Cory Wells - Walk Away Lyrics

I'm at a war with myself
Stuck between loving you and leaving you like you always do
You know it's true
The cap twists off again
Here we go again
Another night alone
Waiting by the phone
Please come home
Come home
Follow through

Walk away
Swear to God, I'll find a way to hate you
Your mistakes cast you away with all the love I gave you
Save your breath
'Cause there's nothing you can say to me
So walk away
Hope to God, you don't find a way to break me
Someone save me

Are you bored with yourself?
And I promise you I'll be leaving you and your pride will too
You know I'm through
The cap twists off again
Here we go again
Another night alone
Waiting by the phone
Don't come home
Come home
Follow through

Walk away
Swear to God, I'll find a way to hate you
Your mistakes cast you away with all the love I gave you
Save your breath
'Cause there's nothing you can say to me
So walk away
Hope to God you don't find a way to break me
(I just want to forget you)
Someone save me

When you chose to abandon home
And tore apart a family that loved you
We made a promise that I'd let you go
In due time maybe I can forgive you
I just want to forget you

Walk away
Swear to God, I'll find a way to hate you
Your mistakes cast you away with all the love I gave you
Save your breath
'Cause there's nothing you can say to me
So walk away
Hope to God, you don't find a way to break me
(I just want to forget you)
Someone save me
(I just want to forget you)
Someone save me

Cory Wells Walk Away Comments
  1. Jared King

    everything hurts and i feel dead. thank you for writing something i can relate to cory. appreciate you.

    Dave Foskett

    Hang in there Jared, if you're going through a breakup take a step back and take a breath. My wife and I split up last year and it took me a long time to gather myself again. My two kids are trapped in the middle of everything, but I know I have them forever. Also reaching out to friends and loved ones is a great relief. I dont know you but I know you'll pull through whatever you're going through👍

  56. C Trusz

    Shoes on the coach, shirts in the shower WHAT IS THIS MADNESS

    Hannah Lee Ewing


    C Trusz

    Hannah Ewing ❤️

  57. Derek Pokphan

    " your breAAATTTTTHH..." that transition between singing/screaming, so emotional

    Hannah Lee Ewing

    That's what I looooove about this song!!

    Amber Nicole

    Goosebumps every. damn. time.

  58. blue flowers

    I've never been in a romantic relationship, and probably never will, but this song fits in my life. (Not the mv though.) You can insert a long sad story about childhood problems, but this song fits for missing my brother. I think it's beautiful when the emotions a song portrays aren't just applyable to losing a significant other, but for other people leaving.

  59. wolf days

    She just walked away after 2yrs of facing the world alone together. Now I'm picking up the pieces and allowing me to hate her just so I can move on

    Front Porch Step 2.0

    Tessa Campbell

    Benny rodriguez minus the underage touching

  61. plaguedyouth

    Name model?


    That's a horse.

  63. Leny

    Bono from U2... :)

  64. horizoniki

    Well, at least she was only playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with that guy.

  65. Long Hual Audits

    Powerful Powerful it’s painful and hateful but hits a certain part of my brain that relapses to a time when I just felt everything he put in here. It’s our generations ballad I am lovin’ it

  66. Jo Paint

    can someone tell me what guitar he is playing? awesome song btw

    Arief Bozeman

    Its an acoustic guitar😜

  67. ChezthePanda

    Just saw him yesterday opening for Ryan Key, he did a pretty amazing job and I was blown away with how he can combine screams with acoustics well.

  68. Tim Kemble

    That girl is sooooo hott

  69. Hannah Lee Ewing

    New favorite song!! I literally listen to it like 5x a day ❤❤❤ anyone have recommendations for similar sounding songs??

    Zach Wittneben

    There's a song called don't you by landon tewers with a similar vibe


    Trophy eye's John Floreani has some solo stuff similar to this. That acoustic emotional, dirty vocals sound.


    Front step porch - run away

    Hannah Lee Ewing

    @HaroldTheHoboYo I'm a huge FPS fan ❤

  74. CJ Johnson

    you and landon tewers need to team up on a song ASAP

    Priscilla Hamlet

    OMG what a frickin awesome idea, I can't believe I never thought of that! That would be amazingggg

  75. Melanie/Shiloh Everlight

    My heart completely burst when she picked up her A.A coin

  76. Alden Fox

    I am intrigued. Did the girl get sober and leave? Or is the AA chip a representation that she took away Corey’s sobriety when she left him?

    Hannah Lee Ewing

    Oof the latter of the two 😭😢💔


    Why would he give alcohol to a horse, she clearly needs hay.

  77. Scher fy

    You're so fucking underrated. This song is amazing !
    Continue with that!

  78. Steve Fury


  79. TheDoombringers

    I was about to write something like that to my ex fiancée, it resonates with me. Here we go again, another night alone waiting by the phone...


    TheDoombringers hope you’re doing okay!

  80. Star Sines

    Man .... the jeans is way too torn. Maybe wear shorts instead.

  89. caddisking

    Dashboard 2.0.


    Not bad 👌

  90. W3ssy W3s

    It's like the music I listened to in high school grew up with me.

  91. Ariel Alvarez

    This dude has a great voice, but damn the lyrical content is always so possessive and weird.

    Cory Wells

    You mean grammatically possessive? They are about very specific people and I'm basically just speaking to them through a song and not just making metaphors and general statements.

    Ariel Alvarez

    @Cory Wells it's your music and you're clearly doing something right... but sometimes some of the songs come off as toxic. I can't pretend to know anything about your life, and it's clear the songs come from a deep place... but I guess it's all just my "outsider" prospective.

    In the end, I'm a nobody. Keep doing what makes you happy because it's good regardless. You do have loads of talent.

    Cory Wells

    @Ariel Alvarez in a toxic relationship it tends to be that way. And not all music is gonna be happy go lucky and have some sort of message embedded into it. Sometimes it's just "this is how I felt when you lived with me and didn't come home until 4am every night." But I appreciate the feedback. Thanks for listening

  92. absol_89

    Damn good chorus

  93. Adrien Smith

    Please share this he deserve to be more bigger than he is.

  94. Keegan Staff

    Such a great tone in your voice. Very addictive

  95. I Gede Artana

    I love your song cory

  96. eric scott

    this is the saddest song about breaking up with the most beautiful woman in a music video i've ever seen that was completely unrelatable and what the fuck musician idiot sir d;ude, alive

  97. Sean Durbin

    on it's way to 1 million views... keep singing with passion my friend.
