I WALKED AWAY

I loved a woman but every time 
She turned around she changed her mind, 
And yet I'd stay--and yet I'd stay. 
I stuck it out, it was a strain, 
But now I finally used my brain 
I walked away--I'm finally free. 
     Well, yes, I guess I miss her in the ending of the day, 
     But that's the way I felt when I was with her  
     anyway. 
 
I got a room, I sleep alone, 
It's fine for now, it's like a home. 
I stayed away, I'll stay away. 
I used to think I would feel bad,  
I was afraid I would be sad, 
I walked away, I'm finally free. 
     I'm surprised I left her, guess I never thought I could. 
     I go back to my room and there is no one there, and it feels

     so good. 
 
Drummers dancing wild with rhythms flashing on my mornings 
No one to ask, "Well, what are you going to do?" 
My dream awakes me now, it leaves me blinking, almost blind, 
No one to remind me, "Well, it's up to you." 
My mind is mine these days, my mind is mine. 
 
I made the break I had to make, 
I took the chance I had to take, 
I walked away, I'm finally free. 
It feels so fine to be so free, 
There's no We now, there's only Me. 
I walked away, I'm finally free. 
     I was so afraid to be alone 
     Now I'm on my own 
     And here I Go.

C         F               C 
I loved a woman but every time 
 
            F                     C 
She turned around she changed her mind, 
 
            F                 C7 
And yet I'd stay--and yet I'd stay. 
 
C          F             C 
I stuck it out, it was a strain, 
 
          F               C 
But now I finally used my brain 
 
          F    C           C7 
I walked away--I'm finally free. 
 
           A              G               Dm            A 
     Well, yes, I guess I miss her in the ending of the day, 
 
     G                    F               Em 
     But that's the way I felt when I was with her  
 
     Bb A 
     anyway.
