Lyrics
FORGETTING TO FORGET YOU


I sit on benches and see us,
walk by together.
And I can hear your laughter,
when days were better.
And I still can recall every
minute I had with you.
But I can't remember
not to forgive you.

To forget you, I've tried it all--
Veiled Hindus and China dolls.
Gouged ditches in my arms,
To drain your memory from my heart.

But I keep forgetting to forget you.
I can't remember not to forgive you.
I keep forgetting to forget you.
I can't remember not to forgive you.



I walk through the gutter
with the rats and roaches,
Past sleeping bums
and failed overdoses,
Phantom females with their
appalling approaches--
Alone in the city
as the night encroaches.

To forget you, I've tried it all--
Veiled Hindus and China dolls
Gouged ditches in my arms,
To drain your memory from my heart.

But I keep forgetting to forget you.
I can't remember not to forgive you.
I keep forgetting to forget you.
I can't remember not to forgive you.
