Walk Out Backwards Lyrics

by Sara Evans

I'd rather live a life of lies and fantasy
Than to face the truth and realize you're leaving me
You built me up so high, my heart can't stand to fall
And life without your love just isn't life at all

So walk out backwards, if you must go
But please don't wave goodbye, just wave one last hello
But the truth won't hurt so much, if I can just pretend
So walk out backwards and I'll think you're walking in

Well, you walked into my heart in search of sympathy
And from that day down to this you've walked all over me
And now you're walking out to love somebody new
But you're not by yourself 'cause my heart's leaving too

So walk out backwards, if you must go
But please don't wave goodbye, just wave one last hello
But the truth won't hurt so much, if I can just pretend
So walk out backwards and I'll think you're walking in
Just walk out backwards and I'll think you're walking in
