I Walked - Sufjan Stevens

I Walked

The Age of Adz
indie electronic experimental singer-songwriter electronica


The title of Age of Adz is a reference to the apocalyptic art of schizophrenic artist Royal Robertson (1936-1997). According to the I Walked Songfacts, this song appears to describe Robertson's marital breakdown and how it prompted him to return to the art he had loved as a child.


Sufjan Stevens (pronounced "SOOF-yahn"; born July 1, 1975) is an American musician, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Petoskey, Michigan. He is known for his lyrically focused and instrumentally rich songs that often relate to faith and family. He has enjoyed wide critical success in the United States. He is considered part of the folk revival through indie pop, but his influences are very broad, including experimental electronic music, the jazz of Vince Guaraldi, and the academic minimalism of Steve Reich and Philip Glass.

I Walked - Sufjan Stevens

[Verse 1]
Lover, will you look at me now?
I'm already dead to you
But I'm inclined to explain
What I could not before

Whatever you didn't do, what you couldn't say
I am sorry the worst has arrived
For I deserve more
For at least I deserve the respect of a kiss goodbye

Tell me, do you think of me now
As I think of you?
For I could not have shaken
The touch of your breath on my arm

For it has stayed in me as an epithet
I am sorry the worst has arrived
For I'm on the floor
In the room where we made it our last touch of the night

[Chorus]
I walked, cause you walked
But I won't probably get very far
Sensation to what you said
But I'm not about to expect something more

I would not have run off
But I couldn't bear that it's me, it's my fault
I should not be so lost
But I've got nothing left to love

[Verse 2]
Lover, will you look from me now
I'm already dead
But I've come to explain
Why I left such a mess on the floor

For when you went away I went crazy
I was wild with the breast of a dog
I ran through the night
With a knife in my chest, with the lust of your loveless life

[Chorus]
I walked, cause you walked
But I won't probably get very far
Sensation to what you said
But I'm not about to expect something more

I would not have run off
But I couldn't bear that it's me, it's my fault
I should not be so lost
But I've got nothing left to love

[Outro (2x)]
I walked, cause you walked
I walked, cause you walked
I walked, cause you walked
I walked, cause you walked
