I Thought I Never Would Forget Lyrics

I went back in time today
A box I thought I'd thrown away
Had fallen off the basement shelf
I tripped and almost hurt myself

Scattered there across the floor
A New Year's Eve hat from '94
Ticket stubs to Billy Joel
And pictures from the Sugar Bowl

Some of these souvenirs I remember
Mostly I don't
It's funny how time reduces a keepsake
To a footnote

The where's and the whens
That meant so much then
Have gracefully moved along
My memory had mercy on me and let me go on
Considering everything you meant
I thought I never would forget

Here's us dancing on your birthday
July 29th or 28th
The song was 'Always and Forever'
I'm not sure but I remember

That's the night we first made love
The passion captured both of us
It held us then it set us free
This is all that's left of you and me

A cardboard treasure chest
With a diary of two lovers
Now it's a dusty old box
No different from the others

The where's and the whens
That meant so much then
Have gracefully moved along
My memory had mercy on me and let me go on
Considering everything you meant
I thought I never would forget

My memory had mercy on me and let me go on
Considering everything you meant
I thought I never would forget
