before you woke up
    I don't feel right (see your soul burn)

    You want me to forget you
    Okay, forget me too
    You tell me you hate me
    Baby, yeah, I bet you do
    I'm keepin' you waitin'
    But I won't wait on you
    You want me to forget you
    Okay, forget me too

    I've wasted so much time
    Waitin' around for your phone calls every night
    My bad dreams are silk screens
    'Cause I taste blood when you bleed
    It's eatin' me alive
    We'd both be better off alone
    Still think I'd get you on the phone
    With one last breath in me
    I'd die before I'd let you leave

    You left before I woke up
    Why don't I ever see you sober?

    You want me to forget you
    Okay, forget me too
    You tell me you hate me
    Baby, yeah, I bet you do
    I'm keepin' you waitin'
    But I won't wait on you
    You want me to forget you
    Okay, forget me too

    Hey you
    Tell me why you do the things that make me hate you?
    It's an emotional kaleidoscope when I face you
    Permanent calligraphy, I just tattooed your name on me forever

    You want me to forget you
    Okay, forget me too
    You tell me you hate me
    Baby, yeah, I bet you do
    I'm keepin' you waitin'
    But I won't wait on you
    You want me to forget you
    Okay, forget me too
