Footsteps Lyrics

Patience could've done us well
'Cause I could tell that all we lack was presence
Then I would've fell, you could've helped

But here's to being honest, uh
Neither of us knew what we wanted, uh
But all we knew is that we cared, uh
Still all we painted was a moment, uh

And when I walked away
I left footsteps in the mud so you could follow me
And when I walked away
I left footsteps in the mud so you could follow me
You're so bad at holding water, slips right through your fingers
We'd both end up drowning, it would hit the ground
And then the path would wash away
Wash away

Look
And I really wanna work this out 'cause I'm tired of fighting
And I really hope you still want me the way I want you
And it really feels like this shit been on autopilot
And it's a bitch you want me
The bitch I am, but not the chick you want
Residual damage left in place of what was beautiful
Excuses only work when what we've done is still excusable
You let the truth unfold

But still, cheers to being honest, uh
Neither of us knew what we wanted, uh
But all we knew is that we cared, uh
Still all we painted was a moment, uh

And when I walked away
I left footsteps in the mud so you could follow me
And when I walked away
I left footsteps in the mud so you could follow me
You're so bad at holding water, slips right through your fingers
We'd both end up drowning, it would hit the ground
And then the path would wash away
Wash away

You are a vision of perfection
In my eyes, I was caught up in a blessin'
Didn't realize how it wasn't fair (fair) to compare (-pare)
All the things I knew that I've been through (been through)
As if you didn't have anything that you went through
I treated you like medicine (I treated you like medicine)
But I guess I wasn't listening (no, when you)
When you tried to explain that you had hurt and pain, too
But as long as I felt better, then (I felt better) it was all good
But we wasn't good (wasn't good, so)
So convinced that things were understood (thing were understood, yeah)
Meanwhile, I had baggage to unpack
And I just had to admit that (I just had to admit that, yeah)
Still dealing with the battles, feeling so inadequate (inadequate)
And I know that I should've stayed
But at the time, it felt like I had to quit (I had to quit, yeah)
And I know that you probably thinking
Just I ain't thinking 'bout myself
But you still playing in my head to this day talking 'bout
You could've helped (uh)

But still, cheers to being honest, uh
Neither of us knew what we wanted, no
But all we knew is that we cared, uh
Still all we painted was a moment (ah)

And when I walked away
I left footsteps in the mud so you could follow me
And when I walked away
I left footsteps in the mud so you could follow me
You're so bad at holding water, slips right through your fingers
We'd both end up drowning, it would hit the ground
And then the path would wash away
Wash away (wash away)
