Footprints
Tom Gregory Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Can't seem to let go of all that's behind me
You're like an old ghost that just won't let go of me
You're in my blood, in my heart you stay

Sometimes I forget what you did to me
How can someone be my poison and my remedy?
You're in my blood, in my heart you stay
I know I'll never find a way
No, no matter what I say
No matter what I do
It's only you I can't escape now

You got your footprints on me
From my head to my toes
All your marks on my chest
Leave a glimmer of hope
No, I don't know, yeah
I feel it in my head and my

Footprints on me
From my head to my toes
All your marks on my chest
Leave a glimmer of hope
No, I
You leave your footprints on me
Until my blood runs cold

Can't seem to let go of everything you do to me
Even though it hurts, it still feels so new to me
In my blood, in my heart you stay

I know I'll never find a way
No, no matter what I say
No matter what I do
It's only you I can't escape now

You got your footprints on me
From my head to my toes
All your marks on my chest
Leave a glimmer of hope
No, I don't know, yeah
I feel it in my head and my

Footprints on me
From my head to my toes
All your marks on my chest
Leave a glimmer of hope
No, I
You leave your footprints on me
Until my blood runs cold

You know I'll never find a way
Oh, no matter what I say now
No matter what I do
It's only you I can't escape now

You got your footprints on me
From my head to my toes
All your marks on my chest
Leave a glimmer of hope
No, I don't know
I feel it in my head and my

Footprints on me
From my head to my toes
All your marks on my chest
Leave a glimmer of hope
No, I




You leave your footprints on me
Until my blood runs cold

Overall Meaning

In Tom Gregory's song Footprints, the artist explores the theme of being unable to escape the past and the memories of an old love. The lyrics reveal that the memories of the past still weigh heavily on his mind, and he finds himself unable to entirely move on. The opening lines read, "Can't seem to let go of all that's behind me, you're like an old ghost that just won't let go of me." This comparison to a ghost implies that the memory of this person who is now gone, still haunts him, and he cannot escape it. The artist also acknowledges that he has mixed feelings regarding this person, as he sings "How can someone be my poison and my remedy?" Therefore, the song explores the idea that love is complicated, and it is difficult to walk away when feelings are still attached.


The repetition of the phrase "You got your footprints on me" throughout the song illustrates the idea of being unable to shake off the memories of a past love. It is as though the person from the past has left an imprint on his life that he cannot erase. The artist sings, "All your marks on my chest leave a glimmer of hope," suggesting that even though he is aware that he needs to move on, he cannot help but hold on to the idea that perhaps they may reconnect in the future.


Overall, Tom Gregory's song Footprints is a deeply emotional track that explores the themes of love, the past, and the complexities of emotions. The artist uses his lyrics to paint a picture of someone who is profoundly affected by the memories of their past love, and by doing so, he creates a relatable and moving song.
