Verse 1:

One step closer to where I started from,

Is two steps further into the past,

Three steps away from where I need to be,

Is four steps closer to where I am.



Chorus:

Ohhh, these dirty footprints,

They line the shades of grey.

All the scars and fading memories are

Leading me away

And these broken hearted lies are screaming

For all they have to say

And my heart is saying follow as I walk the other way.

Away…



Verse 2:

So much to try for, so little to gain…

So far to run, but so hard to stay…

No one knows better but no one knows more

These are my thoughts as i…

I walk past these pictures,

I'd walk through these doors,

Sat by these windows

And walked on these floors,

I've sat in this darkness,

Searching for light,

Knowing inside me, it will be alright…

Alright…



Chorus:

Ohhh, these dirty footprints,

They line the shades of grey.

All the scars and fading memories are

Leading me away

And these broken hearted lies are screaming

For all they have to say

And my heart is saying follow as I walk the other way.

Hey… away,

Hey… away.
