One Step to the Side – Matthews
From the album ‘Slow’ Julie Matthews


I put my hand in yours and I followed your footsteps
Danced in and out of the shadow you cast
Where we bound, I didn’t careless
My only wish was this moment could last
And when I look at back at the footprints I’ve made in the sand
Some where I lay for a while, others I ran
Well the one thing that’s clear to me now
That time couldn’t steal with the tide
There were always two footprints with mine
One step to the side


Words go unspoken but never between us
She knows the shape of my heart
Put all my strengths over my weakness
She played the champions part
Sometimes when I look in the mirror I’m caught by surprise
I see the trace of her face and the spark of her eyes
But the one thing that’s sure in my heart
That time won’t diminish or hide
She will walk with me all of my life
One step to the side


And when I look at back at the footprints I’ve made in the sand
Some where I lay for a while, others I ran
Well the one thing that’s clear to me now
That time couldn’t steal with the tide
There were always two footprints with mine
Never once falling behind
And she will walk with me all of my life
One step to the side
