The Walk

By Mike Whiteley


I can’t stand nobody, and I hate who I’ve become

If tomorrow’s like today I may break down

I’m giving everything I’ve got to this race that we all run

But, I don’t feel like I’m gaining any ground

I’ve got questions but no answers, and no doubt I’m gonna fall

It’s harder every day to fake a smile

Maybe I should just start walking, and stop heading for the wall

And see what’s waiting after that first mile



I think I’ll walk

I’ll leave everything behind me, my troubles won’t know where to find me

I can leave behind this haze I’m in and step in to the clear

Yeah, I’ll walk

One step and then another, There’s lots of ground to cover

I may not know what’s up ahead, but I know what’s waiting here

So, I think I’ll walk


I think I’ll have myself a yard sale, and give Goodwill all the rest

Buy a map, pick a spot, then, hell, who knows

Everyone will think I’m crazy, they’ll prob’ly say I’m giving up

But I’ll go crazy man, if I don’t hit the road

I’ll walk


There’s no need to put my thumb out, ‘cause I don’t want a ride

In my new life there’s no hurry, I just take it all in stride


And I walk

I left everything behind me, trouble don’t know where to find me

I got out of that cloudy haze and stepped into the clear

Yeah, I walk

One step and then another, there’s so much ground to cover

And the answers might be up ahead, I can feel ‘em growing near

So, I walk

Yeah, I walk
