I Don't Remember (revisited)

by Thomas K. Hunt

I was ready just a second ago
Now I can't remember
I mean I really don't know

I wish I could remember
How could I forget?
Maybe I haven't lived that moment yet

My short term has disappeared
after living with me for so many years
What was I talking about?
I can't hear you, you'll have to shout

I may remember the face but forget the name
Lately I'm just not the same
There's no point to bitch or complain
Sooner or later we all have to leave the game

It's happening a bit different these days
I take longer to heal and I'm running out of ways
I've heard what would happen and they were right
I find it difficult to sleep at night

Now, I can't remember what I was going to do
Could someone please give me a clue
I think I remember this place
I think I remember her smiling face

I apologize, I don't remember you
I'm sorry, was I suppose to?
It's all in the eyes my friend
I'll know them when I see them again

I've heard this is natural for some
They say that nothing can be done
I can't remember what we were talking about
Whoo hold on, let's take a time out

If you take it slow and from the top
Tell it to the end and don't stop
If you tell it to me like that my friend
I'll stay and listen to the very end

My short term has disappeared
After having it for so many years
I think I know what I'm talking about
Now I know what it's like to live without

I'm still all here don't get me wrong
I'll read you a poem and sing you a song
This isn't really about me at all
although some day I'll hear the call

I'm sorry, what was your name again?
Telll me again my friend
Please excuse my memory
It's not what it used to be

My short term has disappeared
It's like a file that's been cleared
Memories have taken flight
I don't remember a thing tonight
