"Keep On Walking" as written by Gabrielle Aplin and Nicholas William Atkinson....
Something’s happening you can’t see
(On your way, go on your way)
We are rolling on stormy seas
(On your way, go on your way)
You don’t like when I disagree
(On your way, go on your way)
The lies you’re spinning, you’re changing me
(On your way, go on your way)

But all that glitters is not gold
From the bruises flowers grow
I feel so much better now you’re not around
There’s no one to kick me while I’m down
No one to burn my bridges anymore
So keep on walking
‘Cause I’m not here to make you feel good
To dry up your tears and apologise for you
I feel so much better now you’re not around
So keep on walking out
Ohhhhh

You’ve been whispering way too loud
(On your way, go on your way)
You don’t say sorry, you’re far too proud
(On your way, go on your way)

But all that glitters is not gold
I stayed up to watch you go
I feel so much better now you’re not around
There’s no one to kick me while I’m down
No one to burn my bridges anymore
So keep on walking
'Cause I’m not here to make you feel good
To dry off your tears and apologise for you
I feel so much better now you’re not around
So keep on walking out, out,
Oh, oh, oh
You know I’m happy now, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    My InterpretationFor me this song talks about getting rind of a bad/toxic friendship/relationship.

    This person only hurted you and everytime "she" was around you were sad. Although you never realize that, you thought this person was the best to be around and the only person who was worth your time.

    But someday this person decided to leave you and you felt bad/sad about it, putting the blame on you, thinking you hurt him/her.

    However one day you realized that since she/he left you felt happier, your thoughts became more positive than ever and everything has working very well.

    And you thought for yourself, "Oh my God this is the best that happened to me without I even noticed"
    That's why Gabrielle says "So keep on walking out" You didn't want that person to leave but now that she did (without warning) you saw what they really were and how they made your life a mess! & now that they're gone you're happier, your life is finally moving forward and nobody is putting you down every day!

    I can relate to this song, since my best friend in the world left me for the cool kids at school & after a long time of blaming myself I realized that it wasn't my fault at all, and I feel happier now. Because he was such a bad person to be around, he was always talking about how bad is life was and everytime something good happened he couldn't care less... Plus, when I was happy with something he always put my dream down saying something like "oh big deal" when yes, it was a big deal to me... And I thought that was okay, but it wasn't! So keep on walking because I'm happier now.

    P.S - Someone was to fix the lyrics!
