Footprints

I used to be the one that you loved 
Was the one who made you so happy you cried 
All of those late nights and long conversations 
Lead to nothing now the fountain’s gone dry

People change and so do feelings 
Hearts and minds don’t always see eye to eye 
I think about this life, the love that I’ve missed 
As the years pass me by

So say what you what you will, it’s finally found 
From the branch of our mothers, you must hit the ground 
Rightly I can say there might come a day 
To spit on my footprints, cracked they may be

Your muscles stretch fire, when you stay where you are 
All the things that you’ve known are still known 
When your friends leave you then, can I still meet you there 
Would you rather be alone

Ten years and a kid, mean more than it did 
When we were just finding out 
The questions you ask, don’t give you a pass 
To make like you had no doubt

So say what you what you will, it’s finally found  
From the branch of our mothers, you must hit the ground  
Rightly I can say there might come a day  
To spit on my footprints, cracked they may be

It’s amazing how the world will beat you 
Up and down, taking its toll 
I might just be a little lonely, but if 
You can’t trust yourself, then why another soul
