about

This was always going to be a dark and moody country song. But Louis and his boys wanted to stomp instead - so now it's a runaway rock locomotive, rumbling dangerously down out of the hills. My old partner in crime Hereward Kaye from Café Society joins in on vocals and piano.

lyrics

Feet On The Floor

It was one of those days you can't judge anything
I didn't know if it was Autumn or Spring
Was it something beautiful born
Or something beautiful dying
I was walking down the road and my head was too light
I didn't know what had happened last night
But if I couldn't recall it I couldn't swear I was trying

'Cause I'm putting my feet back on the floor
It never hit me this way before
And though I felt my spirit soar
I'm putting my feet back on the floor
I'm setting my soul upon the ground
And walking away without a sound
Except for you closing the door
Got my Feet On The Floor

You don't mess around with the status quo
You don't rock the boat that you're trying to row
And when the water gets rough
It's women and children first
But if you slide from your seat in some kind of a daze
You might be excused a little heartfelt praise
For the ministering angel
Who comes to quench your thirst

Still I'm putting my feet back on the floor
It never hit me this way before
And though I felt my spirit soar
I'm putting my feet back on the floor
I'm setting my soul upon the ground
And walking away without a sound
Except for you closing the door
Got my feet on the floor

It took me days in my mind
Wrangling and chiding
And saying 'Boy don't be a fool'
To remove from inside the idea that I
Was in love with you
In love with you

It was one of those days you can't judge anything
I didn't know if it was Autumn or Spring
Was it something beautiful born
Or something beautiful dying
I was walking down the road and my head was too light
I didn't know what had happened last night
But if I couldn't recall it
I couldn't swear I was trying

Because I'm putting my feet back on the floor....
It never hit me this way before
And though I felt my spirit soar
I'm putting my feet back on the floor
I'm setting my soul upon the ground
And walking away without a sound
Except for you closing the door
Got my feet on the floor...
Except for you closing the door
Got my feet on the floor.
