Footsteps

 

Footsteps behind you, drawing near

Cold in your heart, a sneaking fear

Weight on your shoulder, you may find

The hand of the past not always kind

What you deserve is what youll get

Little mistakes you tried to forget

Theyre all catching up with you

And theres not a thing that you can do.

 

Oh, what a tangled web we weave

When we lie, when we cheat

When we hide and deceive

Twisting the truth to our own ends

Betraying lovers and hurting our friends

Its time

Its time to reap what we sowed

Its time to pay

Pay day

 

Well get our comeuppance at last

Well never learn to run that fast

Its time

Time we received our just rewards

Its time to pay,

Today.

 

Weve cheated fate for far too long

Its no surprise that it all went wrong

This time

This time theres no way out at all,

Its time to pay

 

Footsteps behind you, drawing near

Cold in you heart, a sneaking fear

Weight on your shoulder, you may find

The hand of the past not always kind

What you deserve is what youll get

Little mistakes you tried to forget

Theyre all catching up with you

And theres not a thing that you can do
