DIFFERENT TRACKS
© 2013 Lyrics & Music by Bob Bentley

Verse One:
Think you know by now, that we should be moving on
Though we're still the best of friends, the romance has all gone
I've known you long enough to tell, that you're trying to pretend
But you don't want to be the one

Verse Two:
Every day I see that look, I feel it deep inside
We are trying very hard, not to hurt each other's pride
I really think that you deserve, a better life than this
But I don't want to be the one....

Chorus:
To, walk away babe, free as a bird
Time to make a brand new life out in the big wide world
Walk away babe, don't look back
We will still be best of friends, on our different tracks

Verse Three:
No point in putting on this show, when no one really gains
Don't want to be the one to leave, so we go on just the same
It's not that we don't get along, but we are not in love
Time that one of us was strong...

Chorus:
Walk away babe, free as a bird
Time to make a brand new life, out in the big wide world
Walk away babe, don't look back
We can still be best of friends, on our different tracks

Walk away.....

Instrumental break

Verse Four:
We've got to take a chance, on what becomes of us in time
But I wish you all the best, and I'm sure we'll be fine
Heaven knows that you deserve, much more than we have now
But I don't want to be the one...

Chorus:
To walk away babe, free as a bird
Time to make a brand new life, out in the big wide world
Walk away babe, don't look back
We can still be the best of friends, on our different track

Walk away babe, free as a bird
Time to make a brand new life, out in the big wide world
Walk away babe, please don't look back
We can still be the very best of friends, on our different tracks

Walk away.....

Short Song Description:
Although still friends, they are not in love. Time to move on.
Long Song Description:
Although still friends, they are not in love. Neither wants to be the one to suggest it's time to go their separate ways, their different tracks.
Story Behind the Song:
First recorded over 20 years ago, this is one of my favorite songs. It was suggested to me many moons ago that the original version was too fast and the emotions would come across better if slower. I have remixed the track and re-recorded the guitar parts to bring this song up to date.
