Sometimes I Forget

© 1999 – 2015 Aaron Traffas (BMI) and Chris Goering (BMI)

I still remember where you stood, a page torn from my memory.
There’s no harm done in that, I guess,
but jaw dropped I looked your way.
You smiled and asked, “What’s wrong?”, restoring to me my breath.
With my lucidity returning, this was all I could think to say.

I did not forget
It had just been a while
I never got used to
Your eyes and your smile
It seemed like 30 years
And not as many days
Well have I missed you yet?
Sometimes I forget

I still remember how I stared, picking up my pieces.
You laughed that laugh that took me back and shattered my world again.
I’m only a fool for you and should have known seeing you like this
would wash away all the work I’d done. I feel now like I did then.
What I once thought was love
slips my mind when I think of
was it real, so long ago.
I can’t remember what I’ll never know.

I still remember how I felt the day you sent me reeling.
You smiled and you drove away with the heart you took from me.
I didn’t sleep at all; I was sure that I could call.
Now it’s clear that I’m just another one of your broken memories.

I will not forget, even though it may be a while.
I never got used to your eyes and your smile.
Even after 30 years I’ll still be counting days.
Have I missed you yet? Sometimes I forget

You know, sometimes I forget.
