"Will You Remember?" as written by and Dolores Mary O'riordan....
Will you remember the dress I wore?
Will you remember my face?
Will you remember the lipstick I wore?
This world is a wonderful place
Will you remember the black limousine?
Will you remember champagne?
Will you remember the things that we've seen?
I will return here again
Will you remember the flowers in my hand?
Will you remember my hair?
Will you remember the future we planned?
The world is not waiting out there
I won't remember the dress I wore
I won't remember champagne
I won't remember the things that we swore
I will just love you in vain
Will you remember?
Will you recall?

    General Commentits about a girl losing her virginity on prom night he wont remember her and she wont care to remember anything about the night. She will just always love him in vain because he took a part of her.

    My OpinionConsidering the rest of the album deals with death, loss, remembering and the grieving process, I think it's safe to say this song was inspired by the fact that she was thinking about a departed loved one so much in her daily life that she's dreaming about the person. Perhaps she missed the person so much, she desperately wanted to see them again, and this carries over into her dreams. It has nothing to do with sex or previous romantic relationships.

    The album was dedicated to their manager who died. He also happened to be the guy that got them into the business professionally. Also, Dolores' grandfather died around this time, whom I understand she was very close to.

    I know her voice is sexy but there is nothing sexual about this album. It's an intimate, personal album, but not like that. It's a brilliant album and yet it's so sad when you really listen to the lyrics, listen to it from start to finish and know a little of the history that surrounds it's making.
