Liner Notes: 

The word capricious has several synonyms that could be used here - mercurial, volatile, variable, whimsical - but I stuck with capricious after much thought.

Lyrics: 

Capricious

Chorus:
You’re a footprint on a beach
An imprint in the sand
As capricious as a summer storm
As fickle as the wind

V1
Tell me who you are
And what you want from me
I need to know how far
We’ll go before you flee

Bridge:
Don’t keep me in the dark
Don’t keep me in suspense

Chorus:
You’re a footprint on a beach
An imprint in the sand
As capricious as a summer storm
As fickle as the wind

V2
Do you want to stay?
Or do you want to leave?
Why can’t you just say?
Some words I can believe

Chorus:
You’re a footprint on a beach
An imprint in the sand
As capricious as a summer storm
As fickle as the wind

I like The footprint in the sand line.

This comes off as melancholic to me. I could hear a jazzy slow tone in the background.

Good job!

Yeah, nice flowing lyrics, they have that bounce that vocalists love to play with!

That's a great chorus. I felt compelled to say it aloud in order to feel the flow. And the footprint on the beach is a tremendous image/metaphor around which to build a song
