don't walk away


Released: 2000 on 'Cupid Is A Drunkard'



The snow falls crumbling the sky
On the pavement and on you and I
As we sit here struggling to say goodbye
And though we search for words
Anyone can see
Our tired and tearful eyes
Are blind as they can be
But you know sometimes
These things are meant to be
And sometimes tears can heal the scars
That only they can see

And I'm sitting in this car park
Watching as you go
Your bag across your shoulder
Heavy through the snow
The sound of two hearts breaking
And no-one seems to know
And no-one hears the silent scream
That follows as you go


Don't walk away with those tears in your eyes
Don't walk away how can I say I'm sorry
Though I know I have to let you go
Don't walk away
Don't walk away
Don't walk away
The snow falls covering the town
Like the rain falls but rain dressed as a clown
A white face to hide the tears falling down
And as you walk away
You turn and wave goodbye
And though you try to smile
Your eyes cannot deny
The way your heart
Is breaking up inside
Then suddenly you're gone from me
In the crowd of passers-by

And I'm sitting in this car park
Now that you are gone
Wondering just what I've lost
Where it all went wrong
And wondering if all I've gained
Are the lyrics to a song
And even though the music's stopped
Why the tune still lingers on


Don't walk away with those tears in your eyes
Don't walk away how can I say I'm sorry
Though I know I have to let you go
Don't walk away
Don't walk away
Don't walk away
