Walk

  • A million miles away
    Your signal in the distance
    To whom it may concern
    I think I lost my way
    Getting good at starting over
    Every time that I return

    Learning to walk again
    I believe I've waited long enough
    Where do I begin?
    Learning to talk again
    Can't you see I've waited long enough?
    Where do I begin?

    Do you remember the days?
    We built these paper mountains
    Then sat and watched them burn
    I think I found my place
    Can't you feel it growing stronger
    Little conquerors

    Learning to walk again
    I believe I've waited long enough
    Where do I begin?
    Learning to talk again
    I believe I've waited long enough
    Where do I begin?

    Now,
    For the very first time
    Don't you pay no mind
    Set me free, again
    To keep alive, a moment at a time
    That's still inside, a whisper to a riot
    The sacrifice, the knowing to survive
    The first decline, another state of mind
    I'm on my knees, I'm praying for a sign
    Forever, whenever, I never wanna die

    I never wanna die
    I never wanna die
    I'm on my knees, I never wanna die
    I'm dancing on my grave
    I'm running through the fire
    Forever, whenever
    I never wanna die
    I never wanna leave
    I'll never say goodbye
    Forever, whenever
    Forever, whenever

    Learning to walk again
    I believe I've waited long enough
    Where do I begin?
    Learning to talk again
    Can't you see I've waited long enough?
    Where do I begin?

    Learning to walk again
    I believe I've waited long enough
    Learning to talk again
    Can't you see I've waited long enough? Writer/s: DAVID ERIC GROHL, TAYLOR HAWKINS, CHRISTOPHER A. SHIFLETT, NATE MENDEL, PAT SMEAR

  • Thomas from CaliforniaLooks like Michael Douglas in falling down
  • Megan from Stevenson, AlLooooove this song! It's just a great song and album to listen to. Hope they keep it up because these guys are awesome!!!
  • Rob from Moose Jaw, SkThe video for this song is actually a tribute (as in, paying homage to), the 1994 film "Falling Down" starring Michael Douglas. A great concept for the music video!
  • Patrick from Indianapolis, InThis rings really similar to Feel The Silence by Goo Goo Dolls.
  • Mathijs from Houten, NetherlandsA very good and hopeful song. Davy Grohlton & Band are actually very strong at writing those kind of tunes, with Times Like These as the greatest example.
