"Go Away" as written by and Mitchell Allan Scherr....
Once inside the door I check my face in the mirror,
As I look past this lonely minute
Was this the ride worth waiting for
I'm scared to death that now I've missed it
But she was not the only stone, skipped across this gravel road
Leading down the path of loneliness
So I'll fly from this hate, pray my soul the lord will take me
To a place through time and indifference

I want to know how do you feel
I want to know if this was real
Then tell me what would you say
If you can make this pain go away

She plans her future looking bright ahead
Leaves me in the past.
I can't stand to hang out with my codependent friends
My patience fading fast
But every sign and every song is telling me I don't belong,
But it's O.K. to feel scared
Cause one day soon I'll find myself and realize that no one else
Will make me feel stupid!

There's this old man down in Fell's Point,
Always hanging around
Telling me, "Son, the pendulum swings both ways
But for you, It'll always swing down!"

    General CommentThis is such a good song I can't believe no one has commented on it. I think it is about a breakup and the guy is thinking back about the girl and how she won't be the only one he'll love "she's not the only stone skipped...." He knows it's the right move he is just looking for reassurance

    General CommentI gotta agree with you that this is a really good song! But I think is has to do with people moving ahead with their lives... possibly moving away: "She plans her future looking bright ahead Leaves me in the past." and that the writer wants eveything to be the way it used to be. "But every sign and every song is telling me I don't belong" SR-71 ROCK!

    My InterpretationI find it hard to believe this song has so few comments. SR-71 has grown on me a lot lately, especially this song.

    I think the break up is right, but he projecting what he wants-- a way to make the pain go away. It sounds like he's gotten to a point where he thinks he's just going to be alone and has accepted it ("But for you, It'll always swing down"), and is trying to make himself feel good by thinking about some "magic" thing that could make the pain go away...maybe it will be the same thing that realizes that he shouldn't be afraid or feel stupid.
