"Walking in Your Footsteps" as written by and Adam Bengt Waldemar Olenius....
It's where I'm coming from
It's where you're going
In a dark tunnel, blindfolded
It's where you leave your home
And I follow the steps into your future
Like I know what's coming

I follow you like a stray
And your back says I'm looking
Never mind what's ahead
Just don't stop
No don't stop
Because I'm walking in your footsteps
Covering your tracks down river
I'm walking in your footsteps
Turning dust into diamonds

This road is not your own, it's been covered
It's been chartered so many times
Every single line every warning sign is warn down and forgotten
I follow you like a stray
And your back says I'm looking
Never mind what's ahead
Just don't stop
No don't stop

Because I'm walking in your footsteps
Covering your tracks down river
I'm walking in your footsteps
Turning dust into diamonds
Turnin' the dust into diamonds
Turnin' turnin'

So never mind what's ahead
Just don't stop
No don't stop
Because I'm walking in your footsteps
Covering your tracks down river
I'm walking in your footsteps
Turning dust into diamonds

Oh I'm walking in your footsteps
Every single one
Turning dust into diamonds
Turning dust into diamonds

    Song MeaningBeautiful song. As the father of two teenage girls, that first verse is definitely "parent to child," as we all have to go through our own "dark tunnel blindfolded" despite what good advice a parent can give.

    The rest of the song is "child to parent," as children continue to seek parental guidance throughout life, no matter how useful it is. I just hope my kids "cover my tracks" and turn my "dust into diamonds" after I'm gone!


    "Optica" was my favorite album last year (edging out National & Vampire Weekend). It's a shame the Shout Out Louds didn't get the big American audience they deserved with that album. Next time, guys!
