oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

last summer's footprints are walkin'
walkin' dove walkin' dove walkin' dove walkin' dove
through last summer's sand
a dove walkin' dove walkin' dove walkin' dove
and where the footprints end
where the footprints end
what happened then where the footprints end?
was not a wave that swallowed them
no gust of wind that did them so
no, where the footprints end
we must have flown!
yea we must have flown over tempting sea
we must have flown heavier than air
our heart and brain, the odd couple lookin' at rings
the sea above, the sky below
we must have flown where the footprints end
and when we realize we can't fly
will we say "do you think we must have danced up into the sky?"
last summer's footprints are walkin'
walkin' dove walkin' dove walkin' dove
through last summer's sand

    Song MeaningA couple of corrections:

    "over tint and sea" should be "over tempting sea"

    "??" should be "like the Odd Couple" - which was a movie and show from the 1960's and 70's about two very different characters living together.

    The key to this song is the line "lookin' at rings". My take is it's about his surprise at suddenly becoming engaged and wondering if it was just the romance of summer that led to this big step, before they are really ready. Doves are the sign of love and romance and they were doing the walk. Their path was sure and steady and then suddenly they jumped ahead in a flight of fancy. It's a beautiful song.
