Walk è il secondo singolo rilasciato dal settimo album dei Foo Fighters Wasting Light (2011). E’ stato uno dei maggiori successi in assoluto della band, debuttando direttamente al primo posto della Billboard Rock Songs americana (scalzando il loro singolo precedente “Rope”) ed in seguito valendogli ben due Grammy Awards: Best Rock Performance e Best Rock Song con annessa esibizione live alla cerimonia di consegna, più anche un MTV Award per il miglior videoclip.
Dave Grohl, il compositore del brano, ha spiegato che esso è ispirato alla propria piccola figlia Violet Marie ed al periodo in cui iniziava a camminare da sola.
Inizialmente Walk doveva essere inserita nell’album precedente Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (2007), ma poi si è preferito inciderne una versione migliore destinata a dare un finale positivo (è l’ultima traccia) all’album successivo.

Foo Fighters Walk Chords Accordi Testo Lyrics

A	         E
A million miles away
         F#m
Your signal in the distance
        D		  Dm
To whom it may concern
A	            E
I think I lost my way
           F#m
Getting good at starting over
D	     Dm
Every time that I return
A                            E
I'm learning to walk again
               F#m
Can't you see I've waited long enough
               D       Dm
Where do I begin?
A                          E
I'm learning to talk again
   F#m						
I believe I've waited long enough
              D          Dm
Where do I begin?

Do you remember the day
We built these people mountains
And sat and watched them burn
I think I found my pain
Can't you feel it growing stronger
Little conqueror

I'm learning to walk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?
I'm learning to talk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?

A
Now
                         E
For the very first time
                         F#m
Don't you pay no lie
                   D     Dm
Set me free again
A
You keep alive a moment at a time
But still inside a whisper to a liar
      E
To sacrifice but knowing to survive
The first to find another state of mind
F#m
I'm on my knees, I'm waiting for a sign
D             
Forever, whenever
Dm 
I never wanna die

I never wanna die
I'm on my knees
Never wanna die
Dancing on my grave
Running through the fight
Forever, whenever
Never wanna die
Never wanna leave
Never say goodbye

I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?
I'm learning to talk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?

I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
I'm learning to talk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough
