C F C I still remember where you stood, a page torn from my memory. There's no harm done in that, I guess, G but jaw dropped I looked your way. F G C F You smiled and asked, "What's wrong?", restoring to me my breath. C F G C With my lucidity returning, this was all I could think to say. Chorus F G I did not forget C F It had just been a while C G/B Am I never got used to F G Your eyes and your smile C G/B Am It seemed like 30 years Am Am/G F And not as many days C G/B Am Well have I missed you yet? F G C 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. F G What I once thought was love C Am slips my mind when I think of F G was it real, so long ago. F G 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.
