"Walking Away" as written by and Pasquale James/terwilliger Gasperini....
The day I left you was the worst mistake I ever made
Was ready to become something I didn't need you dragging me down
Thought your love just wasn't enough
My hair combed, nice shoes tied tight

Was ready to conquer life
Help unwanted I can do this on my own and then I found myself wounded
Tripping over myself, falling and scraping my knee
Sadness fills for I know I've failed

Why did I leave scared to go back
Hoping you'll take me in with open arms
But also know the hurt I've caused
The breeze of angel wings

Standing there a midst of lowers of every being
Tears grow and orchestra begins to play
What a beautiful day, why are you alone
Run child it's time for you to go home

Wounded spirit face in the dirt
I cry out for you to take me in
Your heart holds me close, and
I look up to face this world which so scares me

Faith in you loneliness just seems to fade.
The man once inside now a child walking in your footsteps
Hoping held leaves under feet from the trees of fall
Listening to autumn's call

A deep breathe to continue on, fragile
Depending on you Christ carry's me the rest of the walk

    General CommentI believe this song is about how he fell away from Christ and rejected Christ. Then he realized his mistake and came back and now lives his life for Jesus again.

    "wounded spirit face in the dirt
    i cry out for you to take me in
    your heart holds me close, and
    i look up to face this world which so scares me

    This song is obviously about how Dallas turned away from God. When he finally realized he couldn't do anything on his own, he went back and God lovingly accepted him.

    General Commenti think its funny..like, you go to alot of christian bands lyrics, and people leave comments like "this band is so effin amazing! it's crazy sh**. i mean, it kicks a**."

    it cracks me up.

    General CommentIt really seems to be about the prodigal son parable that Jesus tells in the Bible. If you've ever read or heard it then it's pretty obvious.
