"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
Walk on by (don't stop)
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, that's 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, that's 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)

Now you really gotta go so walk on by (don't stop)
Baby leave me, never see the tears I cry (don't stop)
Now you really gotta go so walk on by (don't stop)
Baby leave me, never see the tears I cry (don't stop)
Now you really gotta go so walk on by (don't stop)
Baby leave me, never see the tears I cry (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).
