Easier To Walk Away lyrics

Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Released as a uk single in 1990

Every time you turn around
You wear another face
Every time I look away
I find a hiding place

If you knew me like you knew him
You would know just how I feel
Slipping through someones fingers
Falling under someones wheels

Its easier to walk away
Better off to face the facts
When love holds you up for ransom
Walk away and dont look back

Never seen you looking back through
Smiling eyes and tears
Never knew you holding on to
Memories and fears

Just release me I cant take it
Cant you see a change has come
Strangled by infatuation
Buried under someones thumb

Its easier to walk away
Cover and fade to black
When love scars and leaves you branded
Walk away and dont look back

Every time you turn around
You wear another face
Every time I look away
I find a hiding place
