maybe if i close my eyes a little tighter
i'll forget what you look like

or if i plug my ears a little harder
i'll forget what you sound like

just maybe if i hold my nose a little bit longer
i'll forget what you smell like

i wonder if i scrub my skin a little harder
if i'll forget what your hands feel like

i wish i knew how to forget you
the human wrecking ball that bulldozed my life
the disease that stopped my heart
the anchor stopping me from reaching the surface

i know i won't,
forget you
so i'll rebuild my life
find a new heart
learn how to breathe underwater

i won't forget you
but i will leave you behind
