Thought I ran into you, down on the street,
Then it turned out to only be a dream.

I made a point to burn all of the photographs,
she went away and then I took a different path,
I remember the face but I can't recall the name.
Now i wonder how whatsername has been.

Verse 2 lyrics:

Seems like she disappeared without a trace,
did she ever marry old whats his face?

Riff 1 (when vocals come in):
  
    G5               A5               D5               B5

E|--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-------------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--|

Remember, whatever it seems like forever ago

Repeat interlude riff

Then with riff 1:

The regrets are useless in my mind, she's in my head
(I must confess)
The regrets are useless in my mind, she's in my head 
(I must confess)
And in that darkest night, if my memory serves me right
I'll never turn back time, forgetting you but not the time.

Then just play intro riff twice.

Easy but beautiful song, and I'm sure off the accuracy of this tab.

Enjoy!

This is a HORRIBLE tablature. You completely missed the solo and verses near the end of the song. These are terrible tabs.
