One Less Set of Footsteps

“We been runnin away from
Somethin we both know
Weve long run out of things to say
And I think I better go

So dont be getting excited
Oh when you hear that slammin door
Cause therell be one less set of footsteps
On your floor in the mornin

And weve been hidin from somethin
That should have never gone this far
But after all its what weve done
That makes us what we are

And you been talkin in silence
But if its silence you adore
Therell be one less set of footsteps
On your floor in the mornin”

One Less Set of Footsteps-Jim Croce

Some of my favorite songs are those that tell a story. I’d like to be able to write as well as old Jim and so many other songwriters. Or maybe what I am saying is that I’d like to be able to write a song. It is something that I have played around with quite a bit, but never really delved into.

Brevity is not my strong suit and it seems to me that songwriting requires that. Afterall how many really long songs are there. I suppose that you can list Freebird, Stairway to Heaven, Bohemian Rhapsody and Layla among those, but I haven’t got the stones to try to place my stuff in the same category as those guys.
