Walking Away

I sometimes shed a tear and a secret smile every time I see your face
then grin like a naughty child full of innocence and grace
my memory is growing old but is filled with thoughts of you
of our first kiss our first home and when we said I do
I releived your in a better place with your new home and family
to see you smile now from a distance is an image that ill keep
keep locked so deep in my heart that it will never fade away
and ill turn my world around that will be my fate

now im walking away 
not stop till tomorrow
walking away from me myself and I

I tried to block out thought of you so I didnt loose my mind
or reliving the past each and every day from 6 till half past nine
all id do is look out the window and roll the stars and the moon
into playdough in my hand
then finaly I would fall down into a pit that was my time
where nobody could hear me scream or even hear me cry

walking away 
for a new tomorrow
walking away from me myself and I

so its with a new day that I breath
to open up a new world with my heart no longer on my sleave
to live for the day is human not to dwell upon the past
to wish now for the future  not to wish this day was my last

it s been a whole year now since I went away to try and stop my dreams
from overcoming my emotions and making my heart bleed
now as i lye upon the beech in spain I just offer you a prayer
that you dont end up like me in a land of pain and dispair

walking away 
for a new tomorrow
walking away from me myself and I
walking away 
for a new tomorrow
walking away from me myself and I
