Lyrics:

(Verse)
Thought I Ran Into You Down On The Street
Then It Turned Out To Only Be A Dream

(Chorus)
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)
It Seems That You Disappeared Without A Trace
Did She Ever Marry Old What’s His Face

(Chorus)
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)
Remember
Whatever
It Seems Like Forever Ago
Remember
Whatever
It Seems Like Forever Ago

(Chorus)
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 So Long Ago

(Chorus)
And In The Darkest Night
If My Memory Serves Me Right
I’ll Never Turn Back Time
Forgetting You But Not The Time
