"Walk Away" as written by Daniel John O'donoghue, Mark Anthony Sheehan, Bobby Ray Jr. Simmons, Glen Joseph Power and Benjamin Allan Sargeant....
I don't know why she's with me
I only brought her trouble since the day she met me
If I was her, by now I would have left me
I would have walked away
But now I've broken away
Somehow instead she forgave me
She said a woman's got to do what she's got to do
Even if it means she denied herself the truth
'Cause when you're in too deep you wake up when it's too late,
You've fallen in love in the worst way
And if you don't go now then you'll stay
'Cause I'll never let you leave, never let you breathe
'Cause if you're looking for heaven, baby it sure as hell ain't me

So walk away
(walk away)
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
So walk away
(walk away)
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
But still she stays

She's standing in the heart of darkness
Saying I know you got a soul even though you're heartless
How could any woman in their right mind be so blind,
To find something this safe
Instead of walking with me she should have walked away

She finds color in the darkest places
She finds beauty in the saddest of faces
For such a clued in, headstrong city girl
Could've had the world but she's fallen in love in the worst way
And if you don't go now then you'll stay
'Cause I'll never let you leave, never let you breathe
'Cause if you're looking for heaven, baby it sure as hell ain't me

So walk away
(walk away)
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
So walk away
(walk away)
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
But still she stays
(Oh, yeah)
But still she stays
(Oh, yeah)

I don't know why she's with me
I only brought her trouble since the day she met me
If I was her, by now I would have left me
I would have walked away

But you've fallen in love in the worst way
And if you don't go now then you'll stay
'Cause I'll never let you leave, never let you breathe
'Cause if you're looking for heaven, baby it sure as hell ain't me

So walk away
(walk away)
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
So walk away
(walk away)
Walk away, oh
Save yourself from the heartache, oh
Go now before it's too late
But still she stays

(Yeah)
But still she stays, eh
I'm saying walk away
Yeah
I'm saying walk away
(Save yourself from the heartache, go now before it's too late)
But still she stays
Still she stays
Yeah, she stays
She stays

    Song MeaningI thing the meaning is pretty obvious on the surface, a girl who is in love with a person who is bad for her. She stays because she is so in love and is trying to believe, with everything she has, left that they will change - a really sad song but I know a lot of people are like this poor girl :(

    My InterpretationThis song reminds me of Beauty and the Beast - or at least how the Beast would feel about Beauty staying with him and falling in love with him.

    My InterpretationThis song perfectly fits with what I'm feeling right now. It's been a year that I've been diagnosed with BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) and MDD (Major Depressive Disorder). I've been struggling with this condition most of my life even before I went with a psychiatrist. Most of my relationships have been problematic but since I was diagnosed I couldn't even accept me (so I couldn't ask someone else to love me). Now I have a girlfriend that wants to be at my side in spite of all those things I can't control. Most of the time I don't get the reasons why she wants to be with me and I insist that she would be better off without me. If I had to write a song about my feelings I would come up with something like this song.

    General CommentIts not about a bad relationship that she can't/won't leave. Depending on which version its two different stories.
    Feat BOB- its a play with the two groups on different sides, the rapper is telling her that this is who I am and although I love you I'm not going to change to fit what you want me to be. It doesn't matter to him he's still going to do his thing her there or not. In this the script follow the meaning they had in the single with no rap

    Plain- Its the males few of this girl who no matter has stood by him. And no matter how much he's hurt her, and what he's put her though she's still there though he doesn't understand why.
