"Walk Away" as written by Stevie Hayes and Peter Kelly....
I have been angry for so long I let you know
Should?ve walked way when I was young, I let you go
I turned away but maybe I was wrong

Been polishing blame for so long now
My pride and joy
Been in tragedy never hurt
Somehow this man became a boy
You took the blame but
Maybe I was wrong

Oooh

Walk away now and be gone
You don?t have to want to go on
I can see it?s killing you
You don?t always have to be so strong for me
Every angel had dirty hands
Even Judas planned to just carry on
Just picking up the pieces of what lies behind those sorrowful eyes
You can walk away

You have been silent for so long I let the world know
I turned a bit of my pain into a song then carried on

You took my shame but maybe that was wrong


Walk away now and be gone
You don?t have to want to go on
Even when they?re killing you
You don?t always have to be so strong for me
Every angel had dirty hands
Even Judas planned to just carry on
Just picking up the pieces of what lies behind those sorrowful eyes
You can walk away

Now and be strong
I know you can carry on
Walk away now and be gone
Cause you don?t have to want to carry all the pain inside you
Cause the blood in me is your blood every time I fall

Walk away now and be gone
Even when its killing you
You don?t always have to be, so strong for me
Walk away now and be gone
Cause you know even Judas planned to just carry on
Still picking up the pieces of what lies behind those sorrowful eyes
You can walk away

And now and be strong
You don?t have to carry on

Walk away now and be strong

You don?t have to wanna go on

Walk away now and be strong
You don?t have to wanna go on

Walk away
Walk away now
Walk away now
Ooohh

You don?t have to go on
You don?t have to be strong
Walk away now

You can walk away

    General CommentAn unbelievable powerful song. This song captivates such pain in a relationship. He is telling his partner how much he loves her/him but he can't help hurting them. The partner has done everything in the relationship and has held them together for so long but Darren Hayes is telling them to walk away from him, he loves you too much to keep hurting you. He doesn't blame you for just leaving this relationship, the other person has bled too much for the both of them and now you must walk away. Darren Hayes is saying that until he gets over his wounds he can never truly love you like you deserve it

    General CommentPretty sure it's about his dad. He wrote some pretty strong and not-so-good stuff about his dad in previous songs: "I turned a bit of my pain into a song". But now he's forgiven his father, but can accept it if his father is hurt for his previous comments "You took my shame but maybe that was wrong" Hopefully I'm making sense.
    The father theory also fits the line: "Because the blood in me is your blood every time I fall"
