After carefully considerin' the whole situation
I stand with my back to the wall
Walkin' is better than runnin' away
And crawlin' ain't no good at all

And if guilty's the question
Truth is the answer
I've been lyin' to me all alone
There ain't nothin' worth savin'
Except one another
And before you'll wake up
I'll be gone
Cause after carefully considerin' the whole situation
I stand with my back to the wall
Walkin' is better than runnin' away
And crawlin' ain't no good at all

[ guitar ]
After carefully considerin' the whole situation
I stand with my back to the wall
Walkin' is better than runnin' away
And crawlin' ain't no good at all
And crawlin' ain't no good at all

    Depends on the situation. Songwriters usually don't tell "why" and this is for my friend due to the
    death of his sister. Never had that meaning for me. This person is very close to willie, personally.
