The day that you told me, you wanted to be free,
I agreed with everything you had to say,
But I confess I lied, and darlin' how I cried,
When the echo of your footsteps died away.

(Chorus:)
I thought our castle had a firm foundation,
But all along was only made of clay,
With aching heart I found, it tumbled to the ground,
When the echo of your footsteps died away.

If I had only known, I'd feel so all alone,
I'd have begged down on my knees for you to stay,
The gates to paradise, swung closed before my eyes,
When the echo of your footsteps died away.

(Chorus:)
No matter where you are I wish you well dear,
And I ask God to bless you every day,
For I cannot deny, I bid my heart goodbye,
When the echo of your footsteps died away.
