We all do our best to make the best of the worst of it.
There are times that we just need to get away from it all.
We go where our minds can take a break.
Ex’s we want to get over,
Family who doesn’t feel like family anymore,
Losing someone you held close,
That something you never thought would happen to you.
Misery loves company,
So we find somewhere, someone or something to numb the pain.
Where we don’t have to think about our everyday reality.
Whether it’s a bar, beach, or just a drive in your car.
It might even be a person.
Someone you know will help take your mind off of what’s hurting most and just put a smile on your face.
We all have things that we want to forget.
We all have places we go, things we do, people we know that are going to help us forget.
So we salt the rim,
We get even her and with him.
We do a thing that feels right at the time.
Lean in and kiss someone we probably shouldn’t have.
We have another drink.
We say something that you know you shouldn’t have.
But it takes the pain away for awhile.
We fall in love just enough to get us through what we’re getting through.
We do all these things to take the pain away.
We do these things until we can’t remember what we came here to forget.
With the hopes that we will forget forever.
