I wanna walk away
Like Judas from the table
Turn my back
And walk away

I wanna close my eyes
Like that novice at the altar
Bow my head
And close my eyes

Sorrow took Love's splintered hands
Waltzed her 'cross a painted floor
Whispered softly in her ear
"Let's get outta here"

I'm going to breathe the air
That my children will be breathing
Breathe them out
And breathe them in again

I'm going to close my eyes
And walk away
Turn my back, bow my head
And close my eyes

Gonna turn my back
Bow my head and walk away
Turn my back, bow my head
And close my eyes

I'm gonna breathe them in
Breathe them out
And breathe them in

Turn my back then bow my head
And close my eyes
Turn my back, bow my head
Breathe them in, turn my back
Close my eyes
