Love The Way You Walk Away

I've been feeling in the way, kind of underfoot on a Saturday
The sun it don't mean to hurt I guess,
But the bright light's harsh when you're trying to rest
I know you've been working some overtime,
In your granddad's kitchen trying to make a dime
The old joke stands cause it's true I guess
That when you find what you're looking for you want it less

Cause baby I'm on the make in my old sport coat and my head it aches
I'm drinking too much tonight and it ain't right
And a brand new coat of paint,
On this broke down palace couldn't compensate,
For the things I never really said to make you stay,
Cause I love it when you walk away.

I spent the night in an old sedan
It was parked by the river where the oak trees stand
Tryin' to find a station on that radio,
Searching hard for a song that I just don't know
Some kind of personal epiphany,
But all I heard was the stars as they spoke to me
An ancient tongue speaking loud and true
Telling me all the ways that I'm losing you

Cause baby I'm on the make in my old sport coat and my head it aches
I'm drinking too much tonight and it ain't right
And a brand new coat of paint,
On this broke down palace couldn't compensate,
For the things I never really said to make you stay,
Cause I love it when you walk away.

Hey hey
Hey hey hey
Yeah
Hey hey hey
Yeah

I've been feeling hard to get,
Like a dog hiding out underneath the step
Burning this bridge cause I need the light,
For to see my way through the coming night
I guess I thought you'd always just play the game,
Come a walking on back down the same old lane
But the grass grows high all around your door
It's a sign or symbol for the things in store

Cause baby I'm on the make in my old sport coat and my head it aches
I'm drinking too much tonight and it ain't right
And a brand new coat of paint,
On this broke down palace couldn't compensate,
For the things I never really said to make you stay,
Cause I love it when you walk away.

Hey hey
Hey hey hey
Yeah
Hey hey hey
Yeah
Hey hey hey
Yeah
Hey hey hey
Yeah
