  • Woke up cold one Tuesday
    I'm looking tired and feeling quite sick
    I felt like there was something missing in my day to day life
    So I quickly opened the wardrobe
    Pulled out some jeans and a t-shirt that seemed clean
    Topped it off with a pair of old shoes
    That were ripped around the seams
    And I thought these shoes just don't suit me

    [Chorus]
    Hey, I put some new shoes on
    And suddenly everything is right
    I said, hey, I put some new shoes on, and everybody's smiling
    It's so inviting
    Oh, short on money
    But long on time
    Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
    And I'm running late
    And I don't need an excuse
    'Cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes

    Woke up late one Thursday
    And I'm seeing stars as I'm rubbing my eyes
    And I felt like there were two days missing
    As I focused all the time
    And I made my way to the kitchen
    But I had to stop from the shock of what I found
    A room full of all my friends dancing round and round
    And I thought, "hello, new shoes
    Bye bye them blues."

    [Chorus]

    Take me wandering through these streets
    Where bright lights and angels meet
    Stone to stone they take me on
    I'm walking to the break of dawn
    I'm walking to the break of dawn

    [Chorus: x2]

    Take me wandering through these streets
