One Step Up
Woke up this morning, the house was cold
Checked the furnace, she wasn't burnin'
Went out and hopped 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'
And 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, 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 moving 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 looking too 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 (One step up and two steps back)
One step up and two steps back
