Walk on By

Notes

I love when Rebecca sings this song.  It’s a pretty simple little break-up song with lyrics I know I’ve stolen from other places, but the way Rebecca sings it makes the song very fresh and very real to me.

There are quite a few versions of this song.  They’re all fairly similar, but it’s interesting to hear how little tweaks work their way into the mix.

Lyrics

Verse 1
Well I pray for rain
Just to hide these tears
And I pray that the pain
Will go away with the years

And I know that this hurt means nothing
To your wicked heart my dear
So just walk on by, my love
Just walk on by

Verse 2
When you walked away
You said it’s cause I couldn’t change
But ever since that day
My whole life’s been rearranged

But I guess I just can’t keep trying
To be more than what I am
So walk on by, oh baby
Just walk on by

Interlude

Walk on by, oh baby
Walk on by

Verse 3
So when you see my on the street
And I turn away
It’s not because I’m weak
But I learned the hard way

That a girl once bitten, baby
Is bound to be twice shy
So I’ll walk on by, oh baby
I’ll walk on by, my love
I’ll walk on by, bye, bye
I’ll walk on by…

When you walk on by
Won’t let you see me crying
When you walk on by
Cause my heart is dying
