"Don't Walk Away Eileen" as written by and Sam Lewis Roberts....
Don't walk away, Eileen
I've been living for you since the age of seventeen
Don't walk away, Eileen
You've been telling lies and now it's time to come clean

Hey, you come around and I
Hey, you come around and I
Hey, you come around and I can't keep time
Hey, you turn around and I
Hey, you turn around and I
Hey, you turn around and I'm left behind

Eileen says I'm a boy, not a man
Crying on the corner with my head in my hands
I called her name and she ran
Slipping through my fingers like a fist full of sand

Hey, you come around and I
Hey, you come around and I
Hey, you come around and I lose my head
Hey, you turn around and I
Hey, you turn around and I
Hey, you turn around and I'm left for dead

And she reads my mind when I'm sleeping
And she always arrives when I'm leaving
Yeah, she's blocking out the sun it seems
You're a pacifist with a gun, Eileen

Hey, you come around and I
Hey, you come around and I
Hey, you come around and I can't keep time
Hey, you turn around and I
Hey, you turn around and I
Hey, you turn around and I'm left behind

Hey, you come around and I
Hey, you come around and I
Hey, you come around and I lose my head
Hey, you turn around and I
Hey, you turn around and I
Hey, you turn around and I'm left for dead

Don't walk away, Eileen
Don't walk away, Eileen
Don't walk away, Eileen
Don't walk away, Eileen
Don't walk away, Eileen
Don't walk away, Eileen
Don't walk away, Eileen

    General CommentOh my god, this song is almost like a situation I'm going through...

    Haven't heard the song, but heard Brother Down, so I'm just exploring...

    (goes to d/l his song)

    Question, is there a CD with all his songs yet? Or is there not enough yet? He rocks with his rythms and his lyrics.
