Lyrics: Musty, faded, black and whitish photographs.
Stories I'd once heard and then forgotten.
Strange names and dates on stacks and stacks of paper.
Scenes from a world I never knew.

Faces in time I don't remember,
People from times I can't understand.
How can I begin to imagine their footsteps in a time not mine?

Step by step I start to examine what it must be like, that time they knew.
Seeing their dreams and lifting their bur-dens,
Seeing through time the life they knew.

Footsteps in time I somehow remember,
People from a time I now understand.
Now I can begin to imagine their footsteps in time, now mine.

Their struggles weren't so different, they had mountains yet to climb.
They cried and prayed and fell and had to rise.
They pushed on through the darkness, faced each single step in time,
Holding fast, moving on, keeping strong!

Faces in time I somehow remember,
People from a time I now understand.
I don't even have to imagine their foot-steps in time, they're mine.

Faces in time I somehow remember,
People from a time I now understand.
I don't even have to imagine their foot-steps in time, they're mine.
They're mine.
