Walk Away

Franz Ferdinand

I swapped my innocence for pride
Crushed the end within my stride
Said I'm strong
Now I know that I'm a leaver
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
Won't you walk away?
No quake will split the ground
Won't you walk away?
The sun won't swallow the sky
Won't you walk away?
Statues will not cry
Won'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

And I'm not cold, I am old
At least as old as you are

La la la la la la la la

And as you walk away
Oh, as you walk away
Oh, as you walk away

My headstone crumbles down
As you walk away
The Hollywood winds will howl
As you walk away
The Kremlin's falling
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

The stab of stiletto on a silent night
Stalin smiles, Hitler laughs
Churchill claps
Mao Tse-Tung on the back
