Natural (Forgive, Forget)

Forget
Every bad thing
I’ve said up till now.

It gets worse from here.

Forgive me for going astray.
Forgive me for not going your way.
But don’t forget what I’m about to say.
I won’t apologize for being me.
Living a lie just ain’t natural.

We lie in bed
Cooling off from the make-up sex we had.
Then you turn over
Trying to incite my anger once more
Until it gets to the point
Where I want to pack my bags and go.
Maybe I’ll just live
With my mama till this all blows over.
No really, you’re the one who’s gonna go.

So get away.

Forgive
Every little sin
I’ve committed up till now.

It gets worse from here.

Forgive me for going astray.
Forgive me for not going your way.
But don’t forget what I’m about to say.
I won’t apologize for being me.
Living a lie just ain’t natural.

So you throw
All of my shit on the floor
And get all mad
That I am not the one to go.
Let me tell ya
That nothing’s fair in love and war.
And making a damn mess
Ain’t gonna settle this score.

Get outta my face.

Forgive me for going astray.
Forgive me for not going your way.
But don’t forget what I’m about to say.
I won’t apologize for being me.
Living a lie just ain’t natural.

Like a cat can’t walk on two feet
You cannot just expect me
To lie here while my heart takes a beating.
It’s not in my nature to do.

And now
We are on the telephone.
Just this once
I cannot pretend I am not home.
You tell me
On the other line
That our life is just fine
But you do not care
That you have told a lie.
Oh don’t you love the sound of the dial tone?

Forgive me for hanging up the phone.
Forget me ‘cause I’m moving on.
But don’t forget me when you’re all alone.
I won’t sell my soul for love.
I’m already long gone.
Gone.
