"Walk Away" as written by and Ramin Djawadi....
Find me
I'm falling
And fooling myself that it's flight
Imperfect
I plummet
And ponder
Pushed away on principle

Walk away and I stare
Would you stand me up again?
Wonder if I've said too much
And we'll never speak again

Forfeit
My future
For feelings of few far betweens
Mindless
Of merciful
Measures
Making ends preempt the means

And I searched your eyes for an answer
And shuddered at what I found there
As my skin shrunk away from conclusion
That you lack the strength to care

Walk away and I stare
Would you stand me up again?
Wonder if I've said too much
And we'll never speak again

This is the way it has to be
That you would turn your back on me
And you and I should walk away

Walk away and I stare
Would you stand me up again?
Wonder if I've said too much
And we'll never speak again

    General CommentSounds like he got in a fight with his girl and he wonders if it caused the relationship to be over completely. He doesn't know if he's "said too much" to her-- causing her to hate him forever...

    that's what I see in it neway.

    General CommentActually I think it has to do with a relationship, but i just wanted to say that it is the best song I ever heard. I got this demo in the mail for this song and it is awsome, i've never heard of them be4 but you can bet I will be preaching about them, everyone should hear this song

    General CommentThe feeling is mutal, this song kicks ass.
    But what does this song mean?
    I've been interpretting it for some time now that it was about a girl that was so low that he almost had pity for her. She had hurt him so bad in the past, and he despises her now.
    The first verse could be how he considered making amends, or perhaps sinking down to her level of lowliness. He got hurt when he tried to make amends
    --> "I searched your eyes for an answer
    And shuddered at what I found there
    As my skin shrunk away from conclusion
    That you lack the strength to care"
    She was so vile that it hurt him even more.
    So, he is left wondering if he should just stop trying to make the situation better, and he wonders if they'll ever speak again.

    That's probably a very abstract perversion of the song... Sorry if you completely disagree.

    General CommentWhat it means to me is that he cares about his girl. He tells her how he feels and gets a bad reaction from her. The reaction being that she doesn't love him. And he realizes this. But even though he is hurting he knows that walking away is the best thing for him to do since he knows down deep that she is going to walk away from him. So to save face, he decides to walk away as well.
