  • We never talked about it
    But I hear the blame was mine
    And I'd call you up to say I'm sorry
    But I wouldn't wanna waste your time

    'Cause I love you, but I can't take any more
    There's a look I can't describe in your eyes
    If we could try, like we tried before
    Would you keep on tellin' me those lies? (Tellin' me lies)

    Do you remember?
    (Do you remember?)
    Ooh, do you remember?
    (Do you remember?)

    There seemed no way to make up
    'Cause it seemed your mind was set
    Ooh, and the way you looked, it told me
    It's a look I know I'll never forget

    You could've come over to my side
    You could've let me know
    You could've tried to see the distance between us
    But it seemed too far for you to go (so far to go)

    Do you remember?
    (Do you remember?)
    Ooh, do you remember?
    (Do you remember?)

    Through all of my life
    In spite of all the pain
    You know, people are funny sometimes
    They just can't wait to get hurt again

    Tell me, do you remember?
    (Do you remember?)

    There are things we won't recall
    And feelings we'll never find
    It's taken so long to see it
    'Cause we never seemed to have the time

    There was always something more important to do
    More important to say
    But, "I love you" wasn't one of those things
    And now it's too late (now it's too late) (now it's too late)

    Do you remember? (Do you remember? Now it's over)
    (Do you remember? Ooh, it's over)
    Ooh, do you remember? (Do you remember? Now it's over)
    (Do you remember? Ooh, it's over) ooh, yeah
    Tell me, do you remember? (Do you remember? Now it's over)
    Ooh, do you remember? (Do you remember? Ooh, it's over)
    Tell me now, tell me now (Do you remember? Now it's over)
    Tell me now, tell me now (Do you remember? Ooh, it's over)
    Do you remember? (Do you remember? Now it's over)
    (Do you remember? Ooh, it's over) Writer/s: Phillip David Charles Collins

  • Mitchell from Liverpool, UkThis song is very special to me. A few years ago I was 16, depressed and thought I had no future. Relationships with my parents felt damaged beyond repair, and I was about a week from ending my life. Then one day I went for a walk, and this song I hadn't heard before randomly came on my iPod. It seemed to describe my situation perfectly, and reminded me that these things happen to us all, and we get through them. That was my turning point, and 7 years later my life is better than ever.
  • Isooba Karim from Kampala UgandaThis song reminds me of Osire. We've not parted but she is too far and may take too long to come back. I miss her too much.
  • Dave from Wheaton, IlIt sounds very much like Phil's take on 'Groovy kind of love'.
