Alison Moyet – Footsteps lyrics
It wont be clean and easy
There's more to carry than a case or two
I come with a history that I wont forget in a life with you
This man's been true to me and I didn't come by him easy
Shame shame crying shame
Losing more than a family name
Don't let your footsteps falter
You're gonna get wet if you dip in the water
Be sure what you take me for and I wont ever want for more
Don't let your footsteps fail me
You're gonna get sunk if you slip on the way
When I say the time is right
Go walk this mother out of sight

I didn't plan to meet you now here I am on a roundabout
See the road where I lived my life
If I go with you there's no turning back
I'm tired and I aint proud but I want you more than I ever have
Tell me baby, did you think about it?

It wont be young and pretty
Look around you, you know it
Aint nothing new for me I don't get fooled so easy
What's good aint gonna be fine six months on down the line
Shame shame crying shame
Losing more than a family name

Have you found it, did you find what you're looking for
You know you change your mind and it's a waste of time
And heaven only knows you'll be on your own
