Footprints

(McDonald)

     

It takes more than a key
To unlock my heart, oh.
Did you aim, shoot to kill,
Set to stun my heart, oh?

Something tells me you can't take a no.
When I tell you, you should stop not go.

There are no footprints left in the snow ahead;
Nothing to follow, afraid to be led.

There's a map of my heart but
It's been lost, oh.
You must set a compass
And chart a course, oh.

I'm an island with driftwood
Beaching my shore, oh.
Temptation is to gather it all
And more, oh.

Something tells me you can't take a no.
When I tell you, you should stop not go.

There are no footprints left in the snow ahead;
Nothing to follow, afraid to be heard.

Over and over, I'm falling over,
Still reaching out for a new hand to hold.
