"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 CommentIts about being obsessed with the idea of someone, but then you can't let them go, years later, when you know that it's really dumb to still have feelings for this person that turned out to not give a shit about you. You try as hard as you can to let them go, but every once in a while they pop back up in your head and you feel just as obsessed. I think it's bullshit that he doesn't remember her name, drugs make you forget a lot, but not someone you were obsessed with
