I Hope I Forget

I hope I forget your eyes

And that I couldn't look way.

I hope I forget your smile

Because it makes me wish you'd stay.


I hope I never call you 

When its late and I can't sleep.

Even though it would be a promise

I could never keep.


I hope I spend less time

Dreaming of your hands;

No matter how much i want to hold them,

I know I never can.


I hope I forget how to speak

So that I won't speak of you.

I hope I learn to quit wishing

For things that won't come true.


I hope I forget how to want you

So that I'll stop feeling this way,

And I hopw I forget that I let you go

Because that was my biggest mistake.
