"Forgettin's So Long" as written by Robert Byrne and Phil Vassar....
One twenty-two fifty nine Oak Drive
Rolls off my tongue like a nursery rhyme
Wooden numbers on the front of your house
Where we fell in love
Little things they stick in my mind
Like they happened yesterday after all this time
The way it turned out
I never would've thought
I'd remember so much

But why is my heart so weak
And my memory so strong
Somebody give me one good reason
Love is too short

And forgettin's so long
Somewhere, someday down the road maybe I won't care
But when something so right goes so worng
Love is too short and forgettin's so long

Is there anyone who would please
Tell me where's my checkbook and my car keys
If it wasn't sewn onto my shoulders
I'da lost my head
Well there's a whole lotta things I forget to do
But I amaze myself when it comes to you
I know nothin' 'bout now
But I know plenty 'bout way back then

'Cause when I think I got it all behind me
And I'm movin' along
You're right there to remind me
Love is too short

And forgettin's so long
Somewhere, someday down the road maybe I won't care
But when something so right goes so worng
Love is too short and forgettin's so long

But why is my heart so weak and my memory so strong
Somebody give me one good reason love is too short

And forgettin's so long
Somewhere, someday down the road maybe I won't care
But when something so right goes so worng
Love is too short and forgettin's so long
Forgettin's so long
Forgettin's so long
