I don't know why she's with me
I only brought her trouble since the day she met me
If I was her, by now I would have left me
I would have walked away
But now I've broken away
Somehow instead she forgave me
She said a woman's got to do what she's got to do
Even if it means she denied herself the truth
Cause when you're in too deep you wake up when it's too late,
You've fallen in love in the worst way
And if you don't go now then you'll stay
Cause I'll never let you leave, never let you breathe
Cause if you're looking for heaven, baby it sure as hell ain't me

So walk away
[Walk away]
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
So walk away
[Walk away]
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
But still she stays

She's standing in the heart of darkness
Saying I know you got a soul even though you're heartless
How could any woman in their right mind be so blind,
To find something this safe
Instead of walking with me she should have walked away

She finds color in the darkest places
She finds beauty in the saddest of faces
For such a groovy and headstrong city girl
Could've had the world but she's fallen in love in the worst way
And if you don't go now then you'll stay
Cause I'll never let you leave, never let you breathe
Cause if you're looking for heaven, baby it sure as hell ain't me

So walk away
[Walk away]
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
So walk away
[Walk away]
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
But still she stays
[Oh, yeah]
But still she stays
[Oh, yeah]

I don't know why she's with me
I only brought her trouble since the day she met me
If I was her, by now I would have left me
I would have walked away

But you've fallen in love in the worst way
And if you don't go now then you'll stay
Cause I'll never let you leave, never let you breathe
Cause if you're looking for heaven, baby it sure as hell ain't me

So walk away
[Walk away]
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
So walk away
[Walk away]
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
But still she stays

[Yeah]
But still she stays, eh
I'm saying walk away
Yeah
I'm saying walk away
[Save yourself from the heartache, go now before it's too late]
But still she stays
Still she stays
Yeah, she stays
She stays

    It's almost like he's dangerous and he doesn't want her to get hurt, so he's trying to push her away, but it's not working :) loving it.

    But can someone really be selfless enough to protect someone that they know deserves better? Or would they string them along?
