lyrics

One sidewalk block
And on and on
Still I walk after so long

The night still sings
Its mysterious tune
It's not yet time to hide out from the moon

Cold winter air
Of solitude
No longer scared with this attitude

These roads I know
Silent, just for me
Imaginary voices let me be

Onward to nowhere
Just breath in the air

Step by step, still I walk
Over every sidewalk block
What more could happen tonight?

I can't keep track, can't keep count
No memory of this amount
Turns out my choice wasn't right

So I'm left to ponder, left to wander
Barren paths, into the night

Transparent stars
Clouds hover low
Memories return and sink into the snow

Look for the heart
The echo of a beat
In the field where I thought we would meet

Onward to nowhere
Why should I even care?

Step by step, still I walk
Over every sidewalk block
What more could happen tonight?

I can't keep track, can't keep count
No memory of this amount
Turns out my choice wasn't right

So I'm left to ponder, left to wander
Barren paths, into the night

It's time to go! It's time to go!
Aches and pains running head to toe

I'm dozing in this frozen jungle
Where nobody can see the instability

Get back to the path
And push yourself back home

Step by step, still I walk
Over every sidewalk block
What more could happen tonight?

I can't keep track, can't keep count
No memory of this amount
Turns out my choice wasn't right

So I'm left to ponder, left to wander
Barren paths, into the night
