(Kim Carnes)

When I pass you on the street
And I wanna yell come back
Don't tell 'em that you know me
And when I'm standin' next to ya'
In a crowded room
And I wanna yell come back
Don't tell 'em that you know me
Don't let on
Don't let on
Don't let on
When they try and drive you out of your head
Just turn instead and say you don't know me

When I call your name out loud in a dream
Don't tell 'em that you know me
And when I look you in the eye
Cause eyes never lie
Don't tell 'em that you know me
Don't let on
Don't let on
Don't let on
When they try and drive you out of your head
Just turn instead and say you don't know me

When I talk too much about you
And they look for my reaction
Don't tell 'em that you know me
And when I try too hard to hide it
I look quick for some distraction
Cause I can't let it show on me
Don't let on
Don't let on
Don't let on
When they try and drive you out of your head
Just turn instead and say you don't know me
Say you don't know me
