Just Walk Away

Just Walk Away

I am sure that this was not my first song choice for this week. However, as I had a total mind blank after the holidays I decided to search out some new inspiration. I found our “Colour Of My Love” album from Celine Dion, which I have not listened to in many years. I felt impelled to listen to it last weekend, and the songs on that album came flooding back into my mind.

I distinctly remember it being a joy to discover her astonishing voice. I have chosen one of her songs which I think exhibits very well the drama she can inject into relatively simple lyrics. Celine squeezes every drop of emotion from her heart into these verses and I find myself getting caught up with the intensity.

This is “Just Walk Away” from Celine Dion.

I know I never loved this way before
And no one else has loved me more
With you I've laughed and cried
I have lived and died
What I wouldn't do just to be with you

I know I must forget you to go on
I can't hold back my tears too long
Though life won't be the same
I've got to take the blame
And find the strength I need to let you go

Just walk away
Just say goodbye
Don't turn around now
You may see me cry
I mustn't fall apart
Or show my broken heart
Or the love I feel for you

So walk away
Close the door
And let my life be as it was before
I'll never never know
Just how I let you go
There's nothing left to say
Just walk away

There'll never be a moment I'll regret
I've loved you since the day we met
For all the love you gave
And all the love we made
I know I've got to find the strength to say

Just walk away
Just say goodbye
Don't turn around now
You may see me cry
I mustn't fall apart
Or show my broken heart
Or the love I feel for you

So walk away
Close the door
And let my life be as it was before
I'll never never know
Just how I let you go
There's nothing left to say
Just walk away

Just walk away
Just say goodbye
Don't turn around now
You may see me cry
I mustn't fall apart
Or show my broken heart
Or the love I feel for you

So walk away
Close the door
And as you leave I know I love you more
I'll never never know
Just how I let you go
There's nothing left to say
Just walk away

  1. Nice choice, I love Celine. This is sad but meaningful song where the singer tells her lover to walk away even though they have been in a long relationship. She needs to rediscover who she was before she met him and she would like to go back in time. Many people lose themselves completely in long relationships.
