How Can You Walk Away?

This song is by LeJuene Thompson and appears on the Compilation Soul Vibe (2002).

Sittin' in my room one night, takin' a long look at my life

Things were getting real, real bad
At least that's what the enemy said
So, I started to dance to his beat
The negative is all he wanted me to see
I contemplated singing his song, why not
He said it ain't nothing wrong

My relationship with God got so weak
I didn't wanna talk to Him nor His face seek
Oh, I had made up my mind
Convinced it was okay to cross the line
Just when I was about to make the wrong choice
Heard the Savior speak and there was pain in His voice
He said to me

Every time I call you
You won't answer
When I try to touch you
You just turn away
Why won't you talk to Me?
I know you hear Me
How can you walk away?
How can you just turn yo' back and leave?
After everything I've brought you thru
How could you do this to Me?

I was on the brink of fatal disaster
Almost turned my back on the Master
See y'all, the enemy ain't no joke
He'll make you think when things get hard that we can't cope
When you're called and chosen, think it not strange
'Cause your trial's great
Know that God is greater and on Him we must wait

Lord, I'm sorry and I pray for another chance
Gotta show the world that for You, I'm gon' stand
Please help me, Lord, to make the right choice
Don't wanna hurt You again or hear that pain in Your voice

He said
Every time I call you
You won't answer
When I try to touch you
You just turn away
Why won't you talk to Me?
I know you hear Me
How can you walk away?
How can you just turn yo' back and leave?
After everything I've brought you thru
How could you do this to Me?

Every time I call you
You won't answer
When I try to touch you
You just turn away
Why won't you talk to Me?
I know you hear Me
How can you walk away?
How can you just turn yo' back and leave?
After everything I've brought you thru
How could you do this to Me?

How can you walk away?
How can you walk away?
How can you walk away?
