Just Walk Away

Just Walk Away

 

I know I never loved this way before
And no one else has loved me more
With you I’ve laughed and cried
I have lived and died
What I wouldn’t do just to be with you

I know I must forget you to go on
I can’t hold back my tears too long
Though life won’t be the same
I’ve got to take the blame
And find the strength I need to let you go

Just walk away
Just say goodbye
Don’t turn around now you may see me cry
I mustn’t fall apart
Or show my broken heart
Or the love I feel for you

So walk away
And close the door
And let my life be as it was before
And I’ll never never know
Just how I let you go
But there’s nothing left to say
Just walk away

There’ll never be a moment I’ll regret
I’ve loved you since the day we met
For all the love you gave
And all the love we made
I know I’ve got to find the strength to say

Just walk away
Just say goodbye
Don’t turn around now you may see me cry
I mustn’t fall apart
Or show my broken heart
Or the love I feel for you

So walk away
And close the door
And let my life be as it was before
And as you leave
I know I love you more
Just how I let you go
But there’s nothing left to say
Just walk away.

 

 

The Color of the Night

 

“The Color Of The Night”

You and I moving in the dark
Bodies close but souls apart
Shadowed smiles and secrets unrevealed
I need to know the way you feel

I’ll give you everything I am
And everything I want to be
I’ll put it in your hands
If you could open up to me oh
Can’t we ever get beyond this wall

‘Cause all I want is just once to see you in the light
But you hide behind the color of the night

I can’t go on running from the past
Love has torn away this mask
And now like clouds like rain I’m drowning and
I blame it all on you I’m lost God save me

I’ll give you everything I am
And everything I want to be
I’ll put it in your hands
If you could open up to me oh
Can’t we ever get beyond this wall

‘Cause all I want is just once to see you in the light
But you hide behind the color of the night

I’ll give you everything I am
And everything I want to be
I’ll put it in your hands
If you could open up to me oh
Can’t we ever get beyond this wall

‘Cause all I want is just once forever and again
I’m waiting for you, I’m standing in the light
But you hide behind the color of the night
Please come out from the color of the night.

Death Is Nothing At All

By Henry Scott-Holland

Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened.

Everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I, and you are you,
and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?

Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just round the corner.

All is well.
Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!
