Walk Away Lyrics - Franz Ferdinand

Review The Song (12)

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
Why don't you walk away
The sun won't swallow the sky
Why don't you walk away?
Statues will not cry

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

La la la la...

And as you walk away
Oh, as you walk away

And 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 Four 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 and Hitler laughs
Churchill claps Mao Tse Tung on the back

Hey, Anon, you realise that Scotland is PART of the UK, right? So are Northern Ireland and Wales. It's the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Scotland is somewhere between a third and a quarter of Great Britain whose space it shares with England and Wales.

great song from great britain's greatest band | Reviewer: dude | 11/5/09

To Mr. anonymous, Franz ferdinand is a scottish band but scotland is constituent country within the united kingdom, so they are a UK and scottish band, so what KonF said was correct. plus most of the members of the group were born in england, jesus learn some geography.

-l,,l Amazin' song! The best best song of the best UK band!

Striking after all | Reviewer: Ruy | 9/16/06

After listening to it on the radio one afternoon, this song could not leave my head and I had to have it. I am not a Franz Ferdinand fan and after listening to it for a hundred times, I realized that it could have come from Jim Morrison. Pure envy!

alright | Reviewer: nufc4europe | 12/30/05

This is alot better than anything else this band has done, but it is a one off. This is not typical of Franz Ferdinand at all, because everything else apart from take me out is absolute rubbish

WOW | Reviewer: Lizard | 12/22/05

It became one of my favorite songs since the first time i heard it!
It sound like Pulp, and that's why is a great song!
