(ian hunter/mick ronson)

Some folk leave courage,
Some folk leave you hope
Why am I out here hangin'
Like a fool at the end o' my rope
Some folk leave you wisdom,
Some folk leave you signs
You can never be sure
What went on before
Life is just a matter of time

Picture of you,
Clouding my view
I'm following in your footsteps,
Tryin' to make some sense of it all
Maybe it's a sign of weakness,
But that's where my footsteps fall
I'm following in your footsteps,
Tryin' to hang on to your dreams
You never got what you wanted
So I never got what I need
I'm following in your footsteps,
'cos that's where the footsteps lead

Someone must have given me anger,
Someone must have given me hate
Or why would I stand here shakin',
When there's so many chances to take

Pictures of you,
Climb into view
I'm following in your footsteps,
Tryin' to make some sense of it all
Maybe it's a sign of weakness,
But that's where my footsteps fall

I'm following in your footsteps,
Watchin' my children grow
They're following in my footsteps
Takin' it on the road
We're following in your footsteps
'cos that's where the footsteps go
We're following in your footsteps, yeah
'cos that's where your footsteps go
