Yesterday as I talked with a friend in town
I forgot to remember that you'd gone
For a moment I found myself smilin'
But a moment isn't very long

An' last night as I danced with a stranger
An' she held her cheek close to my own
For a moment I almost forgot you
But a moment isn't very long

Every now an' then I get a chance to smile
But those every now an' then's just last a little while
An' tonight I've got a date with a new love
But I know I'd do just as well at home
For a moment maybe I could forget you
But a moment isn't very long

Every now an' then I get a chance to smile
But those every now an' then's just last a little while
An' tonight I've got a date with a new love
But I know I'd do just as well at home
For a moment maybe I could forget you
But a moment isn't very long
But a moment isn't very long
