"Walk Away" as written by Alecia B Moore and Tim Armstrong....
I gave you three years of my life
You always said I'd be your wife
What happened to the days when
Life was simple (So Simple)
Everyone knows my name
I haven't changed, I'm the same girl
I was from the start
Everything's rearranged, you came
And changed it and gave me a broken heart
You don't want to work it out, no
You want to take the easy route

[Chorus]
You throw your hands up and you walk away
When times get hard you always walk away
You get mad and say you're leavin'
Why is it so hard for you to talk to me?
When it's so easy for you to walk away

So here I am, driving down the street
Lookin' for a sign, when will I meet
The man of my dreams?
When will he come to me?
When will he come to me?
I'm sick of trying, I'm goin' home back
To PA where I come from
And you can stay here and spend your
Whole life running, But baby I'm
Gonna move on
You don't want to work it out, no
You want to take the easy route

[Chorus]


So there I go, I'm leavin' you alone
What will you do, now all your fears
Came true
You had my heart, you had my soul
You had it all- didn't you
Cause I'm sick of tryin' I'm goin' home
Back to Philly where I come from
And you can stay here and spend your
Whole life running, but baby it's
Time to move on
You didn't want to work it out, no
You just wanted the easy route

[Chorus]

I'm gonna do the same
I'm gonna walk away
I'm gonna walk away
How does it feel baby?
I'm gonna walk away

    General CommentI love this song, it's about someone who really just doesn't want to bother with a relationship and doesn't reciprocate anything you do for them so you have to leave em. that's my interpretation anyway

    General CommentThis song is probably about the same person shes singing about in ‘who knew’. That’s because it mentions ‘3 years’ at the beginning which is also mentioned in ‘who knew’ – ‘if someone said three years from now…’

    General CommentI doubt that Walk Away and Who Knew are about the same person.
    I think Walk Away is about Carey. Cause she told in an interview (youtube.com/…) that when they argue he walks away rather than talking about it. And they've had their on-off moments.
    Who Knew is about a friend of hers who died of an overdose. The '3 years' thingy is just a coincidence imo.
