From the recording Just Walk Away


I need to calm to calm my mind
There is some peace I need to find
Maybe tomorrow not today
Just walk away

There’s a pounding in my chest
I wanna scream I need to rest
You won’t get it no matter what I say
Just walk away

Just walk away don’t turn back
Just walk away let it fade to black
Swallow the anger spit out the pain
I don’t want my life to be in vain

If you see me seeing red
There’s already sirens going off in my head
No black no white it’s all gray
Just walk away

It took me 25 years
To get to this place to be standing here
If you’re in my shoes I hope & pray
That you too can walk away
Just walk away
