Step By Step - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


(lead vocal - lenny zakatek)

I was just a joker in a serious game
I didn't have the heart to play
But sooner or later
I'll find a reason to throw it away
Risin' on the crest of a natural wave
That never seems to break my way
I'm livin' without it
But i got to do something about it

Step by step little by little
Step by step take it line by line
Move move move, move a little closer

I was just a runner in a one horse race
Livin' on the don't pass line
Sooner or later
I got to lose cause i'm wasting my time
Lady luck must have been a wonderful girl
She's never been a friend of mine
I'm living without her
But i still got that mountain to climb

Step by step little by little
Step by step rake it line by line
Move move move, move a little closer

Step by step the deal is mine
