"Don't Walk Away Eileen" as written by and Sam Lewis Roberts....
Don't walk away Eileen
I've been living for you since the age of seventeen
Don't walk away Eileen
You've been telling lies and now it's time to come clean

Hey! You come around and I can't keep time
Hey! You turn around and I'm left behind

Eileen says I'm a boy not a man
Cryin' on the corner with my head in my hands
I called her name and she ran
Slippin' through my fingers like a fist full of sand

Hey! You come around and I lose my hand
Hey! You turn around and I'm left for dead

And she reads my mind when I'm sleeping
And she always arrives when I'm leaving
Yeah she's blocking out the sun, it seems
You're a pacifist with a gun, Eileen

    General CommentThis is a great song. I have yet to hear a Sam Roberts song I don't like.

    The lyrics are pretty much right except for where it says "like a fish full of sand" it should be "like a fist full of sand"

    General CommentOh my god, this song is almost like a situation I'm going through...

    Haven't heard the song, but heard Brother Down, so I'm just exploring...

    (goes to d/l his song)

    Question, is there a CD with all his songs yet? Or is there not enough yet? He rocks with his rythms and his lyrics.
