lyrics

53 Steps
Copyright Rachel Platten/ Fredrik Tomander

I am 53 steps from my apartment
I have memorized the cracks that age the road
I couldn't quite grasp what my heart meant
but I think that it was telling me to go

now I’m going up down spinning round trying to communicate
but these words aren't quite what I'm trying to say
I’m coming close, close close
I feel it in my toes toes toes

Theres a light that shines when I'm on the road
There's a brand new sky that I need to know
I'm reading signs and I’m seeing patterns in the snow
As I walk into the great unknown

17 blocks from the station
48 stops from the coast
till I could jump with all my clothes on in the ocean
And let the water rock me in her throws

And go up down spin round leave it up to fate
like a sailor finding comfort in the waves
Im coming close close close
I feel it in my toes toes toes

Theres a light that shines when I'm on the road
There's a brand new sky where I need to go
I'm reading signs Im seeing patterns in the snow
As I walk into the great unknown

I can feel it in my toes, I know i’m coming close
so I’ll leave this old town with her saints and her ghosts
I’m coming close, signs say I need to go
