The Magnetic Fields – All You Ever Do Is Walk Away lyrics

Sad as a painted clown, a beautiful boy in an ugly town
But when your circus closes down don't walk away from me
You've been asleep too long, the birds are bruises in the dawn
The pounds of flesh between us stretch as far as you can see

But all you ever do is walk away and I know if you'd only go slow

You could see what it means to be making the scene with me
But all you ever do is walk away and I think if you tried
You could find a little time
For the life I can see in your eyes, don't go. Don't go.

Sometimes you just explode and no one alive can break your code
You have a language of your own, an unconnected road
The people you called your friends, the places you won't go again
The decades lost in finding them, you'll have to let them go.

But all you ever do is walk away and I know if you'd only go slow
