The Shoes Stories by Iris Koh

September 1, 2015

After we performed this choral premiere of The Shoes Stories at our inaugural concert last night, we have been receiving many enquiries on the lyrics and heartfelt thoughts of how the stories shared along with the singing touched their lives. Here are the lyrics and also if you would like to find out the inspiration and story behind this composition, you may read it at Iris' Facebook Post .

 

We hope you related to the song as much as we did, and feel free to share in the comments box, your story, that we all may be able to walk this journey with you..a mile in your shoes..

Shoe Stories

A Story of Singaporean Women

 

Music by Iris Koh

Lyrics by Iris Koh, Cindy Trl and Peggy Ling

 

 

I walk all day and I walk all night

To see the world with my very eyes

To feel the winds against my face so I take flight

I flew all day and I flew all night

The clouds and the birds they are passing by

and then I look below to see you walking by

 

You were in your shoes and I was in mine

You saw the sparkle in my eyes

I smiled at you and said, "Come along with me."

You turned around and walked away

I felt the teardrops in my eyes

If only you could walk a mile in my shoes

 

You walked all day and you walked all night

looking for something that you couldn't find

Your feet were sore and your shoes were torn but you didn't mind

The sun came up and the sun went down

The season changed and you're still around

And then one day you look up to see me flying by

 

You were in your shoes and I was in mine

I saw the sparkle in your eyes

I smiled at you and said, "What did you find?"

You took my hand and looked at me

You found something precious I couldn't see

If only you could walk a mile in my shoes

 

We walked all day and we walked all night

Leaving footsteps of our journeys behind

Searching for our hopes and dreams in the distant light

We laughed and cried we got up and tried

We can choose to let go or we choose to be tied

To the baggages we carry in our daily lives

 

You were in your shoes and I was in mine

We will never know what it is like

To walk in each other's shoes

We will have to try

Everyday we go our separate ways

So what would you say at the end of the day?

If only I could walk a mile in your shoes

 

Walk with me I'll show you all the memories inside

If only I could walk a mile in your shoes
