Isley Brothers, “Footsteps in the Dark”

When I daydream about being a big league baseball player, I imagine that the Isley Brothers’ “Footsteps in the Dark” is my walkup song.

Let’s start off Sunday right with the smoothest music imaginable from Cincinnati’s own Isley Brothers.

Thanks as always for your support for Down the Drive. Let’s finish off the weekend in style, Bearcats baseball.

Are we really sure

Can a love that lasted for so long still endure?

Do I, really care? Hey, hey

Let’s talk about the distractions goin’ on elsewhere

I keep hearin’ footsteps baby

In the dark, in the dark

Why? I keep hearin’ footsteps baby

In the dark, in the dark

My mind drifts now and then

Lookin’ down dark corridors and wonders what might have been

Something’s up ahead

Hey, should I keep this same direction or go back instead?

I, I keep hearin’ footsteps baby

In the dark, in the dark

Why? I keep hearin’ footsteps baby

In the dark, in the dark

Honey, now lets stop walkin’ around

When there’s love lost to be found

And you know I still care, I still care

What’s the sense in goin’ elsewhere?
