One Step Up Lyrics

Woke up this morning
the house was cold

Checked the furnace
she wasn't burnin'

Went out and hopped 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 ringin' .
I'm sitting 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
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'

she ain't lookin' too married and me

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.
