Lyrics

I ran into Cathy in a health food store
I hadn’t seen Cathy for a year or more
And she was looking tired at half-past three
Wasn’t the Cathy it used to be
«Monday through to Wednesday, I handle cash
Thursday through to Sunday, I get smashed
I earned enough money to buy the stuff»
«Cathy,» I said, «I've heard enough»
Walk away from home
Walk away from home
Walk away, from home
«Remember those holidays by the beach
When our parents gave us sixty dollars each?
And we stood like pilgrims on the top of a cliff
The salt sea spray made my skin stiff
I haven’t seen the coast since I moved into town
Guess it’s the kind of life I’m living now
Sometimes I wish I could get away»
«Cathy,» I said, «Who's making you stay?»
Walk away from home
Walk away from home
Walk away, from home
«So, who’s this guy you’re living with now?
A little while back you turned him down»
«If I tell you, don’t think less of me
I’m living with him because it’s… rent-free»
Cathy’s eyes were pink like scars
«Sometimes I think I’m living too fast»
«Cathy,» I said, «I have no sympathy
Look up masochism in the dictionary»
Walk away from home
Walk away from home
Walk away, from home
Walk away
Walk away
Walk away from what you know
