Walk Away Clean

Someone I trusted implicitly threw me under the bus.

WALK AWAY CLEAN

Boy, you didn’t lead me on

But you sure leaned on me

I take all the punishment

While you walk away clean

Don’t act so damn innocent

And I won’t be so mean

While you feign embarrassment

As you walk away clean

I’m sorry you’re uncomfortable

With my forthright spleen

I put my marbles on the table

You walk away clean


 

You get kittens

I get bitten

You get rainbows

I get low blows

I hope my glare

Burns you through

As you go there

And I come to

 

I never meant to lead you on

But I was caught between

The precipice that cut you off

While I walk away clean

I will not let you win this war

While you try to demean

Everything you said before

So I walk away clean

 

I’ll get kittens

You'll get bitten

I’ll get rainbows

You'll get low blows

I hope my glare

Burns you through

As you go there

And I come to

 

Now we’re at the last verse

And I cannot glean

How I got here from the first

But I walk away clean

I walk away clean

Watch me walk away clean

Clean as a whistle now

Clean as a whistle

Where is my whistle now

Where is my whistle
