"Walk Away" as written by and Leslie David/reny Howe....
A downtown cafe Saturday evenin' and the
Place is about to be closed I'm meeting my baby
Yeah and order my hundredth cup of coffee today
My hands are shakin'

At half past seven I'm sittin here waitin' for
My boy all alone for too long it's after eleven
Yeah I'm tired of waitin' and I'm gonna go home
Cause I don't need this

You never think twice before you break all the rules
You gotta be crazy if you think I'm a fool

I'll walk away and say good bye
If you don't want me anymore
I've got my pride
I'll walk away and say good bye
If I don't get the love we had before
Not satisfied

He finally gets here I'm waitin' for him to ask me
Why there's a frown on my face he orders a
Cold beer he has an excuse about his car
Breakin' down but I don't buy it
You're givin' me somethin' I don't need anymore
Just gimme the word and I'll be slammin' the door

I'll walk away and say good bye
If you don't want me anymore
I've got my pride
I'll walk away and say good bye
If I don't get the love we had before
Not satisfied

His best intentions are never the same as what
He does of the end of the day I'm feelin' the
Tension yeah don't gimme no reasons cause you
Don't comprehend what am I feelin'

You never think twice before you break all the rules
You gotta be crazy if you think I'm a fool
You're givin' me somethin' I don't need anymore
Just gimme the word and I'll be slammin' the door

I'll walk away and say good bye
If you don't want me anymore
I've got my pride
I'll walk away and say good bye
If I don't get the love we had before
Not satisfied

I'll walk away and say good bye
If you don't want me anymore
I've got my pride
I'll walk away and say good bye
If I don't get the love we had before
Not satisfied

So tell me now
Just say the word
It won't be long
I'll be long long gone...

    General CommentIt's about a girl laying down the law to her triflin' boyfriend, telling him to $h!t or get off the pot.

    I found this song after following a link from a page on Robin Sparkles from "How I Met Your Mother," this being used as an example of 90s Canadian pop. A lot of people diss this type of music, but I like it. It's fun, harmless. This one in particular is quite catchy.

    In spite of its being poppy, I can see that it's an Alanis Morissette song, a light version of what was to come. The conversational/narrative style ("I'm at a cafe wating for my boyfriend, drinking coffee. . . He shows up and gets a beer.") is so her.

    General CommentA boy's taking his girlfriend for granted and isn't treating her as well/ giving her as much attention as he did at the beginning of their relationship.... and she's not going to put up with it.
