Words and music by Leah Kunkel

Oh, last night I sat by your side
Oh, I was feelin' so lonely
Would have given up my pride
All night I was so lonely

Then you took to the streets
You don't have much to say
But I listened to your feet
As they walked away
Bye bye bye bye

Now walking's the only thing I know
Oh we do well together
I ain't thinkin' 'bout where we go
Lace up your boots of leather

Then we take to the streets
We don't have much to say
But I listen to our feet
As we walk away
Bye bye bye...

I wasn't lookin' for love
I'm a little sorry you're gore
But until we have something to say
L'll just keep walking along
Bye bye bye...

Ask me if I need you now
Oh no I'm feeling great
If you hunt me in my dreams
Ah there is one escape

I'll just take to the streets
I won't have much to say
But I'll be listening to my feet
As they walk away
Bye bye bye...
