walk away lyrics – john foxx

don’t say i love you, i won’t say that i care
i’ll pretend i never kissed you, or held you, or worshipped you
i swear
i’ll live in denial for as long as i live
cuz what i need baby, this love just can’t give
we have to walk away
we have to walk away

i’ll try not to sing, you’ll try not to talk with those lips
we’ll forget all the sweet memories, and now we’ll just go with what is
cuz this love ain’t loving, and i don’t know why
but anything that stands so still can’t be alive
we have to walk away
we have to walk away

but there were times our love was, so sweet
and it’s memory that makes me want to make it last
but you can’t make love work, anymore than you can make it leave
and it’s then you gotta leave it yourself

cuz when love ain’t loving but still ain’t leaving
it’s then you gotta leave it yourself

now jealousy can ride your heart like a sick kind of pony
and envy’s just the same
and your loneliness can consume you no matter how much love you had
and when it all boils down, baby, there’s no other way
and i care much more than to make you stay
we have to walk away
we have to walk away

so at night, when darkness fills me,
i’ll pretend you never spoke my name
when i’m sitting home that lonely,
i’ll pretend you’re home and lonely, oh just the same
and i’ll pretend this sorrow, this sorrow will p*ss
and i’ll try to pretend that this loneliness won’t last
and that i’ll walk away
yeah, yeah, yeah

so don’t say
so don’t say i love you
i won’t say that i care
