"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Jimmy Eat World - If You Don't, Don't

What’s wrong baby?
Don’t they treat you like they should?
Did you take them for it, for every penny that you could?

We once walked out on the beach, and once I almost touched your hand..
oh how I dreamed to finally say such things than only to pretend..

Don’t you know I’m thinking (‘know I’m thinking)...
driving 4:05 past midnight,
‘you know I miss you (don’t you know that I miss you?)...
Ninth and Ash on a Tuesday night.

I would write to you from a museum aisle, a toast to you —your whisper, your smile..
up the stairs at Weatherford, a ghost each place I hide…

If you don’t don’t, why would you say so?
Would you mean this, please, if it happens?
If you don’t know, why would you say so?
Won’t you get your story straight?
If you don’t, well honey why’d you just say so,
cause I need this now more than I ever did…
If you don’t, well honey then you don’t.

I left you waiting (I know I left you waiting)
at the “least could we be friends…”
‘should’ve never started (never started)—ain’t that the way it always ends.

All my life I’ll try,
today there’s so much I felt I should say but
even if your heart would listen, I doubt I could explain.

If you don’t don’t know why would you say so?
Would you mean this, please, if it happens?
If you don’t know, why would you say so?
Won’t you get your story straight?
Well if you don’t, no honey why’d you just say so,
Cause I need this now more than I ever did, did…
If you don’t, well honey then you don’t
If you don’t, well honey then you don’t….

So here we are now,
a sip of wine, a sip of water.
Someday maybe,
maybe someday we’ll be smarter.
And I’m sorry that I’m such a mess,
I drank all my money could get and
I took everything that you let me had
and then I never loved you back.

If you don’t don’t know why would you say so?
Would you mean this, please, if it happens?
If you don’t know, why would you say so?
Won’t you get your story straight?
If you don’t, no honey why’d you just say so,
cause I need this now, yeah, need this, need this..
If you don’t, well honey then you don’t..
if you don’t, (don’t) honey then you don’t..
Well if you don’t, well honey then you don’t….

If you don’t know, honey, honey then you don’t.
