Don't even think about reachin' me, I won't be home
Don't even think about stoppin' by, don't think of me at all
I did, what I had to do, if there was a reason, it was you...

Aah...don't even think about gettin' inside
Voices in me head...ooh, voices
I got scratches, all over my arms
One for each day, since I fell apart
I did...oh, what I had to do, if there was a reason, it was you

Footsteps in the hall, it was you, you...oh...
Pictures on my chest, it was you, it was you...

Hey...I did, what I had to do...oh, and if there was a reason
Oh, there wasn't no reason, no
And if, there's something you'd like to do
Just let me continue, to blame you

Footsteps in the hall, it was you, you...oh...
Pictures on my chest, it was you, you...oh...

    General Commenti know it's part of the mamasan-triology, but that isn't what i think of when i hear it.. i've never once thought of an execution. it makes me think about someone who would have done - and did do - anything for love, but the person just didn't understand. the footsteps in the hall is the lover leaving after finding out what happened. the singer is upset that their true love left them, and this song is the product of that hurt, and anger. i was just wondering if anyone thought the same as me..

    **--sidenote--** for anyone who's never heard this song live, it is absolutely AMAZING. i cried for the entire song, and still continue to cry everytime i think about it. it's sooo emotional.
