Lies is a four-letter word

Lies is a four-letter word

its four o’clock
i thought we’d make it
tell me something I haven’t heard
they say scars fade
but these won’t
forgive and forget
forgive and forget
harder than it sounds
we’re becoming all you thought we wouldn’t be
poised and perfect
so tell me something I didn’t know
and try to forgive and forget
because I ain’t coming back

you wanted an anthem
you got an airbrushed dream
but did I ever really matter?
Love me or leave me
I guess you chose the latter
I’d say I’m better
But to each his own

"airbrushed dream" Good one!

I reeeeally like the repitiion, and the contrasts (Love me or leave me). Did you think of changing it around so it reads:
"forgive and forget
forget and forgive"? It's just an idea, but it would make it sound like the narrator thinks the notion is ridiculous, which is your point, right?

Oh, and I like the airbrushed dreams thing too, and also "so tell me something I don't know" because it really adds to the character of the poem. :)
