Walk Away. ‘Dedication’

I was struck dumb, head over heels and dropped like a stone on Boxing Day 1990 or ’91 because the other party' unaddressed loose end, all in the space of a few short weeks.

Recorded and produced @ Airfield Studios, St Merryn, Cornwall by Jo Partridge for Silversound Records
Arranged by Mike Silver and Jo Partridge


Just walk away she said it isn’t hard to do
You forget about me I’ll forget about you
The things we said oh they just weren’t true
Don’t say you lied to see if I would lie to you

Walk away walk away….

When something feels so strong in your heart and mind
You let it magnify a million times
Everybody knows that love is blind
You only see what you hope to find

Walk away walk away….

Walk away turn your back
Get the first train and don’t come back
Walk away let me go
Walk away walk away walk away walk away

She spoke of mountains high behind her home
And told me how she walked and stood alone
Next to the sky and snow and stone
And dreamed of love to call her own

Walk away turn your back….
