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


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


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


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


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

And he shot me dead


Cm      A#    D#
I found a liquid cure
Cm      A#          D#
From my landlocked blues
      G#   A#          D#     Cm
It'll pass away like a slow parade
     D#         A#              D#
It's leaving but I don't know how soon


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


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


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


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


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

Cause we're coming for you!


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


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


Cm      A#    D#
So I'm up at dawn
Cm      A#    D#
Putting on my shoes
      G#       A#      D#     Cm
I just want to make a clean escape
Cm      A#    D#
I'm leaving but I don't know where to

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