Hey, I’m just tryin’ to forget you
hopin’ maybe you’ll forget to
But I never wanna let you go, just go

This town looks rough, everybody peaked in high school havin’ babies
I find it kind of funny, all the photos you’ve been saving
Molly on a Wednesday, it all looked two times as pretty
Oh… when you left a whole inside this city
This place gets stuck in your teeth
you always taste it
But it might just be your drugs
or anything they’re laced with
Where did you go
when you started changin’ your ways with each taste that you take

Honest I’m done waiting around,
when you are nowhere to be found
and I’m alone, and you’re allowed
When I’m at home, and you are
Woah momma, don’t you ever wanna be alone?
Just be alone.

I saw another place get stuck in your teeth
I can’t erase it
it’s tough to be in love when you’re in love with all these faces
So go on tasting different places
I’ll hold my breath, no I won’t waste it
Won’t complain, when you’re complainin’

That place was stuck in my teeth
But I replaced it
I had it up to here, missin’ all your misbehavin’

Hey, I’m just trying to forget you
Hoping maybe you’ll forget to
But I never wanna let you
But I never wanna let you go
You can miss me if you want to,
I know you don’t, can’t you, won’t you?
But I never wanna let you
I just never wanted you to know
