I swapped my innocence for pride
Crushed the end within my stride
Said I’m strong now I know that I’m a leaver
I love the sound of you walking away
You walking away
Mascara bleeds a blackened tear, oh
And I am cold, yes I’m cold
But not as cold as you are

I love the sound of you walking away
You walking away
I love the sound of you walking away
Walking away, hey

Why don’t you walk away?
Why don’t you walk away?
Why don’t you walk away?

No buildings will fall down
Don’t you walk away
No quake will split the ground
Won’t you walk away?
The sun won’t swallow the sky
Won’t you walk away?
Statues will not cry
Don’t you walk away

Why don’t you walk away?
Why don’t you walk away?
Why don’t you walk away? Hey…

I cannot turn to see those eyes
As apologies may rise
I must be strong and stay an unbeliever
And love the sound of you walking away
You walking away
Mascara bleeds into my eye, oh
And I’m not cold, I am old
At least as old as you are

La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

And as you walk away?
Oh as you walk away?
Oh as you walk away

My headstone crumbles down
As you walk away
The Hollywood winds a-howl
As you walk away
The Kremlin’s falling
As you walk away
Radio Four is static
As you walk away

Oh as you walk away
Oh as you walk away
Oh as you walk away, hey…

The stab of stiletto
On a silent night
Stalin smiles and Hitler laughs
Churchill claps Mao Tse Tung on the back
