Jewel – Walk Away lyrics

Don抰 say I love you, I won抰 say that I care
I抣l pretend I never kissed you, or held you, or worshipped you
I swear
I抣l live in denial for as long as I live
Cuz *what I need baby, this love just can抰 give
We have to walk away
We have to walk away

I抣l try not to sing, you抣l try not to talk with those lips
We抣l forget all the sweet memories, and now we'll just go with what
Cuz this love ain抰 loving, and I don抰 know why
But anything that stands so still can抰 be alive
We have to walk away
We have to walk away

But there were times our love was, so sweet
And it抯 *memory that makes me want to make it last
But you can抰 make love work, anymore than you can make it leave
And it抯 then you gotta leave it yourself

Cuz when love ain抰 loving but still ain抰 leaving
It抯 then you gotta leave it yourself

Now jealousy can ride your heart like a sick kind of pony
And envy抯 just the same
And your loneliness can consume you no matter how much love you had
And when it all boils down, baby, there抯 no other way
And I *care much more than to make you stay
We have to walk away
We have to walk away

So at night, when darkness fills me,
I抣l pretend you never spoke my name
When I抦 sitting home that lonely,
I抣l pretend you抮e home and lonely, oh just the same
And I抣l pretend this sorrow, this sorrow will pass
And I抣l try to pretend that this loneliness won抰 last
And that I抣l walk away
Yeah, yeah, yeah


So don抰 say
So don抰 say I love you
I won抰 say that I care
