Feels So Wrong

Feels So Wrong (to walk away from you)
Written for "Mad About You" (Paul Reiser, Helen Hunt)
I wrote these lyrics for/to season 4: Episodes 22, 23 & 24
I watched the show regularly, knew the characters well, and while watching this episode where Paul was walking through the park, saddened, and thinking about the trouble his relationship was in, I felt it could have used a song/lyrics to better express Paul's emotions... and pull harder on the viewers heartstrings! ;-)

Feels So Wrong (to walk away from you)

©1996 Nick Robinson

 

Today is the coldest day of my life

As I walk alone down these streets without you

My heart only wants to feel alive once again

My mind only wants to try and understand

There's so much weight on my shoulders

These emotions feel so surreal

All I'd thought I knew to be sure

No longer seem so clear anymore

And it feels so wrong to walk away from you

Yeah, it feels so wrong to walk away from you

 

And as my legs carry me to another place

Somewhere that feels so far away from you

My arms flex in memory of your embrace

As I walk wide awake and dream of you.

And for all these years we've shared our lives

I'm surprised how fast it's passed my eyes.

Each step covers what seems like an eternity

As I'm reminded of how things used to be.

And it feels so wrong to walk away from you

Yeah, it feels so wrong to walk away from you

 

But I can't try any harder to understand

What's caused us to lose our trusted ground

I couldn't be any better than I'm already being

Is there something I'm doing that I'm not seeing

Talk to me - Tell me what I can do to clear the air

'Cause I don't want to keep walking

If there's still something left for me back there.

See, amidst all of this confusion

One truth still rings clear

Of how my life will suffer it's greatest loss

If I can't ever hold you near

And so it feels so wrong to walk away from you

Yeah, it feels so wrong to walk away from you

 

What's made me go down this road?

These faces are so distant, I feel so cold

My eyes are blurred by visions of us together

But the tears can't hide what they show.

Tell me something to make me stop

'Cause I don't want to go!

Help me bring these visions back to reality.

Help me get things back the way they used to be

I know you love me as much as I love you

And why it feels so wrong to walk away from you

Yeah, it feels so wrong to walk away from you

The End
