A song about losing yourself when someone else feels you're worth losing
Twenty-one years and some breakups wise,
But it stings every time that I catch your eye
Yet you act like we're two strange passersby
Pretending you just don't realize it's me

Even still, my mind's refusing
To say you'd make all these dumb excuses
But while I endure all of your abuses,
No, you don't notice that you're losing me

Well, if ignorance is really bliss,
I guess there's something to be said for your forgetfulness
And since you can't recall from whence we came,
Oh please, promise me you'll still remember my name
Someday, when you've let the rest of me slip away...

Now I've lost more than too much sleep,
Thinking of how you lied so easily
While I let you walk all over me
Hoping just once you'd see how it cut so deep, every time

Well, if ignorance is really bliss,
I guess there's something to be said for your forgetfulness
And since you can't recall from whence we came,
Oh please, promise me you'll still remember my name
Someday, when you've let the rest of me slip away...

All these stupid fights replacing starry nights,
Erasing better times still etched in my jaded mind
And I don't know why I hope for pay in kind
When you just show signs that you left it all behind

Well, if ignorance is really bliss,
I guess there's something to be said for your forgetfulness
And since you can't recall from whence we came,
Oh please, promise me you'll still remember my name
Someday, when you've let the rest of me slip away...

One day, when I've said all that I need to say
I'll stay, then stare and smile as you walk away

Hey, you look like this girl who I used to go
With to dance in the waves when the tide got low
She hasn't been here for a while, though...
Well, if you see her around, would you let me know?

Well, if ignorance is really bliss,
I guess there's something to be said for your forgetfulness
And since you can't recall from whence we came,
Oh please, promise me you'll still remember my name
Someday...
