"Footsteps" as written by and Peter Lawlor....
You take him places I can't go
You tell him things I don't know
And even when the bonds hold fast
You make me hate the past

Walking in your footsteps
I used to walk by your side
How could you leave me
On the very edge of suicide
Suicide...

He leaves you traces I can see
He takes the things you gave to me
And even in the coldest place
I'm just an empty space

Walking in your footsteps
I used to walk by your side
How could you leave me
On the very edge of suicide
I'm lost without you
But well I know you go your own way
You never needed me no matter what you say

Walking in your footsteps
I used to walk by your side
How could you leave me
On the very edge of suicide
Suicide...

Walking in your footsteps
I used to walk by your side
How could you leave me
On the very edge of suicide
Suicide?

    General CommentThis song is amazing - it speaks so clearly about a place we've probably all been in, or will be.

    General CommentJust listened to that album again after years that it lingered around on my sideboard. And this song speaks to me. It is one of those songs, that tell the truth better than your own words. Love it, though it's a tough one!
