There you are, underneath someone else's lucky streak
Is that the way you like it?
Is that the way you like it?
And you believe a picture takes a little piece of you away
Is that the way you like it?
Is that the way you like it?

Be wary, love, be careful
It's only skin, and therefore
So breakable, but take heart
It's only a part of who you are

Don't you wonder why everybody cries
Every time you walk away, walk away, walk away
Don't you know the sun, rising when you come,
Follows when you walk away, walk away, walk away
Don't you walk away, walk away, walk away

You believe you've been crowned with your own private thundercloud
Is that the way you like it?
Is that the way you like it?
But you don't need remote control to tell you that you're beautiful
But that's the way you like it
Is that the way you like it?

Be wary, love, be careful
It's only skin, and therefore
So breakable, but take heart
It's only a part of who you are

Don't you wonder why everybody cries
Every time you walk away, walk away, walk away
Don't you know the sun, rising when you come,
Follows when you walk away, walk away, walk away
Don't you walk away, walk away, walk away

Didn't anybody tell you you don't have to, you don't have to jump
Only do it if you like it, if you don't like it, you don't have to jump
Just remember what it's like when you walk away
Oh, just remember that we cry when you walk away

Be wary and be careful
It's only skin, and therefore
So breakable, but take heart
It's only a part of who you are

Don't you wonder why everybody cries
Every time you walk away, walk away, walk away
Don't you know the sun, rising when you come,
Follows when you walk away, walk away, walk away
Don't you walk away, walk away, walk away

Don't walk away, walk away, walk away

    General CommentI think it's supposed to be:

    "be wary love, be careful
    It's only skin and therefore
    so breakable but take heart
    it's only part of who you are."

    I'm not sure about the "be wary" part but I can definitely tell that it's "breakable" and not "break a boy"

    I think this song is about a girl or boy who doesn't feel like they're enough, but the singer is trying to reassure them. "And you believe a picture takes a little piece of you away" reminds me of a young girl looking at a magazine and feeling inferior, along with the line "But you don't need remote control to tell you that you're beautiful "

    I love anna nalick, her song writing is brilliant and her voice is so gorgeous!
