Lyrics of

Do you remember the name

Do you remember the scene
Remember the scene of the crime
The scene of the crime of a love
A crime of a love gone down

Do you remember the time
Remember the time of the year
The time of the year was the spring
The year was the spring of our ruin

Let's assume that some folks may be expendable
The better is the enemy of the good
Dont'cha ask perfection of your trophy wife
Dont'cha take no chances with your trophy life

Do you remember the one
Remember the one in a million
The one in a million affair
The one with the glorious prospects

Do you remember the shade
The shade of the sky which is burning
Black was the shade in retreat
Blue was the color returning

Let's imagine some guy driving a coffee truck
Yet he dares to dream the impossible dream
Better have some answers for your trophy wife
Better not get cozy with your trophy life

Do you remember the face
The face of such graceful dimension
The one that you wore in the world
It was such a lovely invention

Do you remember the name
Remember the name of the man
The name of the man who tried hard
'Immemorious' was his name-o
