Elton John - Easier To Walk Away Lyrics




Every time you turn around, you wear another face
Every time I look away, I find a hiding place
If you knew me like you knew him, you would know just how I feel
Slipping through somebody's fingers, falling under someone's wheels

It's easier to walk away, better off to face the facts
When love holds you up for ransom, walk away and don't look back

Never seen you looking back through smiling eyes and tears
Never knew you holding on to memories and fears
Just release me I can't take it, can't you see a change has come
Strangled by infatuation, buried under someone's thumb

It's easier to walk away, better off to face the facts
When love holds you up for ransom, walk away and don't look back
It's easier to walk away cover and fade to black
When love scars and leaves you branded, walk away and don't look back

Every time you turn around, you wear another face
Every time I look away find a hiding place

It's easier to walk away, better off to face the facts
When love holds you up for ransom, walk away and don't look back, yeah
It's easier to walk away, better off to face the facts
When love holds you up for ransom, walk away and don't look back

  4. IndyCar Serious Productions

    I was living in Seattle, and going through a horrible breakup when I first heard this song back in 1991. Wow does this bring back memories. She went back to California, I stayed in Seattle. Then one day woke up, packed a few things in my car, and drove back. Story continued...

  11. Irma Crespo

    Every time you turn around
    You wear another face
    Every time I look away
    I find a hiding place

    If you knew me like you knew him
    You would know just how I feel
    Slipping through somebody's fingers
    Falling under someone's wheels

    It's easier to walk away
    Better off to face the facts
    When love holds you up for ransom
    Walk away and don't look back

    Never seen you looking back through
    Smiling eyes and tears
    Never knew you holding on to
    Memories and fears

    Just release me I can't take it
    Can't you see a change has come
    Strangled by infatuation
    Buried under someone's thumb

    It's easier to walk away
    Better off to face the facts
    When love holds you up for ransom
    Walk away and don't look back

    It's easier to walk away
    Cover and fade to black
    When love scars and leaves you branded
    Walk away and don't look back

    Every time you turn around
    You wear another face
    Every time I look away
    I find a hiding place

    It's easier to walk away
    Better off to face the facts
    When love holds you up for ransom
    Walk away and don't look back

    It's easier to walk away
    Cover and fade to black
    When love scars and leaves you branded
    Walk away and don't look back

  25. Jimmy Rogers

    @MrsDelle That´s the Music Video from "That´s Why They Call It The Blues".

  26. FinalFrontier

    The short clip where Elton sits at the piano, wearing what looks like a golde 50'ies jacket, and with some kinda funny, fluffy haircut... Does anyone who if there's a longer version of that? Does it belong to some video or something? Just curious, 'cause he looks really cute... :)

    Adam Sowter

    It's from the video for 'I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues' :)

  27. FinalFrontier

    This single is simply amazing!!! And, unbelieveable as it is, its B-side is even better! :D Love his voice right around here... <3

  28. 1forlooker

    When love holds you up for ransom, walk away and don't look back (but that shit hurts). God; how does Bernie come up with such concepts. I suppose by reading and being a "weatherman of the words.:
