Walk on, walk on
What you got, they can't deny it
Can't sell it, or buy it
Walk on, walk on
You stay safe tonight


Are you joking?

No, really. Are you?

Self-preservation wins, hands down, every time. The rest doesn't matter if you're not still alive. What's your alternative here, getting forgiveness from someone as you die in their arms? Please. Overrated, romantic claptrap.

You do what you need to do to get by. To take care of yourself, because no one else is going to take care of you. You live, you fight, you breathe, you sigh, you walk on.

Sometimes people think you might need to ask for forgiveness for the things you've done, but don't buy it. I mean, you do something malicious, maybe you should, but if it's a choice between those two? Between self-preservation or forgiveness. You take care of yourself and let the next life worry about forgiveness.

Besides, who says there is forgiveness anyway? Who says it exists? That it's possible? That someone can forgive? And even if they say they have? They don't forget. They never forget. They're always wary. Always watching for the next time you're going to do them wrong.

There is no such thing as forgiveness.

Walk on

And love is not the easy thing
The only baggage that you can bring
Love is not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can't leave behind...

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Oh, oh
Walk on, walk on
What you got, they can't steal it
No, they can't even feel it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
A place that has to be believed, to be seen
You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly, for freedom

Oh, oh
Walk on, walk on
What you got, they can't deny it
Can't sell it, or buy it
Walk on, walk on
You stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
And your heart, it breaks
You can only take so much

Walk on...
Walk on...

Home...
Hard to know what it is, if you never had one
Home...
I can't say where it is, but I know I'm going
Home...
That's where the hurt is...

And I know it aches
And your heart, it breaks
And you can only take so much

Walk on...
(Hooo)

Leave it behind
You got to leave it behind
All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you feel

All this you can leave behind

All that you reason, (it's only time)
(Love is a feeling on my mind)
All that you sense
All that you scheme
All you dress-up
All that you've seen
All you create
All that you wreck
All that you hate

Thank you.

For the picture space.

For the rose.

Both are highly appreciated.
