When I Walk Away - Poem by Angelica Duardo

You know the right words to say
When I walk away
You know how right it feels to love
When I walk away

To say the words you want to say
Can break me apart
So keep everything harsh inside
And just say you need my love

How long would you stay here with me
If I say I need you near?
How much would you love me still?
How long would you play this game too?

I’ll take every tear
Turn around
And walk out
Away, away from you

I know you'll say the words I long to hear
But I will walk away, pretend not to hear
Walk away, until I am not near

And every day I still wonder
How long would you stay here with me
If I say I need you near?
How much would you love me still?
How long would you play this game too?

Though you know the right words to say when I walk away
This time I will not turn around, I will walk away
I will walk away
