Every Step I Take
I wake up to the sound of a morning train

Ten thousand yesterdays running through my ragged brain

Put on my warmest coat step out and light a smoke

Start to sing along with the pouring rain


With every step I take I pass through another day

When first i stumble and then I fall

Its the same damn date and time

Trips up my troubled mind

Gets me every time I stop


Well I’ve been meaning to sweep out this empty room

And all the ghosts here made of dust

But something down in my soul

Says I may need those ghosts to hold

In case your memory starts to rust


So here I go again right back down that road I’ve been

Horizons just beyond my grasp

I fear there's nothing more

Than just what I’m searching for

Picking up the pieces of my past






(cont’d)

Now the day is all but gone and someones turned the streetlights on

I start to feel like I’m wasting time

Down the road theres a lighted door

Inside theres nothing more

Than more of nothing I surmise


Every step I take I pass right through another day

When first I stumble and then I fall

Its the same damn date and time

Trips up my troubled mind

Gets me every time I stop


I wake up to the sound of a morning train

ten thousand yesterdays running my ragged brain
