Tom Waits - Walk Away Lyrics




Dot King was whittled from the bone of Cain
With a little drop of poison in the red red blood
She need a way to turn around the bend
She said I want to walk away and start over again

There are things I've done I can't erase
I want to look in the mirror see another face
I said, "never", but I'm doing it again
I wanna walk away, start over again

No more rain, no more roses
On my way, shake my thirst in a cool cool pond

There's a winner in every place
There's a heart that's beating in every page
The beginning of it starts at the end
When it's time to walk away and start over again

Weather's murder at a hundred and three
William Ray shot Corabell Lee
A yellow dog knows when he has sinned
You wanna walk away and start over again

No more rain, no more roses
On my way, shaking my thirst in a cool cool pond

Cooper told Maui the whole block's gone
They're dying for jewelry, money, and clothes
I always get out of the trouble I'm in
I want to walk away, start over again

I left my bible by the side of the road
Carve my initials in an old dead tree
I'm going away but I'm going to be back when
It's time to walk away and start over again

Ho ho yeah, hmm, yeah
Gotta walk away, gotta walk away, gotta walk away
Just wanna walk away yeah, wanna walk away and start over again
Wanna walk away, wanna walk away, wanna walk away

    The first line of the song has always intrigued me as to who Dot King was. Finally looked her up...http://malefactorsregister.com/wp/the-butterfly-murders/

  4. Christopher F

    He's embracing the totality of his madness, "No more rain, no more roses."

  8. etrrnal illusion

    I truly cannot like tom waits music. I massively enjoy his personality, interviews and appearances on screen though.

  9. Vi B

  27. soda chemust

    A funny song...

  28. coreycox2345

    I don't know what Tom Waits would think of this idea, but when I hear this, I see tap choreography. It seems made for it. Also, if that is how you feel, don't give it a second thought. I would prefer to split than be thought of as cod liver oil. An obligation? The right thing that you don't want. Does that sound like a formula for happiness to you? Don't you try to put that on me. In that case, I want to walk away and start over again too. I am still so much better off than we met. Thanks for the help. I had this covered, and was only trying to figure out precisely what you were saying as I always have been. I wish I had changed sooner.

  29. Trebors-Times

    On my way ......X

    Dot King was whittled from the bone of Cain
    With a little drop of poison in the red red blood
    She need a way to turn around the bend
    She said I want to walk away and start over again

    There are things I've done I can't erase
    I want to look in the mirror see another face
    I said, "never", but I'm doing it again
    I wanna walk away, start over again

    No more rain, no more roses
    On my way, shake my thirst in a cool cool pond

    There's a winner in every place
    There's a heart that's beating in every page
    The beginning of it starts at the end
    When it's time to walk away and start over again

    Weather's murder at a hundred and three
    William Ray shot Corabell Lee
    A yellow dog knows when he has sinned
    You wanna walk away and start over again

    No more rain, no more roses
    On my way, shaking my thirst in a cool cool pond

    Cooper told Maui the whole block's gone
    They're dying for jewelry, money, and clothes
    I always get out of the trouble I'm in
    I want to walk away, start over again

    I left my bible by the side of the road
    Carve my initials in an old dead tree
    I'm going away but I'm going to be back when
    It's time to walk away and start over again

    Ho ho yeah, hmm, yeah
    Gotta walk away, gotta walk away, gotta walk away
    Just wanna walk away yeah, wanna walk away and start over again
    Wanna walk away, wanna walk away, wanna walk away
