"Walk Away" is the second single from Franz Ferdinand's second album, You Could Have It So Much Better. The release date of the single is 5 December 2005.
The song's melody line is borrowed from Kraftwerk's "The Model", or in German, "Das Modell". This is particularly clear in the opening of the song.
I swapped my innocence for pride, crushed the end within my stride
Said I'm strong now I know that I'm a leaver
I love the sound of you walking away, you walking away
Mascara bleeds a blackened tear, oh
