Yesterday, as I talked with a friend in town,
I forgot to remember that you'd gone.
For a moment, I found myself smiling,
But a moment isn't very long.

An' last night as I danced with a stranger,
An' she held her cheek close to my own,
For a moment, I almost forgot you,
But a moment isn't very long.

Every now an' then I get a chance to smile,
But those every now an' thens just last a little while.
An' tonight I've got a date with a new love,
But I know I'd do just as well at home.
For a moment, maybe I could forget you.
But a moment isn't very long.

Every now an' then I get a chance to smile,
But those every now an' thens just last a little while.
An' tonight I've got a date with a new love,
But I know I'd do just as well at home.
For a moment, maybe I could forget you.
But a moment isn't very long.
