Al Stewart – Don't Forget Me lyrics

(Al Stewart/Peter White)

The sun is going down across
The great unknown
Lights come on inside the towers made of stone
A muffled drum plays
Out of sight and all alone
Summer is over

The city lies awake
And breathes electric air
The sailor in the bar
Dreams of a love affair
Young girls seem to shimmer
In fluorescent glare
Summer is over

It's a never ending show
Faces come and go
Like a river
You're a rainbow
Wrapped in gray
Shake the dust away
Like a river

But don't forget me
Don't forget me now
Don't forget me
Don't forget me now

The crowd is spilling
>From the video arcade
The owner of the restaurant
Pulls down the shade
The thunder of the trucks
Is like a cannonade
But now it's over
