One Step Up

Lyricist: Bruce Springsteen    Composer: Bruce Springsteen

Woke up this morning
The house was cold
Checked the furnace she wasn't burning
Went out and hopped in my old Ford
Hit the engine but she is not a turning
Given each other some hard lessons lately
But we aren't learning
Same sad story thats a fact
Once step up and two steps back

Bird on a wire outside my motel room but he is not singing
Girl in white outside a church in June
But the church bells they are not ringing
Sitting here in this bar tonight
And all I'm thinkinthinkin' is
How the same old story same old act
One step up and two steps back

It's the same thing night all night
Who's wrong and 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
Living one step up and two steps back

There's a girl across the bar
I get the message she's sending
Mmm she is not looking too married
We well honey I pretended
Last night I dreamed I held you in my arms
The music was never ending
We danced as the evening sky faded to black
Moving one step up and two steps up
(One step up and two steps back)
One step up and two steps back
(One step up and two steps back)
One step up and two steps back
(One step up and two steps back)
One step up and two steps back

Ohhh baby we're Moving

One step up and two steps back
One step up and two steps back
One step up and two steps back
Mmm one step up and two steps back
(One step up and two steps back)
(One step up and two steps back)
