"Don't Walk Away" as written by Edward Theodore Riley, Richard Stites, Reed Philip Vertelney and Michael Kurt Jackson....
Don't walk away
See I just can't find the right thing to say
I tried but all my pain gets in the way
Tell me what I have to do so you'll stay
Should I get down on my knees and pray

[Chorus]
And how can I stop losing you
How can I begin to say
When there's nothing left to do but walk away

I close my eyes
Just to try and see you smile one more time
But it's been so long now all I do is cry
Can't we find some love to take this away
Cause the pain gets stronger every day

[Chorus 2]
How can I begin again
How am I to understand
When there's nothing left to do but walk away

See now why
All my dreams been broken
I don't know where we're going
Everything we said and all we done now
Don't let go, I don't want to walk away
Now why
All my dreams are broken
Don't know where we're going
Everything begins to set us free
Can't you see, I don't want to walk away

If you go, I won't forget you girl
Can't you see that you will always be
Even though I had to let you go
There' nothing left to do
Don't walk away

    General CommentI really like this song. It's very different from Michael's other songs.
    It's about breaking up, heartbreak and broken dreams. He's disappointed and almost begging her not to end the relationship and walk awy from him.
    Beautiful and painful at the same time.

    General CommentThis song appears to be about Lisa Marie.

    It seems like a lot of songs on Invincible are about their relationship.

    General CommentThe entire Invincible album is full of sad songs that make me cry. They're beautiful, but sad at the same time.

    General CommentTo me this song is about pleading for someone not to abandon and walk away from their family.
