Remember Me

  • written by Rickie Lee Jones


    With my face against the glass
    I call your name as you walk past
    You look, but you see yourself
    I’ll give you all the things I’ve got
    I know it’s late, I know it’s hot,
    But don’t you hang up,
    and don’t you tell lies.

    Don’t you know you’re blowing away?
    Don’t you go before you Remember Me…

    In a border town near Mexico
    I took your ring long ago
    Now the storm clouds have filled your sweet eyes
    And there’s a storm that won’t abide
    It’s torn everything inside
    Of the sweet heart that once was my home.

    Don’t you know you’re blowing away?
    Don’t you go before you Remember Me
    Don’t you know you’re blowing away?
    Don’t you go before you Remember Me

    Darling, this storm will pass away
    I pray for you every day.
