“Walk Away” Original Modern Rock Song by Danny Hauger Free Song Download 11 of 52 for 2017

"Walk Away" was not the song I was intending to write, but sometimes creativity unravels itself in unpredictable ways. I tried to control it into a slower, ballad type song, but after a few new sessions emerged, Id ecided to follow the chord progression and see where it would lead me. The result was a modern rock, even alternative sounding song resembling a bit of the band Bush, or contemporary, especially the way the harmony came in a lower octave, which was a first for me in my recordings I think. I enjoyed the bit of a rough edge that came out, and it developed nicely without a need for layering of lots of tracks. I let it remain simple, and I am happy with the result. This is free song 11 (really 15 or 16) of the 52 week challenge for 2017. Please help support my music! Thanks for listening.


“Walk Away” Words and Music by Danny Hauger c. 2017


There’s so much I want to say,

I worry about you.

So much I want to hear, be quiet.


There’s so much I want to do,

You worry about me,

I’ll find my direction through, be quiet.


I Walk away,

This town’s too small for me,

I’ll walk away. Yeah.

I’ll walk away,

This town’s got no more for me,

I’ll drive away. Yeah.


I want to find my way,

In this reckless abandon.

The smile on my face, is fading.

The path I have to make,

And follow my own footsteps.

There’s no one else to fake,

But my own self.


I walk away,
There’s no one left to wait with me,

I’ll drive away. Yeah.


I’ll walk away,

And this glory is unknown to me,

Walk away. Yeah.


Walk away,

There’s no one left to wait with me,

Drive away. Yeah.

Walk away,

And this glory is unknown to me.

Walk away. Yeah.

Walk away.

This town is too small for me.

THANK YOU! I reached my goal, in 2017 I set out to release a free song on Danny Hauger Podcasts every week. I picked my favorites for a new annual tradition of a New Year, new album. This collection is my most varied yet, combining my history of acoustic rock with individual songs of the hip-hop, rock, folk, and electric genres. In some ways "Laddering" ventures sideways into many explorations, but focuses on the theme of climbing and progressing to a place of certainty, and wondering when and where that place is.
