"Do You Remember" as written by and Phil Collins....
Don't need no cash
We can make a dash, hit the street.
It's always been, it's always been you and me.
Baby it's cool, you suck at school anyway.
So pack it up, let's run away, run away.

[chorus]
I know them bruises ain't from fallin' down,
They seem to show when your drunk Dad's around.
We can go whenever you let go (whenever you let go)
Do you remember we said we'd run
Away together, holding on to one another.
I'll steal the car, steal the credit cards,
We'll run forever, holding on to one another.

This is the day, and tonight, I'll be there.
You know the time, you know the time don't be scared.
Get all your CDs, get all your posters,
Get what you need from their wallets and their purses.

[chorus]

And when we're all alone
With no one there to bother
I'll treat you like a queen
Forget about your father
There's no means that justify you
Livin' your whole life
In pain

[chorus]

(I'm here to save you from falling down)

Do you remember (I'm here to save you from falling down)

Do you remember (I'm here to save you from falling down)

Do you remember (I'm here to save you from falling down)

Do you remember (I'm here to save you from falling down)

(Do you remember)

    General Commenti think this song is pretty easy to understand.
    he wants to take her away from her abusive dad and he's going to treat her really well.
    basically he just wants to save her from all the pain in her life and run away.

    General Commentoutxofxsight is right... an abusive dad "they seem to show when your drunk dad's around" it's about a guy and a girl who promised to runaway before.. and now the guy is telling the girl she has to let go and they can "run forever" (be together) it's an awsome song. the piano in the verses adds another dimension to it

    General CommentI love this song. Its really moving.
    It's about someone who lives with an abusive dad:

    " know them bruises ain't from fallin' down,
    They seem to show when your drunk Dad's around.
    We can go whenever you let go (whenever you let go)"
    The girl covers up her abuse by excuses and
    the guy is convinced that her alcoholic dad beats her and the guy is really concerned about her. He's telling her that she can be with the guy and safe whenever she gives up the life with the abuse.

    "Do you remember we said we'd run
    Away together, holding on to one another.
    I'll steal the car, steal the credit cards,
    We'll run forever, holding on to one another.
    This is the day, and tonight, I'll be there.
    You know the time, you know the time don't be scared.
    Get all your CDs, get all your posters,
    Get what you need from their wallets and their purses."
    The guy is pretty much running away with the girl he loves and he wants to be with her and protect her. The both have promised to runaway with each other before and now is the time. The girl is gathering her things and leaving her old life with her dad and starting over with the guy.

    "And when we're all alone
    With no one there to bother
    I'll treat you like a queen
    Forget about your father
    There's no means that justify you
    Livin' your whole life
    In pain"
    My favorite part of the song(:
    The guy and the girl are finally free and the guy is explaining to her that he's going help the girl start over. He says that he'll treat her only the best and that she should forget about her dad's alcoholism and abuse. He also tells her that she shouldn't live a life of abuse and pain. (:

    "Do you remember (I'm here to save you from falling down)"
    A very good ending to this song.=)
    It's summarizing the song in a way by saying that the guy is trying to make the girl remember and now they're free and happy together. The guy is telling the girl that he will always be there for her through anything and he will help her through every problem she has with her life. (:

    It's a beautiful song, in general.

    General CommentLove this song. I played it for my cousin because her father is extremely abusive. And she ran away to her boyfriend's house. Lol. Whoops, but she's home now, it's all good.

    General Comment'it's always been, always been you and me'

    the meaning's pretty obvious, the guy is telling his girlfriend to runaway with him, because her dad is abusive. youknowww.

    General Commentwow....i cant believe my life in a song.

    my dad gets angry and well you see where this is going....
    my boyfriend and me talk about running away a lot. its hard cause were younger (16)
    yesturday night i asked him do you ever wonder about these bruises??
    and all he said was ya i guess.
    we dont have a lot of money i've got two jobs just for phone bill, gas money.
    we both probably aren't the best students...though he's got to be the smartest boy i know.
    my friend had me listen to this song today....i cried in front of her...

    so dont think i'm trying to sob story you guys
    CAUSE I'M NOT!!
    its just that this song well it means a lot.
    i hope everyone enjoys it as much as me.
