The Walk Lyrics - Imogen Heap

Review The Song (59)



nside-out, upside-down,
Twisting beside myself.
Stop that now,
'Cause you and I were never meant to meet.
I think you'd better leave.
It's not safe in here.
I feel a weakness coming on.


Alright then, (alright then.)
I could keep your number for a rainy day.
That's where this ends.
No mistakes no misbehaving.
I was doing so well.
Could we just be friends?
I feel a weakness coming on.


It's not meant to be like this.
Not what I planned at all.

I don't want to feel like this.
Yeah.
No it's not meant to be like this.
Not what I planned at all.
I don't want to feel like this.
So that makes it all your fault.


Inside-out, upside-down,
Twisting beside myself.
Stop that now.
You're as close as it gets
Without touching me.
Oh now don't make it harder
Than it already is.
I feel a weakness coming on.

It's not meant to be like this.
Not what I planned at all.
I don't want to feel like this.
Yeah.
No it's not meant to be like this.
Not what I planned at all.
I don't want to feel like this.
So that makes it all your fault.


Big trouble losing control.
Primary resistance at a critical low.
on the double gotta get a hold.
Point of no return one second to go.


No response on any level,
Red-alert this vessel's under seige.
Total overload all systems down they've got control.
There's no way out.
We are surrounded.
Give in, give in and relish every minute of it.


Freeze, or make it forever.
I feel a weakness coming on.

It’s not meant to be like this,
Not what I planned at all.
I don’t want to feel like this.
Yeah.
No it’s not meant to be like this,
It's just what I don't need.
Why make me feel like this?
It's definitely all your fault.


Feel like this la la la la la la la la
It’s all your fault (feel like this) la la la la la la la la
It’s all your fault (feel like this) la la la la la la la la
It’s all your fault (feel like this) la la la la la la la la
It’s all your fault.

Haunting | Reviewer: Jerra | 1/13/13

This song is haunting me for quite a while now, and each time I listen to it the lyrics become more fitting for my situation. I didn't realize for a long time what those feeling for this friend of mine were made of, but the song made me realize that there's definitely something that's "not meant to be like this"; we just wouldn't match on another level than friendship, but still, I'm "losing control". It's so hard to bear, but still an experience I don't want to miss. Thanks life, thanks Imogen.

Yes, I don't want to feel like this | Reviewer: Sob | 10/10/12

I've had three quite unsuccessful crushes on the opposite sex and it never worked out. So when I changed schools, I gave myself one rule: Don't fall in love this time.
And for three years I've been successful, not having any crushes on the opposite sex. Problem is, thanks to this song I realised that I have a crush on one of my friends of the same sex, and I just KNOW it won't work out, but I can't do anything.
Haha, the fast part kind of works for a few days ago when two of our friends thought there was something going on between us and they tried to make us confess or whatever. If only my crush really felt back that way for me...

Imogen Heap is absolutely amazing | Reviewer: Meeeee | 9/17/12

Everyone has such a connection with this song I love reading the stories! I met this guy and I really started to like him but it turned out he wanted a certain something from me that I just wasn't willing to give and now we aren't the same and he knows it's his fault. And it is all his fault. Every situation I'm in there's a perfect immi song that fits me so well it brings me to tears. I love Imogen to pieces!!!!

Describe me | Reviewer: Koobatashin | 7/14/12

I was introduced to this song by a girl trying to tell me how she felt. I didn't know she was seriously into me until I heard this. All I did was tease her horribly, but she never really went for it... I kept teasing her horribly after she sent me this song. Haha Xp

My Connection | Reviewer: Samantha | 6/16/12

The way I feel about this song... Or better yet how I connect it to me is that I'm engaged and I've had a couple slip ups with my faithfulness because well... I'm still young. I love my fiance to death, don't get me wrong, but now there's this other guy involved a bit. I've known him for a year (I've known my fiance for 3) and we never really showed interest. Except I've always had a slight crush on him. Recently he just told me how he feels about me. He wished I wasn't in a relationship basically. He's really sweet and all that junk almost exactly like my fiance... He even has the same humor as me even though my fiance doesn't. It's getting me and it's giving me more feelings for him... But I know I'd never leave my fiance, but I really like this guy. =/ What I connect with this song is that this thing with the new guy shouldn't be happening and that I wish it wasn't and that "I was doing so well" staying faithful... So I've just bonded with this song...

:) | Reviewer: SarahZ | 2/19/11

I've had this song so long and I've only recently begun connecting with it. To me this song represents our own insecurities and the defenses we put up when entering any relationship. I've recently met a guy, and like in this song I'm always so insecure and untrusting when it comes to other people. He makes me want to give up my defenses and just trust people.

Life... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/8/11

"Stop that now cause you and I were never meant to be"...The first thing that comes to my mind is my past relationship with my boss...Totally against policy for us to date.
"its not safe in here...I feel a weakness coming in" Thats how we both felt about each other every time we worked together...anything that could raise suspicion would have totally gotten us in trouble.
Sadly, we broke up because it was too much stress at work and I had just gotten out of a serious relationship...never the less I still "keep his number for a rainy day"...We mainly talk about work and the things that we can work on. But "that's where it ends, no misbehaving..."

"You're as close as it gets
Without touching me.
Oh now don't make it harder
Than it already is." Its hard enough that I have to see him at work...to know that he touched every inch of my body but now we are just what were supposed to be...co-worker and manager.

A Ship! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/27/10

Wow, it seems like people really connected with this song. I'm not in a relationship or anything but this is a very impressive song. Every night I mouthed the words in bed but could never figure out what Imogen Heap was saying in the fast part and it bugged me to the point of looking it up. Now I know! I was like, "Wow, it's a ship!" I'm slow, aren't I?

Forbidden | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/7/10

I fell in love with Imogen Heap style right away. Even before acknowledging some of the songs meanings. When listening to this one(my fav.) it reminds me of these forbidden feelings I have toward a teacher (I am a girl btw). I know its weird... But one can't control their emotions (unfortunately). So when I hear the lines "It's not meant to be like this.
Not what I planned at all.
I don't want to feel like this" it really applies too me... And the line "So that makes it all your fault" I find myself trying to hate him with this line... but I can't. Song really hits the nail on the head for me. *sigh" "It's just what I don't need."

complex | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/19/10

I identify with this song on a horrible level. I'm very impressed at Imogen Heaps ability to write a song about such complex emotion.
My situation: The man I love and am currently in a very serious relationship with who is incredible and possibley the most honorable person on the planet....and the man I just met also extremely honorable, so honorable he would never admit to liking me for respect of my current boyfriend. I am not a cheater and would never ever do anything to harm my current love, but I can't stop talking to this other guy or checking his web page when I'm on, and I know it's a problem but how do you stop a feeling you wish you didn't have. "Not meant to be like this, not what I planned at all, I don't want to feel like this" "You and I were never meant to meet" (I wish he had never entered my life and shaken my everything-my weakness, twisting turning) "no mistakes, no misbehaving, ohh I was doing so well, could we just be friends?" (not doing anything but still feeling like you're a horrible cheater "you're as close as it gets without touching me")...I hope he doesn't make it harder than it already is....I want to avoid the end of this song..."trouble loosing control...", but how do you know where you are meant to be?

Situations.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/4/10

This song speaks to a lot of people in a lot of different situations -
For me, it's the fact that I've fallen for a childhood friend of mine. He's not aware of it, and I'm pretty sure he's not intrested in me. I know it's a bad idea, I know it would just mess everything up, I know I would lose my cherished friend...
But I can't stop that emotion. And everytime I see him, or if he mentions some girl, I always hurt. I hope that I can just stop feeling this way, but it's just, I keep hoping, you know? I wish I could just know. I could never tell him I'm too afraid. I just wish I could see into his heart.

"No it's not meant to be like this.
Not what I planned at all.
I don't want to feel like this.
So that makes it all your fault."

Lost and amazed | Reviewer: KrazyKitsune | 3/22/10

This song has filled many different situations for me. For starters, I'm male, that's kinda important to the situations. Anyways, the first one, a "friendship" I had with a girl basicly filled the entire song from beginning to end. The beginnings of it, where we wanted to do things, but were still rather shy, till we did, and then the entire friendship basicly revolved around intimacy and nothing more. Second, me and my last Ex (the girl who introduced me to the song) filled the same situation, except we were also interested in each other. But even then, the physical intimacy was one of the more noticable situations in the relationship. Other minor situations also flow into this...

But lastly, my current relationship, and how it's falling apart infront of my very eyes. Rushed into things... Didn't factor in how we truly are... Major emotional attachment that for some screwed up reason is there... And now it's collapsing. "It's not meant to be like this, not what I planned at all, I don't want to feel like this..." Except... the last part of that quote is towards the breakup. I don't want to feel like it's falling apart...

Life sucks, but this song makes it just a wee bit more bearable

.. | Reviewer: Jo | 12/21/09

Amazing | Reviewer: Jane | 12/2/09

I first heard the song on a video made by someone about syed + christian from eastenders, and it was actually their song! I LOVE this song to pieces + it completley describes their situation (as well as one I had). It's BRILLANT!:D
