Rachel Platten – 53 Steps lyrics

Verse 1:
I am 53 steps from my apartment/ I have memorized the cracks that age the
Road/ I couldn't quite grasp what my heart meant/ but I think that it was
Telling me to go/ now I'm going up, down, spinnin' 'round/ tryin' to
Communicate/ but these words aren't quite what I'm tryin' to say/ I'm
Coming close, close, close/ I feel it in my toes, toes, toes/
Chorus:
There's a light that shines when I'm on the road/ there's a brand new sky
Where I need to go/ I'm reading signs, signs, signs and I'm I'm I'm seeing
Patterns in the snow/ as I walk into the great unknown/
Uh uh oh uh uh oh/
Verse 2:
17 blocks from the station and 48 stops from the coast/ I could jump with
All my clothes on in the ocean/ and let the water rock me in her throws/
And go up, down, spinnin 'round leave it up to fate/ like some sailor
Finding comfort in the waves/ I'm comin' close, close close/ I feel it in
My toes, toes, toes/
Chorus:
There's a light that shines when I'm on the road/ There's a brand new sky
Where I need to go/ I'm reading signs, signs, signs and I'm I'm I'm seeing
Patterns in the snow/ As I walk into the great unknown/
Oh, oh, oh/
Bridge:
Uh oh uh oh uh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh /I feel it in my toes/ and I know I'm
Coming close/ so I will leave this old town with her crazy and her ghosts/
I'm comin close, close, close/ signs say I need to go/
Chorus:
There's a light that shines when I'm on the road/ There's a brand new sky
Where I need to go/ I'm reading signs, signs, signs and I'm I'm I'm seeing
Patterns in the snow/ As I walk into the great unknown/ As I walk into the
Great unknown/ as I walk into the great unknown/ oh, oh, oh
