lyrics

The Forgetting Place

Up the road just a ways, there's a forgetting place
Where thoughts disappear without a trace
I go there sometimes when she enters my mind
And I need help driving her away, oh,
When I need help driving her away
The lighting is low, music's sad and it's slow
And cigarette smoke dances in the air
The waitress is sweet and she brings me my drink
And sits in front of my chair, oh,
She sits it in front of my chair
And we go if we want to forget /What we know if we have more regret /Than we know what to do with
It's a solemn retreat from things that won't let you be
When all you want is to be left alone
Or a drunkard's delight, a safe place in the night
For those who don't want to go home, no,
For those who don't want to go home
And we go if we want to forget / What we know if we have more regret / Than we know what to do with
