Walk Away — Voices In My Mind

Walk Away

by dee on July 10, 2006

Anyone who reads my site or knows me knows that I love music.  I have quite the extensive cd and mp3 collection and listen to all kinds of music depending on how the mood strikes me.  I came to work today in kind of a mellow mood.  It was rainy and dark outside and I really would have preferred to just stay in bed this morning.  I turned on my computer and sat here trying to figure out what I wanted to listen to.  Eventually I settled on Ben Harper.  I thought he would fit the mood I was in and I was right. 

I lined up a few of his cd’s on my Rhapsody playlist, turned the volume up and let the music fill my head.  As I listened, I found a song that I know I’ve heard before, but I never really listened to.  Today I listened and was happy to have found a new favorite.  That’s the great thing about music sometimes.  You can listen and listen to a song and then one day, when you are in the right mood that song takes on new meaning and becomes something beautiful.

Walk Away - by Ben Harper 
Oh, no
Here comes that sun again
That means another day
Without you, my friend

And it hurts me to look into the mirror at myself
And it hurts even more to have to be with somebody else

And it's so hard to do
And so easy to say
But sometimes, sometimes
You just have to walk away
Walk away


So many people to love in my life
Why do I worry about one?
But'a you put the happi- in my -ness
You put the good times into my fun

And it's so hard to do
And so easy to say
But sometimes, sometimes
You just have to walk away
Walk away
And head for the door

We've tried the goodbyes
So many days
We walk in the same direction
So that we could never stray

They say if you love somebody
Then you have got to set them free
But I would rather be locked to you
Than live in this pain and misery

They say that time will make all this go away
But it's time that has taken my tomorrows
And turned them into yesterdays

And once again, that rising sun is a droppin' on down
And once again, you, my friend, are nowhere to be found

And it's so hard to do
And so easy to say
But sometimes, sometimes
You just have to walk away
Walk away
And head for the door

You just walk away
Walk away
Walk away

Just walk on, walk on
Turn and head for the door
You just walk away

I love Ben Harper too… I got my husband hooked on him and that’s all we played around here for awhile.
It still surprises me how similar my husband’s and Your music tastes are!!
