Song of forgetting lyrics

DAN
This house and all these rooms
Last Christmas or last year
Out back the Dogwood blooms

DIANA
Do I really live here?

DAN
The paint, the walls
All this glass and wood
You don't recall?

DIANA
How I wish I could

DAN
Our house on Walton Way
The house with the red door
Our trip to San Tropez
The whole week a downpour

NATALIE
My first few steps, and my first lost tooth
What nothing yet?

DIANA
Well to tell the truth

DAN
Sing a song of forgetting
A song of the way things were not
Sing of what's lost to you
The time that you never knew
Sing of not remembering when
Of memories that go unremembered and then
Sing a song of forgetting, again

That day our child was born
Our baby girl's first cry
That gray and drizzly morn
I've never felt so high

DIANA
The day we met
And we shared 2 beers

DAN
Then?

DIANA
I forget.

DAN
But that's 18 years

DIANA (spoken)
That Dr. Mitchell said there might be some memory loss.

DAN (spoken)
Dr. Madden.

DIANA (spoken)
Well, see, there you go.

NATALIE
What a lovely cure
It's a medical miracle
With a mind so pure
That she doesn't know anything

DAN
It's there I'm sure
Cause memories don't die.
The don't die

NATALIE
They die

DAN
Sing a song of forgetting
A song of the way things were not
Sing of what's lost to you
Of times that you never knew

NATALIE
Sing a song of forgetting
A song of the way things were not

What's lost to you
What's lost to you
You never knew

(overlapping)
DIANA
Sing a song of forgetting
A song of the way things were not
Sing of what's lost to you
What's lost to you
What's lost to you
You never knew

ALL
Sing of not remembering when
Of memories that go unremembered and when

DAN
Sing a song of forgetting

NATALIE
Sing a song of forgetting

DIANA
Sing a song of forgetting

ALL
Again
