Step Away To Move Closer

Step away

Use just a little faith

A vacation

From a lover’s unwanted fate

Step away

To stop the hurt

Cracks growing

Heart bleeding

Step away

Just to re-evaluate

What they say is true,

Time can heal

All wounds.

Only if we let it.

You move closer

Like we never changed

Like I have always been

Right by your side


That I stepped away

Three years passing by

Just move closer

Like we never parted

Just move closer

To the way we started
