"I Looked Away" as written by and Eric Patrick/whitlock Clapton....
She took my hand
And tried to make me understand
That she would always be there,
But I looked away
And she ran away from me today;
I'm such a lonely man.
It came as no surprise to me
That she'd leave me in misery.
It seemed like only yesterday
She made a vow that she'd never walk away.
First Verse
And if it seemed a sin
To love another man's woman, baby,
I guess I'll keep on sinning
Loving her, Lord, till my very last day.
But I looked away
And she ran away from me today;
I'm such a lonely man.

    My OpinionOf all the songs on Layla, between this one (and the un-released Mean Old World) are the two best songs. I Looked Away is the most underated song on the album save the last song "Thorn Tree in the Garden"
