Yellowcard – Don't You Forget About Me lyrics

[Originally by Simple Minds]

Won't you come see about me?
I'll be alone, dancing you know

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 can pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart

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

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?)
When you walk away

Will you walk on by?
Will you call my name?

La la la...

    I was a senior in high school when this song came out. I can hear it on the radio and it is like a Time Machine, it takes me right back there to my youth with my whole life ahead of me. It also reminds me of my high school sweetheart. Such a crazy, happy and free time. No responsibility except for myself! I can't hear this song without smiling.
