Richard Starkey

I LISTEN FOR YOUR FOOTSTEPS COMING UP THE DRIVE,
LISTEN FOR YOUR FOOTSTEPS, BUT THEY DON'T ARRIVE.
WAITING FOR YOUR KNOCK, DEAR, ON MY OLD FRONT DOOR;
I DON'T HEAR IT.
DOES IT MEAN YOU DON'T LOVE ME ANY MORE?

I HEAR THE CLOCK A-TICKING ON THE MANTLE SHELF
SEE THE HANDS A-MOVING, BUT I'M BY MYSELF.
I WONDER WHERE YOU ARE TONIGHT AND WHY I'M BY MYSELF;
I DON'T SEE YOU.
DOES IT MEAN YOU DON'T LOVE ME ANY MORE?

DON'T PASS ME BY,
DON'T MAKE ME CRY,
DON'T MAKE ME BLUE,
'CAUSE YOU KNOW, DARLING, I LOVE ONLY YOU.
YOU'LL NEVER KNOW IT HURT ME SO,
HOW I HATE TO SEE YOU GO;
DON'T PASS ME BY,
DON'T MAKE ME CRY.

I'M SORRY THAT I DOUBTED YOU, I WAS SO UNFAIR.
YOU WERE IN A CAR CRASH AND YOU LOST YOUR HAIR.
YOU SAID THAT YOU WOULD BE LATE, ABOUT AN HOUR OR TWO,
I SAID, THAT'S ALRIGHT, I'M WAITING HERE,
JUST WAITING TO HEAR FROM YOU.

DON'T PASS ME BY,
DON'T MAKE ME CRY,
DON'T MAKE ME BLUE,
'CAUSE YOU KNOW, DARLING, I LOVE ONLY YOU.
YOU'LL NEVER KNOW IT HURT ME SO,
HOW I HATE TO SEE YOU GO;
DON'T PASS ME BY,
DON'T MAKE ME CRY.

(One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight...mm)

DON'T PASS ME BY,
DON'T MAKE ME CRY,
DON'T MAKE ME BLUE,
'CAUSE YOU KNOW, DARLING, I LOVE ONLY YOU.
YOU'LL NEVER KNOW IT HURT ME SO,
HOW I HATE TO SEE YOU GO;
DON'T PASS ME BY,
DON'T MAKE ME CRY.
