I wish I could forget you, but I won't 
I wish I loved another, but I don't 
It's just the same, day after day 
Your memory keeps getting in my way 
But I'm hoping I will be alright 
But I don't even sleep at night 
I close my eyes I see your face 
Your memory keeps getting in my way 

I don't know why I can't forget you 
I don't see why I should let you 
Keep messing up my mind with all those thoughts of yesterday 
Your memory keeps getting in my way 

It's easy for someone to lie 
I'm saying I'll forget you and I'll try 
Here's hoping that I will someday 
Your memory keeps getting in my way 

I don't know why I can't forget you 
I don't see why I should let you 
Keep messing up my mind with all those thoughts of yesterday 
Your memory keeps getting in my way
