Katzenjammer I Will Dance (When I Walk Away) Lyrics

In a cold and empty house
I lingered now for far too long
I vainly held a rosary
To pray you'll stay with me a while

But nothing seems to keep me here
The way we used to do before
This time it's me that's leaving you
I'll never turn around

'Cause when the laughter is gone
I know I must be moving on

And I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing
I won't beg or pray
I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing
I won't beg or pray
No more

I'm standing at the crossroads now
The fields of opportunity
I'm ready to go anywhere
I'm full of hope and full of fear

And bridges is back have all been burned
And freedom has been duly earned
I remember why I've gone
Remember where I'm coming from

Oh, when the laughter is gone
Uh, I know I must be moving on

And I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing
I won't beg or pray

I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing
I won't beg or pray

I'm gonna leave my mask with you
The part I played, I never knew
Tonight, you're alone

And I will dance when I walk away
And I will dance when I walk away
And I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing
I won't beg or pray
I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing
I won't beg or pray

This is not a home for me
