Connie Smith – Walk Out Backwards lyrics

Walk out backwards
(Bill Anderson)
" © '60 Moss Rose Publications "

(Walk out backwards and I'll think you're walking in)
I'd rather live a life of lies and fantasy
Than to face the truth and realize you're leaving me
You built me up so high my heart can't stand the fall
And life without your love just isn't life at all
So walk out backwards if you must go
And please don't wave goodbye just wave one last hello
The truth won't hurt so much if I can't just pretend
So walk out backwards and I'll think you're walking in
You walked into my heart in search of sympathy
And from that day down to this you've walked all over me
And now you're walking out to find somebody new
But you're not by yourself cause my heart's leaving too
Walk out backwards...
Walk out backwards and I'll think you're walking in
