We use to walk in each other arms
"It was one on one," That's what you said
Now the moon is a sliver in our eye
We stumble bleeding on this broken glass

There was too much repetition
(Over and over and over again)
You know we're past the point of sane
(Over and over and over again)
And all this broken glass you left behind
Won't let you make a clean, clean
I said, "Walk away"

Now we're crossing from the sacred ground
Where we once held each other, and each other's names
And the words are sparse, and we feel so profound
But babe you know all I feel, honey I feel so ashamed

Ah 'cause there was, there was too much repetition
Ah you know, you know, you know
You know we're past the point of sane
Ah oh
All this broken glass we left behind
It won't let us make a clean, clean

I said, "Walk away"
Ah yeah walk away
Oh no walk away
Baby, baby walk away
Ah oh
I said, "Walk away"
Walk away
Oh no walk away
Baby, baby walk away

There was a time when we gave everything
And it was true babe, true enough to bleed
(True enough to bleed baby)
But now you feel that you've got nothing left
If there's nothing to lose babe
Ah babe, don't you know by now?
Then there's nothing to gain
Ah no walk away
Oh no, walk away
Oh baby baby, walk away

You know, I'd still hold you if I could
It's hard not to try and change, try to change your mind
I'm a pillar of salt and I want you to understand me
'Cause honey this is the last time, it's the last time

I never look behind
Ah yeah, walk away
Ah no walk away
Baby, baby walk away
All right
Let's go

Ah I said, "Walk away"
Ah yeah walk away
Ah no walk away
Baby, baby walk away
Ah no I said, "Walk away"
(Don't you know we used to walk)
Come on now baby walk away
(In each others arms)

I said, "Close your eyes walk away"
(Hand in hand)
Baby, baby try to listen to me I want to tell you
(That's what you said to be baby yeah)
Now walk away
(Now the moon)
Ah yeah walk away
(Is a sliver in our eyes)
Try to learn to look inside walk away
(And we stumble)
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
(Walking on broken glass)

I said "Walk away"
Come on now baby, walk away
I said, "Listen to me"
Walk away baby baby
Now I've got somethin' that I want to tell you
Walk away
Ah no, walk away
Ah baby
I said, "You've got to know by now"
Come on
