Don’t Walk Out

“Don’t Walk Out”

Staring at the bottles on the shelf,
I have to think of one more reason to go on.
The lights are turned down low, the music’s up too high,
And the only thing I see is you and her.

I see you running back to a life of pain,
to something that only you could see.
I’ve tried so hard to turn your head,
but I got one night, and now I see you’re gone.

Chorus:
Open your eyes and see,
I’m still standing with you,
She walked out once, but I’m still here,
Don’t you walk out too.

Forever you’re gone, together with her,
I stand and take a breath.
You smile at her, your eyes shining bright,
And she turns and walks away.

Chorus:
Open your eyes and see,
I’m still standing by you,
She walked out once, now I’m still here,
Don’t you walk out too.

Jack’s lookin’ good, when I see you out on the floor,
holding her close to your heart.
This bottle of Vodka, I grip in my hand,
when I think of the love I lost long ago.

I remember a face filled with happiness and love,
But this Tequila will set me straight.
He looked into my eyes like you look into hers,
But at last he left me behind.

Chorus:
Open your eyes and see,
I’m standing here waiting for you.
He walked out, and I’m still here…
Don’t you walk out too.

I see you bend down and kiss her good-night,
and one tear slowly forms in my eye.
Your eyes met mine, but you didn’t blink,
And you headed straight for the door.

Chorus:
Please open your eyes and see,
I’m still standing with you.
Someday you’ll open your eyes and you’ll see,
I will never walk out on you.
