Sam Tsui – Walking Lyrics

Walking By Sam Tsui

I call you up on a Monday
You say you’re fine
But you’ve been countin’ the mines
While you’re walkin’, wonderin’ why
The years keep flyin’ by

You kept all of my paintings
And you taped the place
Now you’re asking me how
I like the palm trees in LA
I tell you they’re okay
So much that I could say

‘Cause you’ve been walkin’ for so long
While I sing the songs you gave me
Been down the road and back again
Pickin’ pennies from the pavement
Savin’ up all of your luck for me
And if I haven’t told you, yet
I felt every step of your walkin’, walkin’

You got a million questions
And now they’re all in me
‘Cause sometimes searchin’ for answers
Makes it hard to fall asleep
But you taught me how to dream

You say you don’t like my haircut
Don’t care if it’s the style
I tell you I love you
And I gotta run, but I
I call you in a while
So you go another mile

‘Cause you’ve been walkin’ for so long
While I sing the songs you gave me
Been down the road and back again
Pickin’ pennies from the pavement
Savin’ up all of your luck for me
And if I haven’t told you, yet
I felt every step of your walkin’, walkin’

And although there are time I may not show you
It’s impossible to say how much I owe you
Even now, if I turn around, I’d see
You’re still walkin’ next to me

Every day it gets clearer
I’m a lot like you
And wish any luck
I’ll have a son or daughter, soon
And I’ll know what to do

I’ll just start walkin’ and keep on
While they sing the songs I give ’em
Like all the music you gave to me
All the beauty and the rhythm
Isn’t that all anyone can do?

You’ve been walkin’ for so long
While I sing the songs you gave me
Been down the road and back again
Pickin’ pennies from the pavement
Savin’ up all of your luck for me
And if I haven’t told you, yet
If I haven’t told you, yet
I felt every step of your walkin’, walkin’
