Bruce Springsteen

One step up (and two steps back)

Woke up this morning my house was cold
Checked out the furnace, she wasn't burning
Went out and hopped in my old Ford
Hit the engine but she ain't turning.

We've given each other some hard lessons lately
But we ain't learning
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 singing
Girl in white outside a church in June
But the church bells they ain't ringing

I'm sitting here in this bar tonight
But all I'm thinking 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 moving one step up and two steps back.

There's a girl across the bar
I get the message she's sending
Mmm.. she ain't looking 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.
