This song is by Gabriel Kahane and appears on the album Where Are the Arms (2011).

I was on the side of the road
Shiny traffic beetling by
She picked up a box of my clothes
Offered me a wash and a ride

We collected clovers in a park
Threaded them through our little fingers
She pulled up her shirt and showed me the mark
Where her father's snow white knuckle lingered

And I say now what I said then
Please let me forget you
In some hot one gas station town
Please let me forget you

We came up with names for our kids
Though we'd only met an hour before
Names with an eastern European fit
Frederick, Casimir, and Isidore

At a seaside town we picked at our lunch
Talking of family, the books that we'd read
Back in the car, too nervous to touch
She emptied a bottle of water on my head

And I say now what I said then
Please let me forget you
In some hot one gas station town
Please let me forget you
