‘Forget About Me’
A little dark, but dark is what I do. This is entitled ‘Forget About Me’.
I won’t tell you, ‘Remember Me’
Because I know that I
Am not the man I used to be
And at the end I die.
I won’t ask you to cry for me,
I’ll hope it doesn’t hurt,
Here at the end of everything
When I’m laid in the dirt.
I won’t say, ‘Love, please pray for me’,
I won’t ask you to stay.
I’ll only hold you back you see
As you watch me decay.
This is the end of life for me,
And you don’t understand
That I don’t want you next to me
Just clinging to my hand.
You have to stay away from me
I’m just not good for you.
I’m not the man I seem to be
And I’ll drag you down too.
No you should not remember me,
I am not worth your time.
I’ll have no final legacy,
No epitaph in rhyme.
All I will ask is ‘Forget Me’,
I have nothing of worth.
Don’t keep me in your memory
When I’m put in the Earth.
I know it isn’t fair of me
To tell you to let go,
But I don’t understand you see
What makes you want to know.
What is it that you see in me,
What keeps you by my side?
Why is it that you want to be
The breaker of my pride.
I’m telling you you’re killing me
By not doing as I say.
My life, my soul, eternity
Should only take away.
And so, if you must think of me,
Feel only burning hate.
That’s all that He will see in me
If I make it to His gate.
