Released as UK Single in 1990


V1:
Every time you turn around
You wear another face
Every time I look away
I find a hiding place

V2:
If you knew me like you knew him
You would know just how I feel
Slipping through someone's fingers
Falling under someone's wheels

[Chorus]:
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

[1st time: go to Verse 3. 2nd/3rd time: continue from here]

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

(2nd time: Repeat Verse 1 and go staight to Chorus)
(3rd time: go to Coda part way through)

V3:
Never seen you looking back through
Smiling eyes and tears
Never knew you holding on to
Memories and fears

V4:
Just release me I can't take it
Can't you see a change has come
Strangled by infatuation
Buried under someone's thumb

[Chorus] (follow instructions and go to coda)

[Coda (Instrumental)]
