    I first heard Tok's footprint in high school. The song pretty much scared the fear of God in me.

    Right now I don't exactly like scary stories being used to preach but back then in secondary school...it was like the only message from God I could remember.

    The first story was the story of a mother whose son steps out and warns him to come home as soon as possible. It is a heartbreaking story and it always is when a child dies. In this story, it seems to be either a very young child or every good child I say this because the story goes that the mother didn't know he wouldn't come back.

    The next story talks about is about an abandoned child. The child was abandoned from the early age of 2. He didn't have a family and replaced family life with the life with street kids and the life if in the shopping mall as the only family he knew.

    I both stories the characters cry to God and God replies:

    When you cry, I cry...I cry along with you. When you smile. I smile...I smile along with you.

    The song doesn't have a portion for smiles if you ask me...but that is an implied concept...

    I think there will be better times as long as we follow God's footprints?

    lyrics

    "Hurry up and come back"
    Was the last thing she said to her son
    The day his life was taken
    She didn't know he wouldn't come back
    He died from the bullet of a gun
    And now her little boy is gone
    She said "Help me, Lord help me"
    And she looked up to the sky
    And she heard a voice reply
    When you cry, I cry
    I cry along with you
    When you smile, I smile
    I smile along with you
    When you cry, I cry
    I cry along with you
    When you smile, I smile
    I smile along with you
    Another baby left homeless
    Abandoned when he was two
    So the street side kids at the shopping mall was the family he knew
    It's not easy being homeless
    Sometimes you have to do, what you have to do
    And he didn't have a mom or dad to help him get through
    He said "Help me, Father help me"
    And he looked up to the sky
    And he heard a voice reply
    When you cry, I cry
    I cry along with you
    When you smile, I smile
    I smile along with you
    When you cry, I cry (Based on a true story)
    I cry along with you
    When you smile, I smile (Keep yuh head up)
    I smile along with you
    It was early Sunday morning, me get up ah watch the news
    Den me hear say last night a sea view dem kill ah youth
    Den, mamma tell me say her church sister Jacqueline
    Just lose her brother over sea view garden
    When she tell me, jah jah know it, mash me up, nuh tell me lie
    But yuh know say man a thuggist so yuh nuh go see me cry
    Everyday and everynight she still ah ask the father why
    Her brother had to die
    She heard ah voice reply
    When you cry, I cry
    I cry along with you
    When you smile, I smile
    I smile along with you
    When you cry, I cry
    I cry along with you
    When you smile, I smile
    I smile along with you
    When you cry, I cry
    I cry along with you
    When you smile, I smile
    I smile along with you
    When you cry, I cry
    I cry along with you
    When you smile, I smile
    I smile along with you
