All of a sudden, heard some footsteps from behind me
Think she wanted to hold me but she only told me…
While Laws is walking away, he hears footsteps coming from behind him, and sees that it is her. He assumes she wanted to get back together with him but she was letting him go, told him to follow his own path.
