Wayne Shorter – Footprints lyrics
(music - Wayne Shorter)
(lyrics - Kitty Margolis)

Thousands of years before history recorded
Deep in the jungle a woman stepped on wet clay
And the print remained there
Future reminder of ages ago

Many lives later a traveler crossed the same path
Under the vines he saw traces of that footprint
Silent testimony
Spiritual journey begun long ago

Eons of changes, illusion of some progress
Fearfulness leading us further from the soul power
Known in early ages
When nature's heartbeat rang loud on the earth

The key to our freedom lies not just in our thinking
The ancient intuition that's buried deep within us
Is waiting to be set free
The creator's gift to her children must flow

We call on the past now to show us where to go
We're closer to then than we may want to show
We're closer to then than we may really know
Footprints
Ancient footprints

    We leave bright moments lik footprints on the sea shore we cry for romance and circumstances lost or
    visions we have lived for
    fading like yesterday’s rhyme on the sands of time

    We leave warm mem'ries like footprints on a snowdrift
    tracing them one sees the icy breezes blow swift
    as the feathered mounds shift
    in the end all is erased on the frozen waste

    We live brief lifetimes like footprints on forever
    fueled by the fires of desire that we may never
    satisfy nor savor
    we play a dream pantomime falling into time

    (tag)
    we dance our tango sublime
    silhouettes in time
    we play a dream pantomime
    falling into time
    fading like yesterday’s rhyme
    on the sands of time
