C G C
If you walk away, I'll walk away
C G C
First tell me which road you will take
Am G C Am
I don't want to risk our paths crossing some day
C G C
So you walk that way, I'll walk this way
C G C
And the future hangs over our heads
C G C
And it moves with each current event
Am G C Am
Until it falls all around like a cold steady rain
C G C
Just stay in when it's looking this way
C G C
And the moon's laying low in the sky
C G C
Forcing everything metal to shine
Am G C Am
And the sidewalk holds diamonds like the jewelry store case
C G C
They argue walk this way, now walk this way
C G C
And Laura's asleep in my bed
C G C
As I'm leaving she wakes up and says
Am G C Am
"I dreamed you were carried away on the crest of a wave
C G C
Baby don't go away, come here"
C G C
And there's kids playing guns in the street
C G C
And ones pointing his tree branch at me
Am G C Am
So I put my hands up I say "enough is enough,
C G C
If you walk away, I'll walk away"

And he shot me dead

Am G C
I found a liquid cure
Am G C
From my landlocked blues
F G C Am
It'll pass away like a slow parade
C G C
It's leaving but I don't know how soon

C G C C G C Am G C Am C G C

C G C
And the world's got me dizzy again
C G C
You think after 22 years I'd be used to the spin
Am G C Am
And it only feels worse when I stay in one place
C G C
So I'm always pacing around or walking away
I keep drinking the ink from my pen
And I'm balancing history books up on my head
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase
If you love something, give it away
A good woman will pick you apart
A box full of suggestions for your possible heart
But you may be offended and you may be afraid
But don't walk away, don't walk away
We made love on the living room floor
With the noise in background of a televised war
And in the deafening pleasure I thought I heard someone say
"If we walk away, they'll walk away"
But greed is a bottomless pit
And our freedom's a joke
We're just taking a piss
And the whole world must watch the sad comic display
If you're still free start running away
Cause we're coming for you!

C G C C G C Am G C Am C G C

I've grown tired of holding this post
I feel more like a stranger each time I come home
So I'm making a deal with the devils of faith
Saying "let me walk away, please"
You'll be free child once you have died
From the shackles of language and immeasurable time
And then we can trade places, play musical grace
Till then walk away, walk away

Am G C
So I'm up at dawn
Am G C
Putting on my shoes
F G C Am
I just want to make a clean escape
C G C
I'm leaving but I don't know where to
C G C
I know I'm leaving but I don't know where to
