about

For the album’s closer Lu wrote lyrics to Joe Henderson’s indelible Brazilian flavor “Recorda Me,” which in Lu’s context becomes “Don’t Forget to Remember.” “I wanted to express in a relatable way that the cycle of life is unending,”

lyrics

DON’T FORGET TO REMEMBER (RECORDA ME)

(Joe Henderson, Lyrics by Lu Olutosin)

REMEMBER HOW YOU SMILED
REMEMBER EVERY MOMENT THAT WE SHARED I WAS YOUR LOVE
AND JUST REMEMBER HOW WE TOUCHED,
I WHISPERED I’D PROTECT YOU DON’T BE SCARED
I’LL BE RIGHT THERE
FOREVER I’M WITH YOU
NO YOU’RE NOT ALONE
THROUGH I’VE BEEN CALLED HOME
DON’T FORGET TO REMEMBER ME
NO NEED TO FEEL DESPAIR
NO NEED TO WORRY FOR ME ‘CAUSE I’M IN A BETTER PLACE
YOU ALWAYS SHOWED ME THAT YOU CARED
I WISH THAT I COULD TOUCH YOU, BUT I’LL SEE YOU IN YOUR PRAYERS
FOREVER I’M WITH YOU
LISTEN FOR MY CALL
CATCH YOU WHEN YOU FALL
DON’T FORGET TO REMEMBER ME
WE’LL BE TOGETHER SOON
BUT UNTIL THEN YOU’LL SEE ME EVERY TIME YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES
I’M ALWAYS WATCHING OVER YOU
AT TIMES YOU’LL FEEL ME NEAR YOU IN THE CORNER OF YOUR ROOM
FOREVER I’M WITH YOU
NO YOU’RE NOT ALONE
THROUGH I’VE BEEN CALLED HOME, DON’T FORGET TO REMEMBER ME
