 A really easy, yet beautiful song. The timing is the most difficult

but it sounds really close...

 'h' means hammer-on.

Lyrics:

Intro

Verse:
  Oh no
  Here comes that sun again
  That means another day
  Without you my friend
  And it hurts me
  To look into the mirror at myself
  And it hurts even more
  To have to be with somebody else

Chorus:
  And it's so hard to do
  And so easy to say
  But sometimes
  Sometimes you just have to walk away
  Walk away

Verse:
  With so many people
  To love in my life
  Why do I worry
  About one
  But you put the happy
  In my ness
  You put the good times
  Into my fun

Chorus:

  And it's so hard to do
  And so easy to say
  But sometimes
  Sometimes you just have to walk away
  Walk away
  And head for the door

Bridge:
  We've tried the goodbye
  So many days
  We walk in the same direction
  So that we could never stray
  They say if you love somebody
  Than you have got to set them free
  But I would rather be locked to you
  Than live in this pain and misery

Verse:
  They say time will
  Make all this go away
  But it's time that has taken my tomorrows
  And turned them into yesterdays
  And once again that rising sun
  Is droppin' on down
  And once again you my friend
  Are nowhere to be found

Chorus:
  And it's so hard to do
  And so easy to say
  But sometimes
  Sometimes you just have to walk away
  Walk away
  And head for the door
  You just walk away
