“Don’t You (Forget About Me)” by Simple Minds

“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
Ohhh…

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 and
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

Don’t don’t don’t don’t

Will you stand above me?
Look my way, never love me
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down
Will you recognise me?
Call my name or walk on by
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ohhhh…

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 and security

I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby
Going to take you apart
I’ll put us back together at heart, baby

As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
When you walk away
Oh will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?
Come on, call my name
Will you call my name?

I say:
La la la
la la la la la la la la la lala la la lala la la lala la la lala la la lala la la lala la la lala la la lala la la lala la la la
