"Walk Away" as written by and George/dokken Lynch....
So you say you fell in love
And you're gonna get married
Raise yourself a family
How simple life can be
Somewhere it all went wrong
And your plan just fell apart
And you ain't got the heart
To finish what you started

Yeah you fell in love
And you went and got married
Had yourself a family
How simple life can be
Somewhere it all went wrong
And your plan just fell apart
And you ain't got the heart
To finish what you started

The ones that you loved
The ones that you left behind
The ones that you said you tried to find
They tried to find you

The ones that you loved
The ones that you left behind
The ones that you said you tried to find
They tried to find you

Somewhere it all went wrong
And your plan just fell apart
And you ain't got the heart
To finish what you started
You walked out that door
To find out where you belong
To fulfill your own selfish dreams
I think you might have forgotten

The ones that you loved
The ones that you left behind
The ones that you said you tried to find
They tried to find you

The ones that you loved
The ones that you left behind
The ones that you said you tried to find
They tried to find you

    General Commentacually, i think its about the last lead singer they had, the new one is saying :'the ones you loved...you left behind...etc.' so thats my oppionion

    General CommentI think it has something to do with Spicey McHaggis who left the band because he met a girl (from the Spicey McHaggis Jig) she was preolly a big girl, but you gotta have love for the big girls.... I dunno? i could be wrong but after hearing of him leaving it's always how i pictured this song representing

    General Commentyour all looking too deep! its about exactly what the lyrics say
    a dude marries someone. but hes not too good with long relationships. so leaves them secretly. then never has the heart to find them again
