Footsteps Lyrics

by Pet Shop Boys

Footsteps in the dark
Only love will break your heart
Footsteps, footsteps

Whenever trouble comes around
Or lonely nights lead underground
And far in the dark abandoned cars suddenly
Start up an anxious sound

As long as I hear your
Footsteps in the dark
That's all I need

Footsteps in the dark
Only love will break your heart
Footsteps, footsteps

When loneliness induces fear
Like waves against a ramshackle pier
When thunder and rain scar the windowpane
Once again I want you near

As long as I hear your
Footsteps in the dark
That's all I need

I'm longing to see you
I want you, I need you

Like a child who feels afraid
Of the dark at night
Hoping to hear a gentle touch
Turning on a welcome light

As long as I hear your
Footsteps in the dark
That's all I need

As long as I hear your
Footsteps in the dark
That's all I need

Footsteps in the dark
Only love will break your heart
Footsteps, footsteps

Footsteps in the dark
Only love will break your heart
Footsteps, footsteps, footsteps
