Kenny White - One Step Up lyrics

one step up, two steps back
fighting off this heart attack
the southern sky’s got northern lights
but they don’t even seem so bright
i won’t go back there without you

pinch me i believe i’m dreaming
words take on a whole new meaning
pictures, they don’t look the same
i don’t respond to my own name
i won’t go back there without you

if i live to 90 years
i couldn’t cry this many tears
as it is, i’m beyond blue
and less and less i know is true
and i won’t go back there without you

bent over the stove at home
i catch myself in the chrome
i kind of recognize the face
but someone’s walking in my place
my heart is full, full of space

how’d i get here, where’d you go?
is there anything i know?
the wind is stirring up the lake
this constant dull and vicious ache
is something i may never shake

it’s a cooler night than usual
so i pull out the winter wool
the footsteps that i’d hoped were yours
keep stopping just outside the door
and i won’t go back there without you

i got my friends, i make ends meet
i got my dog who’s awfully sweet
i got my family, i’m not alone
i just have to pick up the phone
but i got no place to call my home

as kids we laughed and screamed and yelled
chased each other, ran like hell
the saddest things, the scariest
would vanish with a little kiss

so take me to another day
wash me in the ocean’s spray
let’s talk about the things to do
there’s so much to look forward to
but i won’t go back there without you
no i won’t go back there without you
i won’t go back there without you
