The last several months have been an absolute roller coaster for Blake Shelton and that personal life drama has definitely influenced his latest song "Came Here to Forget".

It’s been 18 months since fans have been able to enjoy new music from Blake Shelton. The long wait is finally over, Shelton released his new single Came Here To Forget from his upcoming studio album “If I’m Honest”.  The song was written by Craig Wiseman and Deric Ruttan and production was completed by Scott Hendricks.

The track offers up an intimate view of a couple’s encounter at a bar. “I’ve had a lot of music over the years but I don’t think I’ve ever had a song before that’s such a direct look into my life,” confessed Shelton. “That’s why I’m so excited about this particular song.”

Here are the lyrics to “Came Here to Forget”:

Girl you’re getting over him and I’m getting over her
The eyes have it made, ain’t gotta say a word
Misery loves company, that’s why it’s you and me
Buying each other drinks, back at the bar, as thick as thieves
Stealing these little sips
Doing our best to make the best of the worst of it

Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
Keep leaning it on in closer
Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
And with him before the night is over
That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
We better keep on keeping it lit
‘Til we can’t remember
Can’t remember what we came here to forget

Go ahead and check your phone, like I’ve been checking mine
Nobody’s ex texting for a rewind
Looks like it’s just me and you
Fall in love just enough to get us through
What we’re getting through

Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
Keep leaning it on in closer
Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
And with him before the night is over
That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
We better keep on keeping it lit
‘Til we can’t remember
Can’t remember what we came here to forget
Ya, it’s what we came here to forget

Looks like it’s just me and you
Fall in love just enough to get us through
What we’re getting through

Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
Keep leaning it on in closer
Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
And with him before the night is over
That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
We better keep on keeping it lit
‘Til we can’t remember
Can’t remember what we came here to forget

What we came here to forget
What we came here to forget
Hey, hey
That’s what we came here to forget

Shelton is currently on the road with his Blake Shelton 2016 Tour Presented by Gildan.  “Came Here to Forget” reached the Top 3 on the Billboard Country Music chart in May of 2016 providing Blake with yet another Country Music hit.
