Song Lyrics

Woke up this morning my house was cold

Checked out 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`

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` 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
