"Remember" as written by and Carsten/karlin Schack....
Like a dream I had
In subconscious deep
Here you come again
Only in my sleep
And I remember you
I remember you
Like a memory
of a Time gone by
Many things I've seen
Still I can't deny
That I remember you
Yes I remember the things you do to me

[Chorus]
When you say my name
When you hold my hand
When you whisper in my ear the things
That only you could understand
When you say my name
When you hold my hand
When you touch me softly in the way
That only you can do
I remember you
I remember you

Every other touch
Runs as cold as ice
If I get too close
I may pay the price
But I remember you
Yes I remember the things you do to me

[Chorus]

I would recognize your shadow in a crowded room
Change your name a million times
It wouldn't change my mind
Or what I hope to find
In your heart underneath
In a new rhythm I breathe
'Cause I remember you
I remember you
I remember you
I remember you
Yes I do

[Chorus]

I remember you
And I want you to say my name
I remember you
And I want you to say my name
Say my name
Say my name
Say my name...I remember

    General CommentHere's what Emilie says about this lovely song:
    Remember" is one of my favorite songs on the album. What's funny is, I didn't write it for me, I wrote it for Annie Lennox, not that she would ever care to sing it or that I ever gave it to her, but I wrote the song years ago before I began singing, and I envisioned Annie singing the song as I wrote it, which is how the vocal lines were guided in the particular way they were. It seems odd to say now, but it's true.
    As to the record crackles at the beginning and the end, the idea is this: Someone puts on an old record and is instantly transported back in time to, say, the 30s. A ghostly woman in a long satin gown is walking the streets at midnight drawn towards the presence of the invisible time traveler. He is her lover from a past existence, and she taunts him with her remembrance. In the end, he is called away from the ghost back to our modern world to the sound of the record player.

    General CommentThe synthesizer at the end is one of the most romantic sounds I have ever heard. I can't explain why.

    General CommentI agree pretty much with RachelRicochet...

    But to me, the song has a different point of view...
    I'm pretty sure this is not the meaning of the song, but this is how I relate to it:
    It's reminds me of a friend I have know for years. We have had an awesome and really complicated friendship over the years, but the most specific part must be the fact, that we have only met each other three times. And though that, he was one of my best and oldest friends (that for some reason never wanted to meet me, in real life). "I remember you" - tells how I miss him as a real person, and though we write every day, it feels like he's just a memory. A part of the past.

    "Yes I remember the things you do to me" - he did some funny thins to my mind, you might can guess later..

    "When you say my name
    When you hold my hand
    When you touch me softly in the way
    That only you can do" - the last time I ever saw him, isn't that long ago. He was SO kind, and he actually really wanted to see me and it was just... So...
    And I loved how he said my name, and how he caressed me.
    .. And I loved the moment where he did hold my hand.

    "Every other touch runs as cold as ice
    If I get too close I may pay the price" - reminds me of hes ridiculous girlfriend, he loves more than anything in the world...

    Song MeaningOne way I see this song is that a woman is in love with a man but he doesn't love her the same or anymore, but no matter what she does she remembers him and the things he would do to her "When you say my name when you hold my hand, when you whisper in my ear the things that only you could understand."

    Another way I see it is that the man the woman is with has changed over time maybe. Like the way he treats her or something like that. But every time he touches her she remembers the way he use to be and she wants the old him back. "Every other touch runs as cold as ice if I get too close I may pay the price" might mean that he has started abusing her. She knows his good side is still there she just doesn't know how to bring it out of him again, "I would recognize your shadow in a crowded room, change your name a million times, it wouldn't change my mind or what I hope to find in your heart underneath" But she really wants things to be how they were before "And I want you to say my name" meaning say it how you use to.

    I absolutely love this song and Emilie Autumn is a goddess! <3
