One Step Up Lyrics
Woke up this morning my house was cold - checked the furnace she wasn't burnin'
Went out and hoped in my old Ford - hit the engine but she ain't turnin'
We've given each other some hard lessons lately - but we ain't learnin'
We're the same sad story that's a fact - One step up and two steps back
Bird on a wire outside my motel room - but he ain't singin'
Girl in white outside a church in June - but the church bells they ain't ringing
I'm sittin' here in this bar tonight - but all I'm thinkin' is
I'm the same old story same old act - one step up and two steps back
It's the same thing night on night - Who's wrong baby who's right
Another fight and I slam the door on - Another battle in our dirty little war
When I look at myself I don't see - The man I wanted to be
Somewhere along the line I slipped off track - I'm caught movin' one step up and two steps back
There's a girl across the bar - I get the message she's sendin'
Mmm she ain't lookin' to married - And me well honey I'm pretending
Last night I dreamed I held you in my arms - The music was never-ending
We danced as the evening sky faded to black - One step up and two steps back
One step up and two steps back --- One step up and two steps back
