"Walk On By" as written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David....
If you see me walking down the street
And I start to cry each time we meet
Walk on by, walk on by

Make believe
That you don't see the tears
Just let me grieve
In private 'cause each time I see you
I break down and cry
And walk on by (don't stop)
And walk on by (don't stop)
And walk on by

I just can't get over losing you
And so if I seem broken and blue
Walk on by, walk on by

Foolish pride
Is all that I have left
So let me hide
The tears and the sadness you gave me
When you said goodbye
Walk on by (don't stop)
Walk on by (don't stop)
Walk on by (don't stop)
Walk on

Walk on by
Walk on by
Foolish pride
Is all that I have left
So let me hide
The tears and the sadness you gave me
When you said goodbye
Walk on by (don't stop)
And walk on by (don't stop)
Now you really gotta go so walk on by (don't stop)
If you leave you'll never see the tears I cry
Now you really gotta go so walk on by (don't stop)

    General CommentNo comments on this song!?
    Simple message-she lost him and it's still too painful to see him.Maybe he's somehow over the break up but she just can't move on.
    Beautifully sung...

    Lyric CorrectionThe lyrics show an incorrect credit. This is not the song "Walk On By" written by Kendall Hayes. This song was written by Burt Bacharach (music) and Hal David (lyrics).
