The Hardest Thing is Not Being Able to Walk Away (song lyrics I wrote)

January 9, 2011 at 12:16 AM 5 comments

Why does it have to hurt like this where I’m at?
Why does the middle have to hurt so bad?
I don’t want to hate you,
I know better than to scream,
But to hold you tightly in my arms,
Is only just a dream,

Because I am wounded and I am laying here,
I am overtaken by my biggest fear,
The choice to love or hate,
Why can’t I just walk away?

Why do you have to smile at me like that?
Why don’t you say you love me with the way you act?
I know that you don’t hate me,
You know better than to do these things,
But for you to hold me in your arms,
Is just another dream

Because I am wounded and I am laying here,
I am overtaken by my biggest fear,
The choice to love or hate,
Why can’t I just walk away?

I can’t run away from this,
But that would be my biggest wish,
Because hating you is not my heart,
But loving you is too hard,

I’m stuck here in the middle ground,
Nothing lost and nothing found,
I want to go beyond this pain,
But I can’t see through the rain,

Because I am wounded and I am laying here,
I am overtaken by my biggest fear,
The choice to love or hate,
Why can’t I just walk away?

I need to walk away, I need to hold you close,
I need to scream and yell at you, I can’t let you go,

Why can’t I just walk away?

(I felt like writing a song, and this is the unedited product of picking up my phone and typing the first things that pop into my head within 10 minutes. All I have is lyrics though, a melody and instruments will have to come later.)

I’m Tweeting (Yikes!)

  • So, I started going by my middle name in college because I've always liked it better. Now I'm Renée, and can be tweeted at "teafaellana." 3 years ago
  • I keep reading fanfics to tide me over until #OUaT is back. I can't wait to see more character development of Regina! #EvilRegals 4 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 4 years ago

Smile about what you are thankful for, and never forget you are a dreamer.


I am a girl on a mission, and the mission I am on is to be myself. I am an undiscovered treasure, and here I am giving you a key that will allow you a little further into the labyrinth of who I am.
