As You Walked Away - The Best Of Maxi Priest 1997

written by : M.Elliott/Shaggy -ft.Shaggy


Yesterday I thought I was the luckiest around
Little did I know that you were gonna take me down
'Cause a thousand tears won't wash away the pain
'Cause the more I think of you just leaves me hanging' round again
Got to find a way to keep a hold onto my pride. I wanna hold you girl-Shaggy
'Cause I know that even when you left you took my side
And the love you feel for me will always be. You'll always be by my side-Shaggy
But you had to go, get out on your own
Take a look at the world you don't see. Watch this-Shaggy

No you never skipped a beat when you walked out on me
Like a butterfly I see, you're free. Dying to see your face girl-Shaggy
And a tear rolled down your cheek as you waved goodbye to me
But you kept on walking never skipped a beat. Japanese Princess-Shaggy

Sometime I'll get used to spending my nights here on my own
Then I'll have to learn to greet the morning all alone
Yesterdays we shared are like a dream. What a vision-Shaggy
At night I reach out for you baby and wonder what might have been
I tell myself we'll try again another time and place
Everywhere I look I always see your face yea. Yes, Maxi tell her-Shaggy
We know this was never meant to be. How could it-Shaggy
So you had to go, just get out on your own Girl, without me. Watch this-Shaggy

You never skipped a beat when you walked out on me
Like a butterfly I see, you're free then a tear rolls down your cheek
And I knew it had to be
When you waved goodbye and walked away from me

-Shaggy-
I reminisce on your love and it's bringing me tears Oh my heart skip a beat
I wondered if she really cared I miss the stroking of your fingers through my facial hair
Just the thought of you leaving really runs me scared
I'm expressing my feeling's Please don't think that I am weird
You listen, it over man
I love ya bad, girl I'm sad
And I'm missing all I had
I know you left me an' gone
And it's driving me mad

Oh you never skipped a beat when you walked out on me
Like a butterfly I see, you're free. Tell 'em again-Shaggy
Then a tear rolls down your cheek
And you waved goodbye to me. Got me in tears-Shaggy
But you kept on walking never skipped a beat. Yes rude boy-Shaggy
And you never skipped a beat when you walked out on me
Like a butterfly I see, you're free then a tear rolls down your cheek
When you waved goodbye and walked away from me (fade.......)
