    Eb               Bb             Eb
If you walk away, I'll walk away
      Eb            Bb               Eb
First tell me which road you will take
    Cm          Bb             Eb            Cm
I don't want to risk our paths crossing some day
   Eb                   Bb               Eb
So you walk that way, I'll walk this way


          Eb            Bb       Eb
And the future hangs over our heads
       Eb                Bb       Eb
And it moves with each current event
    Cm         Bb             Eb           Cm
Until it falls all around like a cold steady rain
     Eb                Bb           Eb
Just stay in when it's looking this way


         Eb             Bb         Eb
And the moon's laying low in the sky
         Eb          Bb       Eb
Forcing everything metal to shine
          Cm             Bb               Eb             Cm
And the sidewalk holds diamonds like the jewelry store case
       Eb                   Bb            Eb
They argue walk this way, now walk this way


       Eb         Bb         Eb
And Laura's asleep in my bed
         Eb             Bb           Eb
As I'm leaving she wakes up and says
     Cm             Bb                   Eb        Cm
"I dreamed you were carried away on the crest of a wave
      Eb               Bb          Eb
Baby don't go away, come here"


            Eb            Bb         Eb
And there's kids playing guns in the street
         Eb            Bb             Eb   
And ones pointing his tree branch at me
       Cm          Bb         Eb                Cm
So I put my hands up I say "enough is enough,
   Eb              Bb               Eb
If you walk away, I'll walk away"

And he shot me dead


Cm      Bb    Eb
I found a liquid cure
Cm      Bb          Eb
From my landlocked blues
      Ab   Bb          Eb     Cm
It'll pass away like a slow parade
     Eb         Bb              Eb
It's leaving but I don't know how soon 


         Eb          Bb         Eb
And the world's got me dizzy again
                   Eb            Bb         Eb
You think after 22 years I'd be used to the spin
     Cm         Bb             Eb          Cm
And it only feels worse when I stay in one place
                 Eb            Bb         Eb
So I'm always pacing around or walking away


        Eb          Bb             Eb
I keep drinking the ink from my pen
         Eb         Bb             Eb
And I'm balancing history books up on my head
      Cm      Bb             Eb          Cm
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase
      Eb              Bb         Eb
If you love something, give it away


        Eb            Bb         Eb
a good woman will pick you apart
       Eb          Bb                Eb
a box full of suggestions for your possible heart
         Cm      Bb             Eb          Cm
But you may be offended and you may be afraid
     Eb                Bb                Eb
But don't walk away, don't walk away


          Eb          Bb          Eb
We made love on the living room floor
            Eb          Bb                Eb
With the noise in the background of a televised war
            Cm      Bb                  Eb          Cm
And in the deafening pleasure I thought I heard someone say
    Eb             Bb                 Eb
"If we walk away, they'll walk away"


      Eb        Bb         Eb
But greed is a bottomless pit
          Eb           Bb              Eb
And our freedom's a joke we're just taking a piss
         Cm          Bb                Eb          Cm
And the whole world must watch the sad comic display
      Eb          Bb              Eb
If you're still free start running away

Cause we're coming for you!


            Eb        Bb         Eb
I've grown tired of holding this post
      Eb           Bb             Eb
I feel more like a stranger each time I come home
     Cm     Bb         Eb       Cm
So I'm making a deal with the devils of faith
      Eb          Bb     Eb
Saying "let me walk away, please"


           Eb        Bb               Eb
You'll be free child once you have died
          Eb          Bb             Eb
From the shackles of language and immeasurable time
         Cm      Bb                Eb       Cm
And then we can trade places, play musical grace
      Eb              Bb         Eb
Till then walk away, walk away


Cm      Bb    Eb
So I'm up at dawn
Cm      Bb    Eb
Putting on my shoes
      Ab       Bb      Eb     Cm
I just want to make a clean escape
Cm      Bb    Eb
I'm leaving but I don't know where to

I know I'm leaving but I don't know where to
