LYRICS & MUSIC
(words & music by S. Kesler - C. Feathers)
I forgot to remember to forget her, I can't seem to get her off my mind. I thought I'd never miss her, But I found out somehow I think about her almost all the time. The day she went away I made myself a promise That I'd soon forget we ever met. But something sure is wrong, 'Cause I'm so blue and lonely. I forgot to remember to forget.
The day she went away I made myself a promise That I'd soon forget we ever met, Well, but something sure is wrong, 'Cause I'm so blue and lonely. I forgot to remember to forget.
