If It Doesn't Come Naturally Leave It - Al Stewart
 
Nothing that's forced can ever be right
If it doesn't come naturally, leave it
That's what she said as she turned out the light
And we bent our backs as slaves of the night
She lowered her guard and showed me the scars
She got from trying to fight
Saying oh, you'd better believe it

Well I'm up to my neck in the crumbling wreckage
Of all that I wanted from life
When I looked for respect all I got was neglect
Though I swallowed the line as a sign of the times
But dealing a jack from the back of the pack
They said-"You lose again"
Oh, I said, who needs it?

Well don't get me wrong now I tried to get on
With the jokers that got in my way
And I put on a smile and I tried all the while to be straight
But they just wanted more all the time and I'm sure
That you know what I mean when I say
That I'm sick of the touch and there's only so much you can take.

Well nothing that's real is ever for free
And you just have to pay for it sometime
She said it before, she said it to me
I suppose she believed there was nothing to see
But the same old four imaginary walls
She built for living inside
I said oh, you just can't mean it

Well there was never a doubt that she had to get out
She was just looking around for a way
In the pit of the night there was nowhere to hide any more
She was out on a limb, she was reaching for things
That she wanted, but just couldn't say
And she had to be sure that she wouldn't get caught like before.

Well nothing that's forced can ever be right
If it doesn't come naturally, leave it
That's what she said as she turned out the light
And she may have been wrong, and she may have been right
But I woke with the frost, and noticed she'd lost
The veil that covered her eyes
I said oh, you can leave it
 
 
 
Walk Away - The English Beat
 
Then she said...
...if you ever try to lean on me, too heavily,
i'll step aside and watch you fall
we'll make each other look so small
let's either find another way, or bang our
heads into the wall, and walk away
do you have to get this close before it hits?
you've always known just how much
people are a part of why
we've now not got the heart to say
i'll leave it, if you will,
let's walk away.
thought it was different but it also
had the same so so
promised myself i'd never go through it again
now that every love song bears the same
familiar strain of...
walk away before i do something stupid
walk away before these threats turn into
one of us could do it
walk away before i say
it's getting too much
walk away walk away
before one of us cracks up.

(repeat to fade)
oooh don't walk away
 
 

Walk Away (Maybe) - Good Charlotte

I made this bed
I choose to lie in it
Live with my regrets
Sleep with what I said
Could this be the end
Am I standing on the edge
Of everything I wanted now

I was afraid
I was afraid

Maybe I’m just scared
To face the things I fear
It's easier to walk away from everything

Separate my soul
With all the things we shared
I’m fallin' to pieces now
Say a prayer for me
When you go to bed
I’m in need of your faith now

I was afraid

Maybe I’m just scared
To face the things I fear
It's easier to walk away from everything

If we could just reset
And live in happiness
Instead of our regrets
We'd salvage everything
We don't have to walk away

Pray for me now
I’m in need of faith
Pray for me now
I’m in need

Maybe I’m just scared
To face the things I feared
It's easier to walk away from everything

If we could just reset
And live in happiness
Instead of our regrets
We'd salvage everything

Maybe I’m just scared
To face the things I failed
It's easier to walk away from everything
Walk away from everything
Walk away from everything

 

 

Walk On By - Burt Bacharach/Hal David - (Dion Warwick)

If you see me walking down the street
And I start to cry each time we meet
Walk on by, walk on by

Make believe that you don't see the tears
Just let me grieve in private
'Cause each time I see you, I break down and cry
And walk on by - don't stop
And walk on by - don't stop
And walk on by

I just can't get over losing you
And so if I seem broken and blue
Walk on by, walk on by

Foolish pride is all that I have left
So let me hide the tears and the sadness
You gave me when you said goodbye
Walk on by
And walk on by
And walk by - don't stop

Walk on by, walk on by

Foolish pride is all that I have left
So let me hide the tears and the sadness
You gave me when you said goodbye
Walk on by - don't stop
And walk on by - don't stop
And walk by - don't stop

 

Bad - U2

If you twist and turn away
If you tear yourself in two again
If I could - yes I would
If I could, I would let it go
Surrender - dislocate

If I could throw this lifeless lifeline to the wind

Leave this heart of clay
See you walk, walk away
Into the night and through the rain
Into the half-light and through the flame

If I could through myself set your spirit free
I'd lead your heart away
See you break, break away
Into the light and to the day

To let it go and so to fade away
To let it go and so fade away
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
Wide awake
I'm not sleeping - oh, no, no

If you should ask then maybe they
Would tell you what I would say
True colours fly in blue and black
bruised silken sky and burning flak
Colours crash - collide in bloodshot eyes

If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would let it go
This desperation - dislocation
Separation - condemnation - revelation
In temptation - isolation - desolation

Let it go, and so fade away
To let it go, and so fade away
To let it go, and so to fade away
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
Wide awake
I'm not sleeping - oh, no, no

 

Just Like Heaven - The Cure

"show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream" she said
"the one that makes me laugh" she said
And threw her arms around my neck
"show me how you do it
And i promise you i promise that
I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you"
Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways i had
To make her glow
"why are you so far away?" she said
"why won't you ever know that i'm in love with you
That i'm in love with you"
You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl i loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Just like heaven


Leave It Behind - The Offspring

Rage burns can't push it aside now
Can't forgive this grudge is alive now
All the rage eats you up inside
Can you leave it behind
What a surprise --
You're fucked with again Yeah
It's a way of life you need to get over
All the rage just eats you alive
Can you leave it behind
I don't know where it'll end
The sun has set
And I can't be friends
I don't know if I can forgive
The day is long
But you were so dead wrong
