what ever happened? lyrics – the strokes

i want to be forgotten,
and i don’t want to be reminded.
you say “please don’t make this harder.”
no, i won’t yet.

i wanna be beside her.
she wanna be admired.
you say “please don’t make this harder.”
no, i won’t yet.

oh dear, is it really all true?
did they offend us and they want it to sound new?
top ten ideas for countdown shows…
whose culture is this and does anybody know?
i wait and tell myself “life ain’t chess,”
but no one comes in and yes, you’re alone…

you don’t miss me, i know.

oh tennessee, what did you write?
i come together in the middle of the night.
oh that’s an ending that i can’t write, ’cause
i’ve got you to let me down.

i want to be forgotten,
and i don’t want to be reminded.
you say “please don’t make this harder.”
no, i won’t yet.

i want to be beside her.
she wanna be admired.
you say “please don’t make this harder.”
no, i won’t yet…
