Lyrics

Tread Softly by Ileana Burdine

I walk out each morning same worn pair of shoes
I'm frightened to ask but I've nothing to lose
If you gave me your heart I'd cradle it well
And in return I'd give you all of myself

If you'll tread softly
As you enter my dreams
Will you tread softly
Because as you walk
You're dreaming with me

I see us together in a home made of gold
Where sunflowers, cherry trees and children grow old
I'd come home each evening and be grateful for
The person who loves me is the one I adore

If you'll tread softly
As you enter my dreams
Will you tread softly
Because as you walk
You're dreaming with me

Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths
I'd spread those cloths under your feet
But I being poor have only my dreams
So I lay them down
Weighted with hope
And ask that you step gingerly

If you'll tread softly
As you enter my dreams
Will you tread softly
Because as you walk
You're dreaming with me
If you'll tread softly
As you enter my dreams
Will you tread softly
Because as you walk
You're dreaming with me
