One Less Set Of Footsteps
Jim Croce
We been runnin' away from
Somethin' we both know
We've long run out of things to say
And I think I better go

So don't be getting excited
When you hear that slammin' door
'Cause there'll be one less set of footsteps
On your floor (in the mornin')

And we've been hidin' from somethin'
That should have never gone this far
But after all it's what we've done
That makes us what we are

And you been talkin' in silence
But if it's silence you adore
There'll be one less set of footsteps
On your floor (in the mornin')

Chorus:

Well there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor
One less man to walk in
One less pair of jeans on your door
One less voice a-talkin'

But tomorrow's a dream away
Today has turned to dust
Your silver tongue has turned to clay
And your golden rule to rust

Well if that's the way that you want it
That's the way I want it more
Well they'll be one less set of footsteps
On your floor (in the mornin')

(Repeat from Chorus to end)
