(Hey, hey, hey, hey! )

Won't you come see about me?
I'll be alone, dancing, you know it, baby
Tell me your troubles and doubts - giving me everything inside and out
Love's strange - so real in the dark
Think of the tender things that we were working on
Slow change may pull us apart
One a life 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! )

Don't you try to pretend
It's my feeling we'll win in the end
I won't harm you or touch your defenses: vanity; insecurity
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?
Will you walk away?
Or, will you walk away?
Will you walk on by, or call my name?
Will you call my name?

La, la la la la...

When you walk on by will you call my name?
