WALK AWAY FROM ME


~~~~~~~~~~~

This is my last ditch attempt to reach you
This is all killing me inside
I look around and see the chaos in our lives
And my eyes are open very wide

You said "Walk away from me, I'm only going to hurt you
Walk away from me, I will only make you cry
Walk away from me, I am only going to hurt you
Walk away from me and just let me die"

I think of all the years I've watched you drown your pain
Come up to surface and then drown yourself again
I've always kept the hope that someday you will see the light
But the water is over my head, and I'm scared I cannot win this fight

You said "Walk away from me, I'm only going to hurt you
Walk away from me, I told you from the start
Walk away from me, I will only bring you sadness
Walk away from me I will only break your heart"

Some people bury all their troubles in a bottle
Some people choose to stick a needle in their arm
When I saw you I thought Love was what you needed
But all you want to do is die and I was wrong

I wish I could walk away from you, you only know to hurt me
Walk away from you, you only make me cry
walk away from you, you only bring me sorrow
walk away from you, loving you is killing me inside
