Teach Me to Forget

This song is by Willie Nelson and appears on the album Make Way for Willie Nelson (1967).

You taught me how to love with all my heart
With all my soul I trusted you
And now you say we'll have to live apart
A thing I don't know how to do

You said someday I'd find somebody new
And I'll have not one regret
But stay a while if what you say is true
Stay and teach me to forget

You taught me how to worship you alone
And now you say you'll have to go
And people call me on the telephone
Just to say I told you so

I know now that I only learned to live
On the night when first we met
God above will teach me to forgive
But stay and teach me to forget
Please stay and teach me to forget
