Look Away

Album: Chicago 19 (1988)
  • When you called me up this mornin'
    Told me 'bout the new love you found
    I said, "I'm happy for you, I'm really happy for you"

    Found someone else
    I guess I won't be comin' 'round
    I guess it's over, baby
    It's really over baby, whoa

    And from what you said
    I know you've gotten over me
    It'll never be the way it used to be
    So if it's gotta be this way
    Don't worry baby, I can take the news, okay

    But if you see me walkin' by
    And the tears are in my eyes
    Look away, baby, look away

    If we meet on the streets someday
    And I don't know what to say
    Look away, baby, look away
    Don't look at me
    I don't want you to see me this way

    When we both agreed as lovers
    We were better off as friends
    That's how it had to be
    Yeah, that's how it had to be

    I tell you I'm fine
    But sometimes I just pretend
    Wish you were holdin' me
    Wish you were still holding me, whoa

    I just never thought
    That I would be replaced so soon
    I wasn't prepared to hear those words from you
    I know I wanted to be free
    Yeah, baby, this is how we wanted it to be

    But if you see me walkin' by
    And the tears are in my eyes
    Look away, baby, look away

    And if we meet on the streets someday
    And I don't know what to say
    Look away, baby, look away
    Don't look at me
    I don't want you to see me this way

    If you see me walkin' by
    And the tears are in my eyes
    Look away, baby, look away

    And if we meet on the streets someday
    And I don't know what to say
    Look away, baby, look away
    Don't look at me
    I don't want you to see me this way

    If you see me walkin' by
    And the tears are in my eyes
    Look away, baby, look away
    Don't look at me
    I don't want you to see me this way

    When you called me up this mornin'
    Told me 'bout the new love you found
    I said, "I'm happy for you, I'm really happy for you" Writer/s: Diane Warren
