Walk Away

She kept on walking away

You were mine, mine

Leaving it all behind

To remember the pieces of my wasted time

 

Years went by like the rain

Forgetting all the games that we played

Young stupid and carefree

Now you’re anything I want you to be

 

Once you were my saving grace

Memories of smoke and lace

Love at dawn

That kept me in my place

 

Years went by like the rain

Forgetting all the games that we played

Young stupid and carefree

Now you’re anything I want you to be

 

All the drunken nights

All the lousy fights

All the drugs and ripped tights

Feel so good now

 

Years went by like the rain

Forgetting all the games that we played

Young stupid and carefree

Now you’re anything I want you to be

 

Looking for a pocket full of answers

But I can’t find any in the sunshine

We’ve weaved the broken webs already

Don’t know if I had the right tune

 

Years went by like the rain

Forgetting all the games that we played

Young stupid and carefree

Now you’re anything I want you to be

 

For a time I gotta be alone

Just me and my memories

She had eyes that made me see far

She showed me life and how to live it all

 

Years went by like the rain

Forgetting all the games that we played

Young stupid and carefree

Now you’re anything I want you to be
