Song Lyrics
(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
When the light gets into your heart, baby

[Chorus]
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 and pretend
It's my beginning
We'll win in the end
I won't harm you
Or touch your defences
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

[Chorus]
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
When you walk away

[Chorus x2]
Oh, will you walk away
Will you walk on by
Come on, call my name
Will you call my name
