​Remind Me to Tell You

This song is by Richard Carpenter and appears on the album Time (1987).

I can be distant like an echo in a canyon
I get resistant and I need your understanding
I don't know what happens, I get removed
I don't mean to fade out but when I do

Remind me to tell you
All the ways that I need you
Remind me to tell you
If somehow I forget to

How much I've come to rely
On the strength that I find in your eyes
If you feel me starting to slide
Remind me to tell you

I can be vacant like a schoolyard in the winter
I get complacent my attention starts to splinter
Then from out of nowhere as I'm watching you sleep
I have so much to tell you, I guess it'll keep

Remind me to tell you
All the ways that I need you
Remind me to tell you
If somehow I forget to

How much I've come to rely
On the strength that I find in your eyes
If you feel me starting to slide
Remind me to tell you

We built the mosaic one piece at a time
Midnight is lavender, morning is lime
Major attention to minor detail
You take it too lightly it's certain to fail

My fundamentals are sadly in need
Instead of advancing I tend to recede
I'll try to change
But if I should start acting the same

Yeah, remind me to tell you
All the ways that I need you
Remind me to tell you
If somehow I forget to

Remind me to tell you
All the ways that I need you
Remind me to tell you
If somehow I forget to
