Walk Away  (Album Version)

Walk Away (Album Version)

Franz Ferdinand

Innocence for pride, crush the end within my stride
Said I'm strong now I know that I'm a leader
I love the sound of you walking away, you walking away
Mascara bleeds a blackened tear
Oh, and I am cold, yes I'm cold, but not as cold as you are
I love the sound of you walking away, you walking away
I love the sound of you walking away, walking away, hey, hey

Why don't you walk away? Why don't you walk away?
Why don't you walk away? No buildings will fall down
Why don't you walk away? No quake will split the ground
Why don't you walk away? The sun won't swallow the sky
Why don't you walk away? Statues will not cry
Why don't you walk away? Why don't you walk away?
Why don't you walk away?
Why don't you walk away?

I cannot turn to see those eyes, as apologies may rise
I must be strong and stay an unbeliever
And love the sound of you walking away, you walking away
Mascara bleeds into my eye
Oh, and I'm not cold, I am old, at least as old as you are

And as you walk away, oh as you walk away
And as you walk away, my headstone crumbles down
As you walk away, the Hollywood winds will howl
As you walk away, the Kremlins falling
Oh, as you walk away, Radio 4 is static
As you walk away, oh, as you walk away
Oh, as you walk away, oh, as you walk away, hey

The stab of stilettos
On a silent night
Stalin smiles and Hitler laughs
Churchill claps Mao Tse-Tung on the back
