Where the earth receives
The seeds from the sky
Where the ancient fill the newborn
With the breath of life

I will run once more
Before this body dies
I go running and I feel my muscles
Burning in the light

In our innocence the world is young
And strong, beating at the center of perfection
Is this heart of mine.

Feel the mountain move to hear our song
See the children stand where they belong

Follow in my footsteps now
Follow in my footsteps
Follow in my footsteps
Follow in my footsteps

I am the lightening streak
Across the brooding sky
I am witness to the spirit
Of your sunrise

Call if your fevers rage
Is in need of tenderness
Feel that I am, feel that I am
Feel that I am, the medicine

Feel the mountain move to hear our song
Hear the thunder rolling for our song

Call the wind
Call the rain
Call the first ones by their names
Call the moon
Call the sun
Call the blood back to my veins

Follow in my footsteps now
Follow in my footsteps
Follow in my footsteps
Follow in my footsteps

Feel the mountain move to hear our song
Hear the thunder rolling for our song

Call the wind
Call the rain
Call the first ones by their names
Call the moon
Call the sun
Call the blood back to my veins

Follow in my footsteps now
Follow in my footsteps
Follow in my footsteps
Follow in my footsteps
You can follow in my footsteps
Follow in my footsteps
Follow in my footsteps yeah

    General CommentSimon sang this with Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles. It's a beautiful song. I haven't heard it but the lyrics are beautiful.
