"One Less Set Of Footsteps"

(As recorded by Jim Croce)
JIM CROCE

We've 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 gettin' excited, a when you hear that slammin' door
'Cause there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, in the morning.

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
Well there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, in the morning.

Well there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, one less man to walk in
One less pair of jeans upon your door, one less voice a-talkin'
But tomorrow's a dream away, hmm today has turned to dust
Your silver tongue has turned to clay, and your golden rule to rust
If that's the way that you want it, well it's the way I want it more
'Cause there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, in the morning.

Well there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, one less man to walk in
One less pair of jeans upon your door, one less voice a-talkin'
But tomorrow's a dream away, oh and today has turned to dust
Your silver tongue has turned to clay, and your golden rule to rust
If that's the way that you want it, well it's the way I want it more
'Cause there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, in the morning
Well there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, in the morning.
