This song is by Ringo Starr and appears on the album VH1 Storytellers (1998) and on the album Ringo Starr:Live At Soundstage (2007).

This song is a cover of "Don't Pass Me By" by ​The Beatles.
I listen for your footsteps coming up the drive,
Listen for your footsteps, but they don't arrive.
Waiting for your knock, dear, on my old front door;
I don't hear it.
Does it mean you don't love me anymore?

I hear the clock a-ticking on the mantle shelf
I see the hands a-moving, but I'm by myself.
I wonder where you are tonight and why I'm by myself;
I don't see you.
Does it mean you don't love me anymore?

Don't pass me by,
Don't make me cry,
Don't make me blue,
Cause you know, darling, I love only you.
You'll never know it hurts me so,
How I hate to see you go;
Don't pass me by,
Don't make me cry.
Yeah!
Don't make me blue.

I'm sorry that I doubted you, you was so unfair.
You were in a car crash and you lost your hair. (oh no!)
You said that you'd be late, about an hour or two,
Well, that's all right, I'm waiting here,
Just waiting to hear from you.

Don't pass me by,
Don't make me cry,
Don't make me blue,
Cause you know, darling, I love only you.
You'll never know it hurts me so,
How I hate to see you go;
Don't pass me by,
Don't make me cry,
Don't make me blue.

Don't pass me by,
Don't make me cry,
Don't make me blue, (don't make me blue)
Cause you know, darling, I love only you. (I love you)
You'll never know it hurt me so,
How I hate to see you go - ;
Don't pass me by,
Don't make me cry,
Don't pass me blue.
