Lyrics

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh-ooh, ooh-woh

Won't you come see about me?
I'll be alone, dancing, you know it, baby
Tell me your troubles and doubts
Give them everything, inside and out and

Love's strange, so real in the dark
Think of the tender things that we were working on
Slow change may pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart, baby

Don't you forget about me
Don't, don't, don't, don't
Don't you forget about me

Will you stand above me?
Look my way? Never love me?
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down

Will you recognize me?
Call my name or walk on by?
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh-ooh, ooh-woh

Don't you try and pretend
It's my feeling we'll win in the end, I won't
Harm you or touch your defenses
Vanity, insecurity uh-uh!

Don't you forget about me
I'll be alone, dancing, you know it, baby
Going to take you apart
I'll put us back together at heart, baby

Don't you forget about me
Don't, don't, don't, don't
Don't you forget about me

As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
And you walk away
Or will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?

Come on, call my name
Will you call my name?
I say:

Ooh la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

When you walk on by
And you call my name
