Josh Abbott Band - Amnesia Lyrics




If I had amnesia
I wouldn't know how much I need ya
And I wouldn't have to see ya every night
When I turn out the lights and close my eyes
Wouldn't have to forget you
Or even know I'd ever met you
I wouldn't have to regret you
Or let you wreck me one more time

What I don't know wouldn't hurt me
If I could lose my memory
I think maybe I'd be fine
If I just lost my mind
I wouldn't have to replace you
I could just erase you
And I wouldn't have to know how much I need ya

If I had amnesia
Something stronger than tequila
A little pill that would lead you right outta my head
And get me numb instead
If I went a little crazy
The movie got a little hazy
I wouldn't want you save me
Or maybe you can play me one more time

What I don't know wouldn't hurt me
If I could lose my memory
I think maybe I'd be fine
If I just lost my mind
I wouldn't have to replace you
I could just erase you
And I wouldn't have to know how much I need ya

And if I woke up tomorrow
Wasn't thinking about yesterday
And you were just a stranger
It wouldn't kill me to watch you walk away

And what I don't know wouldn't hurt me
If I could lose my memory
I think maybe I'd be fine
If I just lost my mind
I wouldn't have to replace you
I could just erase you
And I wouldn't have to know how much I need ya
If I had amnesia
If I had amnesia

    I was so dumb. I shouldn't have been so scared, I should have just taken a chance and see where it went. Now it's too late and I might regret it my whole life

  3. Caitlyn Anderson

    I want amnesia for this :me and my fiancee breaking up me, my best friend for 6 years had a fight now we're not friend anymore, i lost everyone of my friends, everyone i LOVED has hurt, yelled at me or died my dad wont stop yelling at me for no reason, when i was born i was a mistake, i have been bullied since i was 3 and now i just want it all to STOP it hurts deep inside in a place that was once thawed, happy, loving, even innocent but now its dark just really dark that even i want to lose myself in that darkness that use to hold everything i ever love.

    You may think that you will never get over it. But you also thought that it would last forever.

    Marco Reyes

    That’s actually very deep and poetic. So true.

    Great song. It sucks not living out west anymore. I can't see amazing "Red Dirt" bands play ANYWHERE here on the east coast.

    Dan Johns

    +Rick Zachary

    Feel your pain, I'm a Texan in Boston. Don't know what part of the east coast you're at, but Josh is gonna be in Boston on 1/27. Aaron Watson on 1/21, too. If they're coming here, I'm sure they're probably hitting a couple other cities in the region too. I saw Stoney and Randy Rogers out here last winter. It doesn't happen often, but the Red Dirt boys do get out here from time to time.

    Rick Zachary

    +Dan Johns I'm in the Niagara Falls area. Thanks for the info.

    Aztec Girl

    +Dan Johns I love Aaron Watson i saw him at birthday bash and got on stage with him ...keep country music country...

  51. Justin Selby

    wtf is this shit! Josh Abbott please stop trying to be mainstream! your not Luke Bryan! this new type of crap is well crap, it's pop! I'm disappointed.

    Ashley Boeche

    This song is great you judge mental prick!!!!!!

  52. Kaitlyn guy

    I heard this song whille driving 5 hours back to my home town and the whole way home I was saying "amnesia" so I wouldn't forget what it was called so I could listen to it when I get home!

  53. Christian Schroeder

    had the man I have been with for quite sometime decide that the baby we have made and myself are not what he wants. no sorry no feeling towards the situation at all. just woke up today and said I don't want this I want my ex back. it's it lovely. amnesia would be great!!

    MrJ Pink

    Lol wait the hell u had a baby together and left each other and now u want him back? Am I understanding this correctly lol

  54. Mercedes Mosher

    just got dumped.. after 10 months and this song helps so much

    michael Beaver

    me too, except for 1 year and 3 months

    Kaelyn Clarkson

    +alexis creed same girl.. I'm literally dying right now.. Our anniversary was literally yesterday...

  55. CHODcast

    This would have made a great theme song for that movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Great song. Whole album is solid as always from JAB

  56. kevin lacey

    Nice Song!

  57. Poodle B

    Makes me sad that this band has been out so much longer than the public interest of this song. And in fact, they have equally as good if not some even better songs. Happy this band is getting some mainstream play!!!

  58. Aaron Tavarez

    If I had amnesia
    I wouldn't know how much I need ya
    And I wouldn't have to see ya every night
    When I turn out the lights and close my eyes
    Wouldn't have to forgive you
    Or even know I'd ever met you
    I wouldn't have to regret you
    Or let you wreck me one more time

    What I don't know wouldn't hurt me
    If I could lose my memory
    I think maybe I'd be fine
    If I just lost my mind
    I wouldn't have to replace you
    I could just erase you
    And I wouldn't have to know how much I need ya

    If I had amnesia
    Something stronger than tequila
    A little pill that would lead you right outta my head
    Gimme them instead
    If I went a little crazy
    The movie got a little hazy
    I wouldn't want you save me
    Or maybe you can play me one more time

    What I don't know wouldn't hurt me
    If I could lose my memory
    I think maybe I'd be fine
    If I just lost my mind
    I wouldn't have to replace you
    I could just erase you
    And I wouldn't have to know how much I need ya

    And if I woke up tomorrow
    Wasn't thinking about yesterday
    And you were just a stranger
    It wouldn't kill me to watch you walk away

    And what I don't know wouldn't hurt me
    If I could lose my memory
    I think maybe I'd be fine
    If I just lost my mind
    I wouldn't have to replace you
    I could just erase you
    And I wouldn't have to know how much I need ya
    If I had amnesia
    If I had amnesia

  59. Katie Hayner

    Love this song!!! It's so well written, it gets me in my feelings for trying to just get over life

  60. Shaw S

    after listening to this, i think i'll go grab that bottle of tequila. i mean damn, i can empathize with whoever wrote this song. i absolutely love, and fucking despise this song at the same time. @JoshAbbottBand, good job. it's hard to find music like this nowadays.

    John Nieto

    Shaw S fixing to drop a couple of shots of Tekillya!! This song hits home at so many levels.

  61. Stephanie Munoz

    Obsessed with this song!!!!!!!!

  62. Phaedra Hunt

    Honestly such a sentimental song for me...The first time I heard this my dad played it in his truck for me...It brought my dad to tears...Every single time he litsens to it he cries and my dad is not a man to show emotion...ever! My parents are having a rough time and this song is just too much for my dad! It showed me just what kind of a man my dad was and how much he loves my mother...Although they've been living apart for 4 months now. Such a gorgeous song!

  63. Derek Norris

    Anybody know what tuning this is?

  64. Miranda Phillips

    love this song listen to it every time it comes on Sxsm the highway

  65. Kamryn Brown

    Best song on the face of this earth

  66. Morgan Hollister

    honestly, one of the best work Josh Abbott Band has done. i can't believe more people don't know about them.. they're AMAZING!!

    Scott Kolich

    mostly cause they're too country for country radio

  67. James Sulc Jr.

    BEST SONG EVER Same here i will be fine if i lost my mind

    Vanessa

    I've already lost my mind :-)

  68. sar0235

    Remember the old Josh Abbott? This music is too mainstream and so odd to hear coming from this band.

    Freedom1645

    unless you actually know the man which you dont please stop acting like you knew his type of music. he's been playing this music for a long ass time.

    Tammy Martinez

    Josh writes all of his songs straight from the heart! .

    Garrett Tacha

    +sar0235
    I agree with you. His new stuff is breaking the barrier of mainstream....but this album wasn't meant to be a "Texas" album so to speak. This album was something that Josh himself needed to do so that he could get some things off his chest. As for Freedom1645, don't be too harsh. Abbott hasn't been playing this type of music "for a long ass time". She's Like Texas album....Small Town Family Dream album.....that's definitely some good country tunes that have absolutely no mainstream riffs in them. This album does break that barrier....but like I said, this album is on a personal level....not so much on a Texas level. It needed to be done. Nonetheless....I am enjoying the album so far and I have no doubt in my mind that the "old" style will return on future albums....this album just needed to be a bit different for his own personal reasons.

  69. Josh Balderas

    these lyrics are deep felt. crazy how love makes us people never forget the feelings that we have for someone we truly love. sad thing is they don't all feel for us the same way or we would all have that fairytale love and ending.

  70. ashufeld

    What I don't know wouldn't hurt me
    If I could lose my memory
    I think maybe I'd be fine 
    If I just lost my mind
    I wouldn't have to replace you
    I could just erase you
    And I wouldn't have to know how much I need ya


    I am in love, I have it stuck on replay.

  71. Samantha Marie

    I really wish I can find this song for my phone!!!!

  72. Sydney Martinez

  74. Michael Franzese

  76. CountryB30

    I would need amnesia..and bury me six feet under ground, I would take a ride on an atom bomb..singing this song, a massive wave to take me home, but in my head..she'll never leave so
    I'll just remember her cause I will never let her go!

  77. Richard Fulton

    Just sent it to the love of my life. My true feelings.
