Don't walk away Eileen
I've been livin' for you since the age of seventeen
Don't walk away Eileen
You've been tellin' lies and now it's time to come clean

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I can't keep time
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left behind

Eileen says I'm a boy, not a man
Cryin' on the corner with my head in my hands
I called her name and she ran
Slippin' through my fingers like a fist full of sand

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I lose my head
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left for dead

And she reads my mind when I'm sleepin'
And she always arrives when I'm leavin'
Yeah, she's blocking out the sun it seems
You're a pacifist with a gun, Eileen

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I can't keep time
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left behind

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I lose my head
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left for dead

Don't walk away Eileen
Don't walk away Eileen
Don't walk away Eileen
