"Questioningly" as written by and Jeffrey/cummings Hyman....
Questioningly
Her eyes looked at me
And then she spoke
Aren't you some one I used to know
And weren't we lovers a long time ago?
Looked at her close
Forced her into view
Yes, I said, you're a girl
That I, once may have knew
But I don't love you anymore
What do you want to talk to me for?
You should have just let me walk by
Memories make us cry

In the morning, I'm at work on time
My boss, he tells me
That I'm doing fine
When I'm going home
Whiskey bottle
Movie on TV
Memories make me cry
And I'm alone
Just me
Just me
Questioningly

But I don't love you anymore
Why do you want to talk to me for?
You should have just let me walk by
Memories make us cry

Looked at her close
Forced her into view
Yes, I said
You're a girl
That I, once may have knew

Questioningly
Her eyes looked at me
And then she spoke
Aren't you someone that I used to know
And weren't we lovers a long time ago?

    General CommentThis is a very much overlooked Ramones song, and probably their best heartbreak song, if you ask me. The slide guitar is very George Harrison-esque, and the whole thing sounds beautiful. It's a huge surprise to find this on Road to Ruin.

    General CommentOne of many Ramones songs that makes me cry!

    "But I don't love you anymore
    What do you want to talk to me for?
    You should have just let me walk by"

    Now being married for eight years it makes me think of marriage... I love my wife but sometimes she seems like the girl in this song, so far away...

    "Memories make us cry" <-- that's the reminder of how it was when we first married...
