song title:Walk Away
date: 1993-01-01
lyrics: 

verse 1:
It's been a long stretch of highway,
far across the Misty Mountains to the ocean's shore.
I drank a thousand pints in taverns I found along my way.
I sat and drank and listened an I learned the minstrels' lore.

verse 2:
It's been a long road from nowhere,
far across the nothingness into the dying sun.
Dead dreams are no comfort to hungry vultures in the air.
When, when, when will we see what we have done?

chorus:
When, when, when....

....will we see what we've become?
When separate souls are one,
you just pick up your gun and walk away.

When, when, when...

...will we slip behind the sun?
when all is said and done,
who can say?

verse 3:
I'm going to stay with you and watch the days go by,
far into the morning hours where the sunlight cannot hide.
Won't you let me give me what your daddy wouldn't let you?
Won't, oh won't you let me free your love that's locked so deep inside?

chorus:
When, when, when....

....will we see what we've become?
When separate souls are one,
you just pick up your gun and walk away.

When, when, when...

...will we slip behind the sun?
when all is said and done,
who can say?
