Footsteps (You Are My Guide)

Words and music by Bill Pere
 
I see the road signs pointing south and north
East and west, directions are not clear
My mind keeps weighing, wondering, swaying back and forth
How to know which way to go from here

Always there at my side
My heart hears the sound of your footsteps
Calm the fear, make it clear when the road is a pathway untried
Each day a chance to decide
To walk in the light or the darkness
Find what's right, find the spark, set the sight and set out on the ride
Two ways to go, you are my guide

I see the canyon and I see the sky
Shadows change with every night and day
My eyes keep seeking, searching, peeking, asking why
It's hard to find a sign to point the way

Always there at my side
My heart hears the sound of your footsteps
Calm the fear, make it clear when the road is a pathway untried
Each day a chance to decide
To walk in the light or the darkness
Find what's right, find the spark, set the sight and set out on the ride
Two ways to go, you are my guide

I hear two voices calling me inside
With choices, and I wonder what to do
I stand before two doors that I can open wide
Which one should I open and step through

Always there at my side
My heart hears the sound of your footsteps
Calm the fear, make it clear when the road is a pathway untried
Each day a chance to decide
To walk in the light or the darkness
Find what's right, find the spark, set the sight and set out on the ride
Two ways to go, you are my guide
