When You're Walking Away

Lyrics: Jackie Greene
Music: Jackie Greene

A Jackie Greene song played with Phil Lesh and Friends in 2007

Well I ain't gonna ask you what you're doing here
I know you got your reasons but honey, they ain't ever clear
And maybe it's just better that you never stay
I love you more when you're walking away

I ain't gonna ask you what's on your mind
It's hard enough for my own head to unwind
The world is getting smaller, each and every day
And I love you more when you're walking away

When you're walking away
Baby, I get high like i never could
You don't stay, although sometimes I wish you would
Everything's clear when you're not here

Lonesome is a candle in the night
A one-room bedroom window crying-light
You take me for granted, but baby that's OK
I love you more when you're walking away

When you're walking away
Baby I get high like I never could
You don't stay, honey sometimes I wish you would
Everything's clear when you're not here

Well I ain't gonna ask you what you're doing here
Take what you can get and then disapear
Ah but that's alright mama, you can leave me any day
'Cause I love you more when you're walking away
