Slaves – Footprints


I’m still the person I was
When I used to think I wasn’t enough
Till you took me in I’d never been so happy to be wrong
I finally feel I’m where I belong

My eyes are open
But losing focus
These words unspoken
Would wring my broken heart out

You left your mark on me like footprints in the snow
Would you promise me you’ll never let me go
If we’re pulled apart by horses
And my body’s given up
I’ll die before the end of our love
Before the end of our love

After the flight
I’m asleep beneath a blanket of white
Then you cross my mind like power lines exploding in a storm
Just the thought of you is keeping me warm

And it’s only sleeping
Don’t waste your weeping
On thoughts that creep in
And call your bleeding heart out

You left your mark on me like footprints in the snow
Would you promise me you’ll never let you go
If we’re pulled apart by horses
And my body’s given up
I’ll die before the end of our love
Before the end of our love
