One Step Ahead

(McDonald/McAlinden)

    

Day ending, night beginning,
my radio, consolation,
My body, my rhythm,
my lover gone straight to heaven

 

I'll see you one step ahead
You'll be there one step ahead

 

What I need shelter from scares me more than the mightiest storm
Wind and wolf at my door without you I don't care anymore

 

Early morning plane is trailing
a snowy wake across the horizon
Your ghost embraced me cold as Saturn
night fell on me like an assassin

 

I'll see you one step ahead
You'll be there one step ahead

 

What I need shelter from scares me more than the mightiest storm
Wind and wolf at my door without you, I don't care any more

 

You are, you are sweeter than, sweeter than honey
