you make me feel like a naked woman sometimes
when you talk about the past
my love is getting stronger at night
and yours didn't even last
i should burn all those old memories
inhale the smoke till i cough you out
place you on the sidewalk
and let the other couples shout

i just don't want you to forget me

holding your hand is like holding my hand
only better
you're a lightning that struck
and forever changed my weather
and i should drown all those old memories
and drink the lake and flush you down
my place is on the sidewalk
with a paperbag crown

i just don't want you to forget me

when our smiles touch they turn into one
for the whole world to kiss
no man ever stayed sane
with a woman like you to miss
and i should choke all those old memories
till they turn blue
chase them down the sidewalk
running away from you to be with you

i just don't want you to forget me!
