Olly Murs – Footsteps lyrics
[Verse 1]
Yeah I've been single, I've been heartbroken
But I ain't looking for sympathy
Tonight I'm out and with my best shirt on
No there ain't nothing stopping me

[Pre-Chorus]
But oh, she's hot
And oh, my gosh
I gotta take a deep breath
I gotta walk right up and tell this girl
She coming home with me

[Chorus]
I'm taking footsteps over to the girl at the bar
Yeah I'm try'na play it cool but I don't know where to start
I'm taking footsteps over to the girl at the bar
Yeah I'm dancing my way over, gotta know who you are

[Post-Chorus]
Gotta know her name (I don't know her name!)
Gotta get that number in my phone
What do I say? (What you gonna say?)
I hit this one shot then it's on
No time to waste (What you waiting for?)
Gotta do it quick before she goes
True love don't wait, wait, wait

[Verse 2]
Okay, listen
Hold up a second, let me check myself
Have I got something stuck in my teeth? (Yeah yeah, just there, just there)
She's a knockout, ain't no average girl
I'm punching way out of my league

[Pre-Chorus]
But oh, she's hot
And oh, my gosh
I gotta take a deep breath
I gotta walk right up and tell this girl
She coming home with me

[Chorus]
I'm taking footsteps over to the girl at the bar
Yeah I'm try'na play it cool but I don't know where to start
I'm taking footsteps over to the girl at the bar
Yeah I'm dancing my way over, gotta know who you are

[Post-Chorus]
Gotta know her name (I don't know her name!)
Gotta get that number in my phone
What do I say? (What you gonna say?)
I hit this one shot then it's on
No time to waste (What you waiting for?)
Gotta do it quick before she goes
True love don't wait, wait, wait

[Bridge]
I wanna tell you that you're beautiful
That you look just like the right kinda girl for me
Oh what I'm saying might sound typical, yeah yeah
But when I saw you girl, I found it really hard to breathe

[Chorus]
I'm taking footsteps over to the girl at the bar
Yeah I'm try'na play it cool but I don't know where to start
I'm taking footsteps over to the girl at the bar
Yeah I'm dancing my way over, gotta know who you are

I'm taking footsteps over to the girl at the bar
Yeah I'm try'na play it cool but I don't know where to start
I'm taking footsteps over to the girl at the bar
Yeah I'm dancing my way over, gotta know who you are

[Post-Chorus]
Gotta know her name (I don't know her name!)
Gotta get that number in my phone
What do I say? (What you gonna say?)
I hit this one shot then it's on
No time to waste (What you waiting for?)
Gotta do it quick before she goes
True love don't wait, wait, wait

[Outro]
I'm moving
I'm taking footsteps over to the girl at the bar
