Footsteps in the Hallway, A SWG-Starburst Song
Lyrics
Footsteps In The Hallway
2014 Starburst/SWG

I keep sleeping in the daytime
Though I'm wide awake at night
These dreams are far too heavy
Cause my soul's become too light
Had I known my life was ending
I'd of prayed a whole lot more
It's a purgatory feeling
And it lasts forever more

I can feel right thru the darkness
And it seems as bright as day
It's a nightmare of forgiveness
Though I know I never paid
I keep longing for the silence
Of these voices in my head
But this burning demon presence
Chants the yearnings of the dead

(chorus)
There are footsteps in the hallway
There's a creaking on the stair
Perhaps the front door lockset
Was never really there
There's a silver blade a-shining
With a slice of pure delight
I won't bother to continue
Breathing in this air tonight

Could you please take this forgiveness?
Cause I really want you to
I never really earned it
So I'll give it back to you
It's a gift that makes me lonely
In the solitude of truth
It's a dirty guilty secret
I acquired in my youth

My father was a sailor
Though I hardly knew the man
He had passed this way to heaven
Shortly after I could stand
Though all the days keep passing
Just because they know they can
I will never reach the promise
Sinking in all this quicksand

(chorus)
There are footsteps in the hallway
There's a creaking on the stair
Perhaps the front door lockset
Was never really there
There's a silver blade a-shining
With a slice of pure delight
I won't bother to continue
Breathing in this air tonight

(bridge)
I keep standing in the sunshine
In the middle of the night
And I know my eyes are open
But my heart is frozen tight
Will I be this way forever?
Without chivalry or shame
I keep screaming on the inside
At the monster I became

(chorus)
There are footsteps in the hallway
There's a creaking on the stair
Perhaps the front door lockset
Was never really there
There's a silver blade a-shining
With a slice of pure delight
I won't bother to continue
Breathing in this air tonight
