Walk Away

What did I do, what did I say To make you turn and walk away You carried my heart in your hand I couldn’t make you understand That I have been true, so true From the moment that I met you You can’t even begin to accuse Do you know what you stand to lose My heart does not lie, it does not cheat My “I love you” is real and so complete Bring back my heart if you decide That I can not ever be your bride Please don’t just toss it on the ground No truer love could ever be found You turned around and walked away Not even giving me a chance to say A word in return to your accusation Nor time to come to the realization Someone has told you that they saw me In the arms of another, so you set me free Do you know who it was that they saw Did you think to hear my side at all They could not have known much about me It was my brother and none other don’t you see He was only congratulating me on my success So you see there was nothing for me to confess A dear price was paid for you not to trust Walk away and never return if you must But, darling, when you have had time to think When sleep won’t come, not even a wink You’ll know the love that you’ve just thrown away You’ll beg to return to me come light of day
