You pass me by and you don't even stop to say hello
Don't know why I've learned to love you so
Each night it seems I hear you say your love will never die
I wake from dreams you pass me by.
When you are lonely some day you'll learn
Just what it means to live in dreams of love that's unreturned
A love so sweet that vanished with the sunshine in the sky
Each time we meet you pass me by.
--- Instrumental ---
You pass me by and now I know that my hopes are all in vain
Here am I alone on memory lane
I hope and pray that the one you love will never make you cry
Then turn away and pass me by.
I keep your memory locked in my heart
Forever there to help me bear the lonely tears that start
I might have known our love was only meant to be a lie
Oh, heart of stone you pass me by...
