"Whatsername" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
Thought I ran into you down on the street
Then it turned out to only be a dream
I made a point to burn all of the photographs
She went away and then I took a different path
I remember the face
But I can't recall the name
Now I wonder how whatsername has been

Seems that she disappeared without a trace
Did she ever marry old what's his face
I made a point to burn all of the photographs
She went away and then I took a different path
I remember the face
But I can't recall the name
Now I wonder how whatsername has been

Remember, whatever
It seems like forever to go
Remember, whatever
It seems like forever ago
The regrets are useless in my mind
She's in my head
I must confess
The regrets are useless in my mind
She's in my head
So long ago

And in the darkest night
If my memory serves me right
I'll never turn back time

Forgetting you, but not the time

    General CommentWhat an awesome song, like everyone else said.

    Slow and very thoughtful, even though it is teaching you to be thoughtless.

    I think the motto of this song is don't live on regrets. Especially when chasing the unicorn. The unicorn being that person that you so sought your life after in fantasy, and at many cases, this doesn't make it through reality.

    It's funny because I'm not bragging at all, but in my past experience in relationships I've dated or at least almost met up with four strippers and a masseuse that worked at a strip club. I fell in love very hard with one, but she was too messed up to pursue a relationship.

    Sometimes I do think about them, whether I could've done like something different some way or another. But you just have to let go of the regrets. I liked them a lot because for some reason a lot of them were spiritual in nature (not all of them, but few), but the lifestyle and the baggage was immense.

    You just gotta let it go. Just remember the good times rolling out of the experience!
