His Shoes

(Keith Stegall/Gary Harrison/Carson Chamberlain)

I remember the time
Before you were mine
And I was dying to be in his shoes

Now he's gone away
And I'm in his place
But his memory hasn't moved
The shadow he cast just grows larger than life
How can the past cut two hearts like a knife

I can't walk away
But how can I stay
Any way I step I lose
My back's to the wall
I stumble and fall
Trying to live my life in his shoes

He wasn't a saint
So what are these chains
He holds on both of us
You give it your best
But you can't forget

And my love's not strong enough
To put out a fire that someoen else lit
Or walk in the footprints that never will fit

I can't walk away
But how can I stay
Any way I step I lose
My back's to the wall
I stumble and fall
Trying to live my life in his shoes

I can't walk away
But how can I stay
Any way I step I lose
My back's to the wall
I stumble and fall
Trying to live my life in his shoes


In his shoes
In his shoes
