	        Intro D7M  Em7  G  D7M  A 

         D7M               Em7   G 
I'm only one step ahead of heart-break 
D7M                   F#m  B7 
    One step ahead of mise-ry 
Em                   F#m           Bm 
   One step is all I have to take, backwards 
          Em                                  A  
To be the same old fool for you, I used to be 

         D7M               Em7  G 
I'm only one step ahead of your arms 
D7M                    F#m        B7 
    One kiss away from your sweet lips 
Em                   F#m                   Bm 
   I know I can't af-ford to stop, for one moment 
                     Em                       A  A7 
'Cos I'm just out of reach of your fingertips 

D                  Bm             D                Bm 
  Your warm breath on my shoulder, keeps reminding me 
          Em                           C#             F#m  C# 
That it's too soon to forget you, it's too late to be free 
          Em   A 
Can't you see? 

         D7M               Em7  G 
I'm only one step ahead of your love 
D7M                 F#m        B7 
    I try and yet I can't take two 
Em                         F#m                Bm 
   Seems like I'll have to take that one step backwards 

     Em7                                   A    D7M  Bm 
'Cos one step ahead is a step too far away from you 
Em7                                       A    D7M  Bm 
    One step ahead is a step too far away from you
