"Look Away" as written by and Diane Warren....
When you called me up this mornin'
Told me 'bout the new love you found
I said, "I'm happy for you, I'm really happy for you"

Found someone else
I guess I won't be comin' 'round
I guess it's over, baby
It's really over baby, whoa

And from what you said
I know you've gotten over me
It'll never be the way it used to be
So if it's gotta be this way
Don't worry baby, I can take the news, okay

But if you see me walkin' by
And the tears are in my eyes
Look away, baby, look away

If we meet on the streets someday
And I don't know what to say
Look away, baby, look away
Don't look at me
I don't want you to see me this way

When we both agreed as lovers
We were better off as friends
That's how it had to be
Yeah, that's how it had to be

I tell you I'm fine
But sometimes I just pretend
Wish you were holdin' me
Wish you were still holdin' me, whoa

I just never thought
That I would be replaced so soon
I wasn't prepared to hear those words from you
I know I wanted to be free
Yeah, baby, this is how we wanted it to be

But if you see me walkin' by
And the tears are in my eyes
Look away, baby, look away

And if we meet on the streets someday
And I don't know what to say
Look away, baby, look away
Don't look at me
I don't want you to see me this way

If you see me walkin' by
And the tears are in my eyes
Look away, baby, look up away

And if we meet on the streets someday
And I don't know what to say
Look away, baby, look away
Don't look at me
I don't want you to see me this way

If you see me walkin' by
And the tears are in my eyes
Look away, baby, look away
Don't look at me
I don't want you to see me this way

When you called me up this mornin'
Told me 'bout the new love you found
I said, "I'm happy for you, I'm really happy for you"

    General CommentThe ex-girlfriend is just rubbing in the fact that she moved on and that it was hiss loss of breaking up. It is so obvious that he's not over her.It's really sad.

    General Commentman..this song is so sad...and to me it's about a couple that decided they would be better off and friends...they were trying to be friends but then the girl ends up getting another guy..and he's happy 4 her..but he can't deny that it still hurts him to see her w/ some1 else..and even if they both accept that it's over...there's always gonna be that small part inside that's gonna still want her

    General CommentThere's always a day when parting has to come in a relationship. When I first got to know you, it was in year 2002, we hardly know each other. Today, when everything is clearly over, we still do not know each other well, it doesn't matter.
    I remember I'd said before to myself that I wouldn't want to go into a relationship with you, but neither do I want to say goodbye to you. If there's ever a day when we no longer keep in contact, this song best describe my words to you. It happened.
    If you ever see me on the street one day, look away girl, cos I don't know what to say to you, but you'll always have my blessings, forever.
    The last time we met up is on this year's Valentine's Day. The last time I heard from you is on the 22nd Jun. The last time we were on the phone, was on your b'day. This is the longest goodbye we've ever had...
    You'll always be on my mind, forever be...
