McCartney, Paul - Footprints Lyrics




It's Beautiful Outside, An Old Hand Gathers Wood,
Can He See Me Sitting Here? His Mind Is Somewhere Else.
His Friend Have Flown Away, He's Left Out In The Cold.
He Won't Sit By My Fire, He Says He Likes It In The Snow.
Where Footprints Never Go, He Likes It In The Snow.
It's Getting Dark Outside, The Old Hand's Going Home,
Has He Someone Waiting There? Or Is He Living On His Own?
Where Footprints Never Go, He Likes It In The Snow...
White Blanket, Hiding The Traces Of Tears She Didn't See,
Oh White Blanket Covers The Memory
Of All That Used To Be. All That Used To Be.
But His Heart Keeps Aching In The Same Old Way,
He Can't Help Feeling That She Might Come Back Someday.
It's Beautiful Outside, A Magpie Looks For Food.
The Old Hand Throws A Crumb,
Do You Think He's Found A Friend?
Where Footprints Never Go, He Likes It In The Snow...
White Blanket, Hiding The Traces Of Paths He Didn't Take
Oh White Blanket Covers The Memory
Of Moves He Didn't Make
Oh White Blanket, Hiding The Traces Of Tears She Didn't See
Snow White Blanket Simply Covers The Memory
Of All That Used To Be.
But His Heart Keeps Aching In The Same Old Way
He Can't Help Feeling That She Might Come Back Someday.

    Enjoy...

    It's beautiful outside, an old hand gathers wood, 
    Can he see me sitting here? his mind is somewhere else.

    His friend have flown away, he's left out in the cold. 
    He won't sit by my fire, he says he likes it in the snow. 
    Where footprints never go, he likes it in the snow.

    It's getting dark outside, the old hand's going home, 
    Has he someone waiting there? or is he living on his own? 
    Where footprints never go, he likes it in the snow...

    White blanket, hiding the traces of tears she didn't see, 
    Oh white blanket covers the memory 
    Of all that used to be. all that used to be. 
    But his heart keeps aching in the same old way, 
    He can't help feeling that she might come back someday.

    It's beautiful outside, a magpie looks for food. 
    The old hand throws a crumb, 
    Do you think he's found a friend? 
    Where footprints never go, he likes it in the snow...

    White blanket, hiding the traces of paths he didn't take 
    Oh white blanket covers the memory 
    Of moves he didn't make 
    Oh white blanket, hiding the traces of tears she didn't see

    Snow white blanket simply covers the memory 
    Of all that used to be. 
    But his heart keeps aching in the same old way 
    He can't help feeling that she might come back someday.

    I'll never understand why this album got such crap reviews. It's bloody good and one of his most inventive and experimental. Brilliant.

  4. Ryan Stills

    There is this part that hauntingly reminds me of either Girl or I'm Only Sleeping... But his mind keeps thinking. I'm drunk

  5. PAUL JACKSON

    BEAUTIFUL.THIS ALBUM IS BRILLIANT.

  6. Java Fizz

    My favorite Paul song that hardly anyone has ever heard.

  7. robert barry

    Its perfect

  8. robert barry

    OH i love this song so much .

  9. Red Devil9

    This is one of my favourites. And some idiots say 'he never wrote anything good after the Beatles'. He wrote many good songs afterwards - Maybe I'm Amazed, Dear Boy, Every Night, My Love, Listen to What the Man Said, Jet, Another Day, Arrow Through Me, Goodnight Tonight, Tug of War, Wanderlust, Once Upon a Long Ago, Jenny Wren, Beware My Love.....

    Java Fizz

    Anyone who said Paul never wrote anything good after the Beatles either needs to get a hearing test or...well...they have closed minds. His writing in the 70s is especially genius.

    This song, is quite the gem. Just played it for my wife. She had never heard.

    Matthew Foster

    Agree his super deluxe edition reissues are totally the most worth getting by far out of all four Beatles!!! So much I've never heard before!!!

    Joseph Cruz

    Somebody Who Cares, Hope Of Deliverance, Once Upon A Long Ago, Pipes Of Peace, This One, Put It There, etc, etc 😎

    Roland Boss

    Right on brother

    Roland Boss

    @Java Fizz and in his 70s

  10. colin keen

    18th March 2018 snow in Cornwall,just had to hear this song.

  11. Java Fizz

    Of all his genius, this ranks right up there with the best. Yet so little known.

  12. FERNANDO MARINELLI

    I love this album. Good Times Coming/Feel The Sun, Footprints, However Absurd and Pretty Little Head, my favorites

  13. Shane McKenna

    The best song on '' Press to Play '' by some margin.

  14. colin keen

    A little gem of a song.,Love hearing this song at winter time,just perfect.

  15. Dan Wilcox

    I love this song

  16. CARLOS BUSCATORE
