Song Of Forgetting Lyrics

DAN
This house and all these rooms
Last Christmas or last year
Out back the dogwood blooms

DIANA
Do I really live here?

DAN
The paint, the walls
All this glass and wood
You don't recall?

DIANA
How I wish I could

DAN
Our house on Walton Way
The house with the red door
Our trip to Saint-Tropez
The whole week of downpour

NATALIE
My first few steps
And my first lost tooth
What, nothing yet?

DIANA
To tell the truth....

DAN
Sing a song of forgetting
A song of the way things were not
Sing if what's lost to you
Of times that you never knew

Sing of not remembering when
Of mem'ries that go unremembered and then
Sing a song of forgetting
Again

That day our child was born
Our baby girl's first cry
That grey and drizzly morn
I never felt so high

DIANA
The day we met and we shared two beers

DAN
Then?

DIANA
I forget

DAN
But that's nineteen years....

NATALIE
What a lovely cure
It's a medical miracle
With a mind so pure
That she doesn't know anything

DAN
It's there, I'm sure
'Cause mem'ries don't die

NATALIE
Die

DAN
They don't die

NATALIE
They die

DIANA
I try

DAN
Sing a song of forgetting

NATALIE
Sing a song of forgetting

DIANA
Sing a song of forgetting

DAN
A song of the way things were not

NATALIE
A song of the way things were not

DIANA
The way things were not

DAN
Sing of what's lost to you

DIANA, NATALIE
What's lost to you
What's lost to you

DAN
Of times that you never knew

DIANA, NATALIE
What's lost to you
You never knew

DAN, DIANA, NATALIE
Sing of not remembering when
Of mem'ries that go unremembered and then

DAN
Sing a song of forgetting

NATALIE
Sing a song of forgetting

DIANA
Sing a song of forgetting

DAN, DIANA, NATALIE
Again...
