46 Walk on

(Bradford, Gillan)
From the Deep Purple album Bananas

Michael Bradford wrote this song, my contribution was very small. I changed a few words to personalise the character, but really I felt good with the song from the moment I heard it. He was generous enough to put my name on the credits. Thank you Michael.

Walk on

(Bradford, Gillan)

If you don't like what you see
If you can do better than me
Walk on

If the road before you winds
Obscuring all the signs
Walk on

You mean more to me
Than just a pretty face
I won't hold you down
You need a little space

If you don't like what you see
If you can do better than me
You better walk on

You know I don't like to fight
No matter who's wrong or right
Walk on

I don't mean to bring you down
If you prefer the other side of town
Walk on

You've been troubled
Sleeping through the night
Deal with it in the daytime
Then you can turn off the light

If you don't like what you see
If you can do better than me
Walk on

Girl I tried
You know I tried
While I cried, you lied

Well the heart inside me burns
And the world around me turns
Walk on

It won't be right away
We'll meet again someday
Walk on

When the shine wears off
And he's on to something new
Try not to think about
How good I was to you

If you don't like what you see
If you can do better than me
Walk on
