Won't Walk Away
Nelson Lyrics


Though I try, I can't decide
Won't walk away, walk away from you
Whoa, from you

The tears pour down in the nights spent awake
Salvation in sleep always seems to escape
I look down at your picture in pieces thrown across my room
The future was hidden in the cards we were dealt
How could you cheat on the love that I felt?
I sink my head in my pillow, confused about what I'll do about you

Though I try, I can't decide
Won't walk away, walk away from you
Whoa, from you
Can't you see what you mean to me
Won't walk away, walk away from you
Whoa, from you

I can't see an end to the pain that I'm in
The alibis you handed me seemed mighty thin
Clear the lump from my throat, read your letter just one more time
I haven't been asleep for a week 'cause it seems
That I can't close my eyes, you're there in my dreams
I throw your number in the trash, confused about what I'll do about you

Addicted to your love like a martyr is to pain
Like a sinner craves a vice and a drug need a vein
Am I giving you the blade and begging you to run me through?
Well, I'm the type of man who believes in the fight
I know what is wrong and I'd die for what's right
I'll make you understand if it's the last thing I do
Whoa, that I love you

No, I just can't walk away, walk away from you
Though I try, I just can't walk away, walk away from you
No, I just can't walk away, (I just can't walk away)
Walk away from you
Though I try, (yeah) I just can't walk away
I can't eat, I can't sleep, I can't live without you by my side now, babe

NÃO VOU ME AFASTAR

Embora eu tente, não consigo decidir
Ir embora, me afastar de você
Whoa, de você

As lágrimas derramaram nas noites passadas e eu acordado
Na salvação do sono sempre pareço escapar
Eu olho para sua foto em pedaços jogado em meu quarto
O futuro estava escondido nas cartas
Como você pode se enganar sobre o amor que eu senti?
Eu afundo minha cabeça no travesseiro, confuso sobre o que eu vou fazer com você

Embora eu tente, não consigo decidir
Não vai embora, me afastar de você
Whoa, de você
Você não pode ver o que você significa para mim
Não vai embora, me afastar de você
Whoa, de você

Eu não consigo ver o fim da dor
Os álibis que você me entregou pareciam poderosos
Li a sua carta só mais uma vez
Eu não estive dormindo por uma semana porque parece
Que eu não posso fechar meus olhos, você está lá em meus sonhos
Eu jogo o seu número no lixo, confuso sobre o que eu vou fazer com você

Embora eu tente, não consigo decidir
Não vai embora, me afastar de você
Whoa, de você
Você não pode ver o que você significa para mim
Não vai embora, me afastar de você
Whoa, de você

Viciado em seu amor como um mártir é a dor
Como um pecador anseia por um vício e uma droga precisa de uma veia
Estou dando-lhe a lâmina e lhe implorando que me atravesse?
Bem, eu sou o tipo de homem que acredita na luta
Eu sei o que está errado e eu morreria pelo que é certo
Eu vou fazer você entender nem que seja a última coisa que eu faça
Whoa, que eu te amo

Embora eu tente, não consigo decidir
Não vai embora, me afastar de você
Whoa, de você
Você não pode ver o que você significa para mim
Não vai embora, me afastar de você
Whoa, de você

Não, eu só não posso ir embora, me afastar de você
Embora eu tente, eu não posso ir embora, me afastar de você
Não, eu só não posso ir embora (eu não posso ir embora)
Me afastar de você
Embora eu tente, (yeah) eu não posso ir embora
Eu não consigo comer, não consigo dormir
Não posso viver sem você do meu lado agora, baby

These guys (and many others) were really hit with some bad timing when Grunge came along and destroyed their style of pop. Everything became so serious.

Victor R.

So serious? More like, so shitty! Bad singing, bad playing.

@bucky468 I love "ive run so far" beautiful song

@Sydney Prescott I guess you never heard of Collective Soul, a 90's melodic rock band from Atlanta, whose signature song "Shine" is one of the biggest feel-good hits of the 1990's? That ain't grunge. CS hated grunge, and they were trying to continue the AOR/melodic rock sound that was popular throughout the 80's. Not only that, "Shine" has one of the most epic guitar solos you'd ever hear during an era when grunge was rock's top subgenre. But glam era fans hate CS because they were unfairly lumped in with all the grunge & alt bands. Look at the influences of this band, first. Yes, they were influenced by 80's post-punk bands like R.E.M., U2, INXS, the Police & the Replacements, but they were also influenced by the likes of the Beatles, Zeppelin, the Who, David Bowie, Cheap Trick, Journey, Foreigner, Heart, Boston, Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, Survivor, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Deep Purple, Sweet & ZZ Top. CS pretty much recycled arena rock's classic sound. 90's wasn't just grunge.

Sydney Prescott

I hated it, everything got so depressing

bucky468

Grunge?! It's always grunge! Whatever! Come on! What about rap? What about country? What about R&B? What about techno pop? What about other subgenres of pop? Those genres were big in 1995, also. It wasn't just grunge that killed AOR/melodic rock. Besides, Nelson barely got any airplay on album rock radio even during their heyday in 1990-91. "Love & Affection" peaked Top 20, at the very best, on the album rock charts. "After The Rain" stalled at #39 on that very same chart. "More Than Ever" failed to crack the album rock chart's Top 40. The "blame grunge" excuse is really getting old. I bet even Matthew & Gunnar are growing weary of hearing that tiresome excuse, too.

matthew was always my fave!!!

breerose927

have always been in love with these guys and always will, awesome talent

Really good song. Too bad radio never embraced them after the After the Rain cd. You can hear their dad's influences all over this song. Sounds like something he would have done as a stripped down 1960's version with James Burton running a few solos.

Breanne Carlson

I saw this video for the very first time on here yesterday and got it off of iTunes later :) Great song! And though I know it's him singing in "After The Rain" (I have that CD, as well, and of course, I remember their famous long blonde hair) , I must say, I never realized what a gorgeous voice Matthew has :)
