The tenth of may
It seems so far away
When you and I were strangers moving close together

Sometimes it seems
It’s almost like a dream
Driving across the country and the road is endless

If I were you
Don’t wait until tomorrow
I’d lead and wouldn’t follow

Walk away - today
If I were you - please listen
Walk away - I’d say
If I were you ’go away’

The first of june
The summer came too soon
But from the day we met I knew you’d never go away

Sometimes I feel
The passion’s not so real

Finding it strange to be together, not alone

If I were you
I’d smile and close the door
I’d never ask for more
Walk away - don’t stay
If I were you - believe me
Walk away - I’d say
If I were you ’go away’

Fourth of july
With an independent sigh
I think the time’s arrived to take what’s going to happen

Wise men may say
It’s easier to stay
But if you are there I’m only wasting time


If I were you
I know I’d want to hurt me
It wouldn’t disconcert me
Walk away - I’d pray
If I were you - I’d leave me

Walk away - today

If I were you - please listen
Walk away - don’t stay
If I were you - believe me
Walk away - I’d pray
If I were you - I’d leave me

Walk away
Walk away
Walk away
Walk away

I’d leave if I were you
