WALK AWAY

Copyright 2010 Ė Robert E. Shandor

 

You say I should be saviní for a rainy day
What if a drought rolls in
To die with money sitting in the bank is
Like an eighth deadly sin

 

I wear my poker face at every game Iím in
And take the deal as it lands
Some play like lions and some like lambs
I play like my last cards are in each hand

 

And I canít always be the things
That I think you might want me to be
I think you might want me to be
And I donít think I need to change my ways
I have to live my life free
Yeah, I have to live my life free
You know I have to live my life free

 

You might think that Iím the answer
To things that havenít yet passed
Itís more likely, Iím the question
That youíre afraid to ask

 

I could tell you what you want to hear
Like reading lines from a play
My Romeo to your Juliet
Star-crossed lovers in the light of day

 

And I canít always say the things
That I think you might want me to say
I think you might want me to say
And I really donít want to break your heart
So turn around and walk away
Just turn around and walk away
You need to turn around and walk away

 

And I canít always be the things
That I think you might want me to be
I think you might want me to be
And I donít think I need to change my ways
I have to live my life free
Yeah, I have to live my life free
You know I have to live my life free

 

And I canít always say the things
That I think you might want me to say
I think you might want me to say
And I really donít want to break your heart
So turn around and walk away
Just turn around and walk away
You need to turn around and walk away
