Walk Away 04:21
Burnt all my pictures on a cloudy day To hide the smoke that rose then blew away I never thought that I would see the day Went through my stuff only to lose my mind I’ve thought of you since then a million times I never thought that I would see the day It’s okay if you stay - but if you walk - then you walk away When you choose to walk - you can fall down That’s the risk you take But not today – No, not today Today will be the day – today I feel no guilt or pain I just walk away Now that I’m far from where I used to be I see the footsteps where you walked with me Watch me walk away
2.
Watch me walk away Today will be the day – today I feel no guilt or pain I just walk away I never thought that I would see the day
3.
From where I stand it’s another cloudy day If there’s something I can guarantee no matter what you burn the smoke will rise and blow away I’m watching the flames lap and I’m feeling nothing but warmth on my hands Never thought I’d get to this place Never thought I’d see the day I’m silent and I’m standing so still but also walking away The guilt is gone and your memory lives on Never thought I’d see the day I’d be so strong Now watch me walk away Never thought I’d see the day Never thought I’d walk away The guilt is gone and your memory lives on
4.
The sum of all these days is like a drop into the ocean Like anything that’s made, a promise can be broken You came and took your place and no-one is above you Anything I said I meant to say Gone too soon, before I knew Turn the clock back but it’s much too late for that, I miss you Gone too soon, can’t have back, Any moment that I’ve wasted in the past You’ve gone too soon The beauty on display was quietly outspoken The minutes turned to days when I realised I was broken The love I feel today, no song can contain it Anything I say I mean to say Gone too soon, before I knew Turn the clock back but it’s much too late for that, I miss you Gone too soon, can’t have back, Any moment that I’ve wasted in the past You’ve gone too soon When I realised it was over and I could not run to you It was the day I saw myself for what I am It was the day I saw the truth of what you’ve been But you were gone Gone too soon, before I knew Turn the clock back but it’s much too late for that, I miss you Gone too soon, can’t have back, Any moment that I’ve wasted in the past You’ve gone too soon

I should have seen it from the start To love is to lose then fall apart There is a place for you in my heart You should be mine And I should be yours til the end of time You should be mine And I should be yours til the end of time Life’s not fair but the way it is I should have told you everything I’ve learnt that time’s the enemy It feels like the end of the world has begun You should be mine I should have told you everything I should have seen it from the start I learnt that time’s the enemy
6.
I learnt that time’s the enemy I should have seen it from the start To love is to lose then fall apart There is a place for you in my heart You should be mine And I should be yours til the end of time You should be mine And I should be yours til the end of time I should have told you everything I’ve learnt that time’s the enemy It feels like the end of the, end of the world has begun You should be mine And I should be yours til the end of time You should be mine And I should be yours til the end of time I learnt that time’s the enemy

Fool 06:50
I’m so taken, not just by your words But everything you seem to be I’ll take my chances – As soon as you are gone I will have no place to be Until I can find the power, to fight what I’m feeling I know there’s no way out I will be your fool, I will be that fool I will be your fool, I will be that fool Inside of me’s a heart that beats for you Inside of me’s a heart that beats for you I’m mistaken; I thought I had the words To tell you what you mean to me I took my chances, and now that you are gone Look at the place it’s left me Until I can find the power, to fight what I’m feeling I know there’s no way out I will be your fool, I will be that fool I will be your fool, I will be that fool Inside of me’s a heart that beats for you Inside of me’s a heart that beats for you Do you understand you’re something My words cannot describe If you only knew you’re someone You would have the answers, you would understand why Until I can find the power, to fight what I’m feeling I know there’s no way out I will be your fool, I will be that fool I will be your fool, I will be that fool Inside of me’s a heart that beats for you Inside of me’s a heart that beats for you I’m so taken, not just by your words But everything you seem to be

Looking back the love we had was something I needed Erosion happened over time and we were defeated Now you know what I know And I will never forget what you gave to me and I still hold you as my dearest friend I never meant it to hurt like it must have hurt you The compound of conscience has split to form fact and regret I can’t start to count the tears that fell as I waited Any love I have for you is worn and out-dated Now you know what I know I’m sorry for what I did to you I’m sorry for what I put you through Now you know what I know And I will never forget I still hold you as my dearest friend I never meant it to hurt The compound of conscience has split to form fact and regret
