If You Walk Away

If you walk away
Don’t expect me to chase after you
Don’t expect me to fight for a dream
Deep in your heart won’t come true

If you walk away
Don’t think I’m gonna negotiate
I’m gonna trust the hands of fate
And know that deeply, you knew

It was time for you to go
It was time for you decide
To show me what you felt inside
You had to swallow your pride
Know it’s the right thing to do
It was time for you to make
A break for it away from me
So you could finally be free
Cause I was makin’ you so blue
And if you walk away, walk away
Cause I’d do the same thing, too

If you walk away
Pack up and leave my things
You can keep all those rings
I gave you on your special days

If you walk away
Don’t look back, you’ll be surprised
Tears won’t be falling from my eyes
My blood pressure won’t be raised

I’ll know it was time for you to go
It was time you stood up to me
Rather than tolerate my b.s.
This ain’t what love is meant to be
Just move on, protect yourself
Leave me alone and do it fast
If you think this isn’t gonna last
Cause baby, we’d be happier apart
So if you walk away, walk away
Know you won’t be breaking my heart

Oh no… Babe I love you,
but you won’t be breaking my heart
